Summit ridge of Mt. Clarence King
First morning light on the SE face of Mt. Clarence King. I took this photo from above the shelf where we spent a cold and practically sleepless night after a full day of establishing first ascent (unconfirmed) of NE Ridge. Here Pavel is leading the first of the three remaining pitches, partially frozen and stiff but happy to be finally moving. We went over the summit and descended Clarence King's SE Ridge (on the left side of the photo) - September 17, 2006

Hey Craig, thanks! Actually, it is a morning photo. I took it from the spot where be bivy'd the night before. We were so stiff and cold when I shot this... fortunately the sun came out so we could at least regain feeling in our hands. We were out of water by that time too :)

I think a view like that could make a cold night worth it!

Thanks man. I am glad that it turned out. It was rather hard to handhold my camera between the bouts of shivering :)

Thanks Charles. We were lucky to be positioned for bivy at that spot. Morning sun "hit" us first and lit up the entire face in front of us with warm alpenglow...
