... of Little Bear. We saw you guys climbing up the Hourglass in the afternoon while we were descending, good job with the traverse!

Thanks, the traverse was incredible and loaded with exposure. Looking forward to see how the Bells traverse compares.

I've done the Bells traverse from south-to-north, and difficulty-wise, I don't see how it could compare to the LB-Blanca traverse. For one thing, it's a much shorter ridge traverse, and judging from your pics, the exposure is less and the moves are easier. It's great fun, though, with a spectacular position between those excellent peaks!

Thanks for the info on the Bells traverse. I am planning on going up the Bell Cord couloir if snow condtions permit. Then ring South and do the traverse to North. I'll be sure to post pics after the trip :)

Yeah I did the Maroon Bells traverse a few weeks ago. We climbed the Bell Cord Couloir and then did the traverse South to North. It was alot of fun and we did it without a rope. Just got back from doing Capitol this weekend. Now I just have Culebra and Pikes left.

I would love to do this traverse some day. Those clouds on a traverse like that in Colorado would have made me really uneasy- kudos for pushing through that! What is "loams?"

The clouds didn't make me uneasy until I saw some lightning about .5 miles away. We climbed down off the ridge a bit and sat there until the storm passed and luckily it wasn't too bad at all. As for loam that was a typo that was supposed to say Looms. Whoops.
