En-Route to/from Walton Date Climbed: Jul 30, 2009
Ron and I passed over this saddle en-route across Harrison Glacier to a successful climb of Walton Mountain. On our return across Harrison Glacier our trekking poles, firmly lashed to our packs while were were using ice axes, were buzzing in a thunderstorm. It cleared briefly while we ascended to the saddle but retuned with a vengeance pinning us down for the night. Lightning nailed nearby summits, rock pummeled down and wind and rain made for an interesting night huddled near a cliff.
I never planned to be up there, but my brother and I got separated (my fault), and I had to look for him. My searching took me up to the Divide. I found my brother (later), and I found indescribable beauty, too.
