Do you know if he's still around? I've looked but i can't find any information on him.

No, I don't. A lot of these giants seem to fade into the woodwork. He's probably out there, chuckling if he ever reads this :). I was just thinking today that if I ever get back to Washington State for a period of time, I think the greatest thing I could do would be to attempt one of his routes on the Norwegian Buttress above Lake Serene. Ignoble failure would still be a reward, because that is certainly failing big! :D

Thank you. Please accept my taking a bow to your standing ovation. :)

Actually I didn't create the view, I only pointed my camera and pushed the button, so I just consider myself lucky.

I'd never even heard of the Wild Sky Wilderness. Now I want to go there!

Take my word for it. Many of the other wilderness areas in Washington are a better choice. SP member Redwic might argue with me because he is sentimental about the Wild Sky, but it is not the best.

The best area to visit for mountaineering is probably the North Cascades National Park. On the other hand the Wild Sky is known for it's lack of trails, washed out roads, and lousy bushwhacking. Many of the smaller peaks have poor views on the summit. But if this picture inspired you, then I have accomplished my goal.

If your thinking of coming to Washington, check out some hikes on the Mountain Loop Highway or on the Mount Baker Highway. PM me if you'd like more info.

A stunning photo! Looks cold. Not familiar with this mountain but being located in a wilderness area with the name of, "Wild Sky", it HAS to be good!

Actually, you're right. Baring is a good climb. The peak next to it, Merchant, is also supposed to be good.

Amazing photo. You do really nice work. It also took some effort to be out there in the cold. Thank you for sharing and giving me a thrill.

After I climbed Baring I knew I would never look at it the same. Every time I see it I think, I can't believe I climbed that thing. This shot is fantastic. Great work here Gimp.

The lean of the peak is so mesmerizing. I'm all choked up!

The lean is even more pronounced when viewed from a little further north.
