Between Rock And Air
A gendarme on the NE ridge forced us onto the south face, Bald Mountain. We discovered a repel sling near this spot. June 3, 2011.

This looks a bit dicey, did you find a easier way back down?

Unfortunately not. This shot was taken on the way back down. What did Michael say about the trip?

He said there was a bit of climbing and that the ending was sketchy and that some of the rocks were wet.

The "Josh man" is RIGHT!

It does look rather dicey, kinda like
diced onions with pumpernickel bread and
a tall frosty milk shake on the side !!!

That's hilarious! Lol. I didn't know it while we were there but I recently found out that some people rope up for the entire upper ridge.

Yeah, some folks even "rope up" for
McClellan Butte, at least the last 200 yards.

Believe Mount Si can be done without one.

That's a good point. I've yet to rope up on rock, but I guess I'll have to one of these days. Perhaps this year on Olympus.

Olympus is isolated enough where a rope
would come in handy. Let us know how you do!
