Descending in winter
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.

Yeah! And a real blast from the past to see this picture. McClellan's Butte in winter can have a pretty remote feel to it.

Thx for the comment!

That looks like it would be a lot of fun if you weren't being buffeted by killer wind and cold.

Hi Mark! Yeah, it was fun...I don't think it was incredibly windy, though there was some wind. If the wind were strong I wouldn't have gone up because with the icy footing it depended so much on balance.
