    Most excellent trip report! Funny yet informative. I loved the multiple mentions of the 1850 first ascent. To think, without virbam rubber, without anyone elses trip report to go by, those two dudes scaled it. Wow.

    I did the trap dike a few years ago and this brought back some good memories of it. it was definitely a fun time and a perfect cross between rock climbing and hiking.

    My late hiking partner, David Cooney, and I climbed Colden via the trap dike in the early 70s. Fortunately, it was a dry summer and the weather was spectacular. This article brings back many fond memories of doing the high peaks. Thanks for sharing.
