Great Shot

This is the best picture I've seen of this peak. Did you climb it? I've been interested in it for a few years now.

Re: Great Shot

Hi Bob! Thanks for the vote and the comment. I tried to climb it -- I spent about an hour on the peak and attempted three different lines -- but I never found anything that I was comfortable with unroped. I had other peaks on the agenda that day, so I didn't spend too much time searching around. I've heard it goes fourth-class with some exposure.

Nice

I saw this peak the other day and was wondering what it was.
