Arkansas pickin' the Pope's Nose

Kris convinced me and Mark it would be a good idea to hump big packs fifteen miles into the Weminuche wilderness area, to a rarely-climbed formation. We busted out what I think is the 2nd route on this cool face. Maybe a thousand feet, took two days, topped out in hail, lightning, and a cold heavy downpour. The descent was incredible, steep and wet. The growth in the narrow canyon was lush as a jungle. Kris dubbed it "The Pinkest Taco". *Comments edited to not make it sound like we did the 2nd ascent of original route, but rather a 2nd new route on the formation.
