Backbone Ridge With Fin Direct

Shirley topping out on pitch 11 of Backbone Ridge (IV+ 5.9). This is the first pitch on The Fin. Beautiful Colchuck Lake is far below and provides a "blue screen" background (July 22, 2006).

You dog!

Snapping them up Radek!

Nice to have that "blue screen" background. This way, you can superimpose some kind of exciting scene of mountains behind Shirley...instead of a boring ol' lake. ;-D.

Re: Gorgeous

Thank you very much Mauri!
I think this type of view from the Fin is what really makes this climb very memorable.
