2009-08-20 Mount Russell and Carillion

I was itching to climb more Mountains but didn't have anyone to climb with.  So on a Wednesday night after work I decided to make the four hour drive up to Mount Russell.  I got there after midnight, slept a few hours and then shot up to the summit of Russell.  After five hours of hiking and scrambling on the east ridge, I arrived at the summit at 10am.  I rushed down tot he saddle, tagged  Mount Carillon and headed downhill in a three hours decent to make it back to the car by 1pm and back home before dark.

Mount Russell:  14,094ft

Mount Carillion:  13,559ft
