Beautiful. I'll bet that's Pacific Tarn right below you; at 13,400' it's the highest lake in N. America. Isn't Pacific a gem of a climb? It's my favorite CO peak. Which route did you take in this season?

Thanks for the comment. I believe you are right about that being the Pacific Tarn. To answer your question, I climbed Crystal, Pacific and Atlantic yesterday (from before dawn till after dusk) from the Mayflower Gulch Trailhead. So on Pacific it was the North Ridge that I climbed. I agree this is indeed a gem, especially the notch to top it all off. The snow and ice made for treacherous conditions, but I had all day thanks to beautiful weather. I will post a TR within a few days.

Excellent (and rare) shot of Quandary. I remember noticing this lake from the summit of Quandary last October, even though it was already frozen then.

Thanks for the comment. I'm yet to summit Quandary, but look forward to getting up there sometime.
