Grizz on an iffy gendarm bypass attempt
Eventually we went right over the top of this big rock, which always presents the most formidable obstacle on the Lone Peak's knife edge in winter. Only it usually possible to get around it. 1/26/07

I would say go up and over. But who am
I? I'm just some dude in Arizona enjoying
your wonderful pictures. Thanks, Dmitry!
Did you get enough snow during that
last storm??? Awesome.

Thanks! What last storm, I hope it wasn't last LOL.

Seriously it is not so easy to get onto the top of this boulder, but once you get there, you realize that getting down on the other side is much worse. It less snowy conditions, my fav workaround is on the left.

would be to "lasso" it with a length of
rope, kinda like a cowboy does in a rodeo.
Are there pitons in the rocks, or do most
people remove them afterwards???
I'm glad you made it to the other side.
The other side is always the best place
to be!!!

Thanks Noondueler, yes, it's better not to slip up there. That's how the same section looks from a bit further away:
