Great climb- a little of everything: loose rock, solid rock, knife edged ridges, Class 4 wall, snow fields, buzzing ice ax, route finding etc. Storms were all around us, but thankfully we lucked out for the most part. Solid fun with John.
A little snow, a little storm Date Climbed: Jul 10, 2010
This was a tough climb, just from the altitude gain. But my arms and shoulders were tired from pulling on so much stone (not normal for this peakbagger).
Some of the route was buried in sloppy snow, and we got chased by storms on our descent.
But really a ton of fun. Thanks, Sean!
