The hourglass on Little Bear, Colorado
The hourglass on Little Bear created a lot of fear in me, but it was not bad at all. I climbed it up, and did not bother with the fixed ropes on the route. The rope was actually still frozen and most of the sections were under the ice in May. I think that the biggest danger in this part of the climb are falling rocks.
I was sitting above those 3 climbers in the photo, and waited for them to pass through. I did sent a rock through after they were above me, and was amazed by its speed....
