2x2 panoramic image of...
2x2 panoramic image of Wetterhorn's summit pitch, taken from the top of the "ramp". The majority of the route is inclined at 45-60°, making it possible to descend face-out, but the final 20 feet or so to the summit is considerably steeper; I was surprised to see it not rated 4th class. However, for an easier finish (verified by Kim), follow cairns along a ledge to climber's left and climb an easier gully for the last 20 feet. 9 July 2004.

Heh-heh, I thought you would enjoy this. In my hypoxic state after rushing up the ridge, however, I flubbed the exposure, so the seams of the pano are a bit retarded. If you need it, I can put the full-sized version on my SEP website.

Great shot. Hope to do Wetterhorn in August when I come up to Lake City.

best scramble I've ever done in Colorado. It's solid. One of those routes that should feel sketchy but isn't. If you're faced with something kinda technical, just look around, and you'll find an easier way up. Definitely class 3.

Thanks for the info and encouragement. I have done Handies, Redcloud and Uncompahgre so this would be a big accomplishment for me since I am now 58yrs old.
