Descending in winter
|[ Sizes: Orig | Med | Small | Thumb ]|
Theron Welch took this photo of me descending the upper part of the scramble to the summit of McClellan's Butte, December 14, 2002. We had to move slowly because it was a fairly light layer of snow over the rocks, which were slick and icy underneath. Usually a "hands in pockets" hike/scramble, in winter the upper portion can provide some excitement :D.
