Elkhorn Upper NW Ridge

The summit block from the toe of the technical portion of the NW ridge and prior to traversing into the West Gullies. The high point in the photograph is not the summit. It's the massive gendarme that dominates this route. The entrance to the W Gullies lies just before the high point of the snowfield at the right.

Re: Fortress....

Thanks for the kind words. A good analogy and it got no less fortress like the higher we got.
