Thanks for putting up the TR, nice to know a loop can be made of this mountain, I will have to remember that when it comes time.
I know what you mean about the driving considering where I live, it's usually 8hrs or more of driving for a 9hr day in the mountains. That's why whenever anyone offers to drive I'll gladly accept that offer.
Another point is that the other side of the Beaujolais ridge is less cliffy, meaning the crossover to get to Mystery is not difficult (except for the fact that it's a longer hike with more up and down).
Maybe I'll have to tag along when you go for this one - it might help having someone coax me up the scary bits
(Interestingly, Black Tusk was no problem for me, but then, that was 20yrs ago, and the West Lion I've done several times, so I'm also comfortable there. Maybe it's the unknown that messes with my mind.)
