Emilio descending Mount...

Emilio descending Mount Massive. "Knob 12,466" is the dark colored knob on the right. In summer, the trail actually goes to the left of the knobs, but in winter, we found it more direct to pass them on the right. Despite the sunny skies, it was actually bitterly cold when this picture was taken. There were deep snows down at timberline, but on this area of the face, the snow is blown off, attesting to the high winds that constantly slam the area. Photo taken from around 12,700 feet on January 16, 2005, and on the Willow Creek Route after it joins the standard East Slopes Route.
