Thanks! This was a spur of the moment trip as 3 days with no chance of thunderstorms suddenly appeared in the forecast.

A very inviting scene. The right side of Yellow Squaw looks not so good but the right ridge walk up looks fun.

Thanks! You're right, it was easy getting to Squaw from where we were, but we found the far side (unseen in the picture) to be a lot tougher with lots of loose rock and it took a long time to make it to the top of Explorer.
