Small Tower on West Camas Peak
I thought this little tower/ridge would take me right to the summit. I thought wrong. While my companion sensibly bypassed this spot on its left, I climbed this to try what looked like some interesting scrambling.

The scrambling was interesting-- Class 3 verging on Class 4 with some exposure and sketchy rock-- and the top was small and airy, but it ended in a dropoff just high and steep enough to prevent safe downclimbing, and it was a short stone's throw from the summit. So I had to go back, but it was a nice little scramble-- no regrets.

Bitterroot Mountains, Montana-- July 2008
