If the right-hand and left lead you straight into swamp,
Of these two roads diverging in woods where you're lost,
Then the path you should choose is the one that's best trod,
Yet with all due respect to our friend Mister Frost.

Were you trying to do Both mountains in the same trip?

If I'd had a little more time I would have gone up Singepole first, and then crossed over to Streaked, but I was short on time, so I only went partway up Singepole.
