Best shot is the one at the Narrows. Beautiful lighting and the rocks really frame it nicely. Solid TR

Hey this is Tim, great post. Thanks again for the help down and finding our tent. I still cant believe we were stupid enough not to bring headlamps. Sounds like you guys got down about an hour before us. We got down about 11 to find that my girlfriend had called search and rescue on us and is demanding i get on of those transmitters. If you have any pictures of Dan or I, i would love to get those from you, Dan lost his camera in the trailhead coming down so we lost all our pictures. You two are probably about to head out for Aconcagua, good luck, have a safe trip.

Tim! I knew you would probably post sooner or later, so did SAR come for you guys?? As for the transmitter, I would not really recommend the SPOT Locator, I just don't find it reliable in consistently getting messages out. I'm gonna return it and get one of the expensive ones that uses military satellites. Anyway no worries about forgetting your headlamps, I'll try to get some pics to you as soon as my comp is set up again (wife and I are moving). Again it was good to meet you guys! -Ben

I must agree with Tim - forgetting our headlamps was probably the dumbest thing we have done. You two will go down as our guardian angels! And a well written report - no grammar issues: spelling mistackes. CU did you well! ;) Let us know how your trip to Argentina flows.

jimlupNice Report - Thanks!

I enjoyed the read. We did the cable route this past June. It was still icy though not anything like the snow conditions you guys encountered. In the technical section, I broke a crampon on our third pitch. Climbing on that rock with crampons totally sucks! In retrospect, I should have removed my crampons on the technical section and then put them back for the snow traverses.

That picture just beyond the narrows is awesome!

Thanks man! Ya the conditions were not the best; the face wasn't dry nor did it have decent snow. I hate having to jack with crampons in a precarious spot.
