Glorious outing to conquer top of Grandeur Peak.  Oreo and I started out at approx 2 degrees in the inversion poison and ended at peak in radiant sunshine. Oreo looked like he stepped out of a thai jungle by the top...sweatfest for sure the temps up there were balmy and toasty.  Wanted a lawnchair to sit at the peak for a bit.  Run down to Pipeline is one of my favorite areas of all time.  Shoe screws worked great to keep slippage to a minimum.  We left a car at Rattlesnake.  Awesome morning.

Perfect morning.. I always over dress! I had sweat rolling of my face that last .50 mile. I could've been in shorts and shirtless.. Trail / weather was awesomeness.

Thanks again!
