2-12-2011 "lone peak," south thunder, dresden, coalpit

Close to a 10,000 day, 9,921 was close enough.  Original plan to climb a northern, north east facing chute on LP, traverse south to the summit and then hit what ever looked good.  Our summit bid was thwarted by a few rock bands so we headed to South and North Thunder.

Our route up N. Thunder, turns out we could have skinned the back side
