We talked about climbing this mountain the night before. We had a big day planned without climbing Flinsch so we agreed it would be a game time call. When we arrived at Dawson Pass, the start of the climb, we both agreed to scramble up a little ways at least to get a better view of the mountains since it was a beautiful day. About 1/4 of the way up I knew there was no way I was not going to climb this mountain. How many times will I be standing here? So we went for it, and summited in about an hour and a half. It was one of the highlights of the whole trip.
