Yours truly on the summit of Russell after our climb of Fishhook Arete. I was feeling like crap due to altitude and the miserably cold and constant wind blasting us the entire day. In fact, shortly after this shot was taken, I blew chunks of previous night's dinner. This is looking roughly west. The slopes on the left side of photo make up the "backside" (~north side) of Mount Whitney (June 19, 2005).
