I normally do not write about failed attempts but I thought this adventure warranted a description anyhow. At the very least it might serve to help others in their attempt at the same objective.
On June 2nd Eric and I set out from Denver at 1:30am. We met up in Boulder at 2am to transfer gear and make the drive to the Bear Lake Trailhead in Rocky Mountain National Park. The drive was a familiar one, since this would be the 3rd time in over a year that we had attempted this line. Our hopes were high that this would be our day.
