Final moves to Storm Peak's summit
|[ Sizes: Orig | Large | Med | Small | Thumb ]|
My partner making the last few very exposed moves onto the summit of Storm Peak after traversing the rotten knife-edge on the east ridge. The horrible quality of the rock is obvious. There is a vertical drop of several hundred feet directly to climber's left. It took us a while to get up the courage to finish the climb. Thanks to a bad case of summit fever, I remember this as the stupidest thing I did in the mountains without a rope. San Juan Mountains, Colorado. August 2008.
