High on Castor, with the SW ridge looming in the background
We climbed the west face, not the much harder SW ridge. But shortly before the summit, the route up the west face joins the SW ridge.

24 July 2012.

I'm liking the contrast in this one.

Thanks Josh. Although here it looks as if we had marginal weather that day, it was actually pretty decent. The clouds came and went. More often than not we were in the sun, with a partly clouded sky that didn't look threatening. This one is an exception, though the only threat is that soon we might have zero visibility. Considering where we are, that would have been unfortunate, but route finding is pretty straightforward.
