Type 2 Fun? Or Type 2 BULLSH*T?

On Halloween, I did my hardest hike yet by trying to get to the top of 11,000 foot Mt Talac. It’s a 3200 feet elevation gain in 5.5 miles. This wouldn’t have been a big deal for me if it weren’t for the 1.5 miles of steep rock scramble up a steep bowl. Once we got up to the top of that boulder Hell, I was spent. We had another mile and another 1100 vertical feet to go and I just couldn’t do it with daylight running out on us. These pics are from the top of the bowl and you can get a glimpse of the rock we had to climb over that lasted forever.
Going back down that rock field took a couple of hours and I twisted my ankle a couple of times. It was so hard on my legs, they started to cramp towards the end of that boulder Bullshit (as I called it all the way down) once we got to a normal trail, my legs felt better and we made it back to the car just as the sun set. We were prepared to hike in the dark, but the temp was dropping drastically and it would have been miserable even though I was prepared for cold. I’m always prepared for the worst when hiking the Mountains. So Mt Talac isn’t completely off of my list, next year I’ll attempt it again but from the back side of the mountain. I hear the view from the top of Talac is the best in the Tahoe area. Not done with you yet Mt Talac. Have you done Talac? Do you have a Type 2 BullShit story?
