wow wow

Damn! I think the plasterboard wall next to my computer here has more features on it than that face. Does it have any routes? It doesn't look like it from here.

Re: wow

I have pretty much every weekend until the end of October already allocated/planned for climbing :)

So, something will have to get bumped out in order to squeeze this one in...

Re: wow wow

Secor lists 2 routes, a III 5.8 A2, and a plain ol' II 5.8, which does seem hard to believe.

Perfect

I feel compelled beyond belief to climb this beautiful peak. It seems you have inspired us all. And what a perfectly balanced photo this is.

incredible face

was thinking about the upcoming bc ski season and was throwing out ideas of places to go. kept thinking about this photo and another photo of this peak that a friend took during a ski trip a couple of years ago. this is one absolutely amazing peak.

Re: incredible face

So, are you skiing on Mt. Walt in this photo? No, that can't be it. Too far to the southwest. Maybe Eocene Peak?
