The Schreckhorn
(With thoughts of Leslie Stephen)


Aloof, as if a thing of mood and whim;
Now that its spare and desolate figure gleams
Upon my nearing vision, less it seems
A looming Alp-height than a guise of him
Who scaled its horn with ventured life and limb,
Drawn on by vague imaginings, maybe,
Of semblance to his personality
In its quaint glooms, keen lights, and rugged trim.

At his last change, when Life's dull coils unwind,
Will he, in old love, hitherward escape,
And the eternal essence of his mind
Enter this silent adamantine shape,
And his low voicing haunt its slipping snows
When dawn that calls the climber dyes them rose?

Thomas Hardy -1897

Royce Peak, from our campsite (Chris Owens' "Hall of the Mountain Gods")  just beyond the chain link gate. the trail that others talk about on this page is gone. Do not approach the main wall from the gate. I've posted correct direction in a photo and comment.  Looking down from the Main Wall, the trail goes from where this photo was taken down to the dirt lot below. Don't waste your time going any other way.  GO THIS WAY. Lots of bad approach beta here. Park at the "P" follow the blue line on roads, then the trail that's marked with the yellow line. Anything else is madness.  Starting to descend the North Ridge of Independence Peak
