Fine Jade

Looking down from above the crux finger crack at Shirley. Vertical pano of the ridge up to Castleton Tower included. My blue t-shirt and our packs are at the base ~160 feet below. In full version, you can see your approach/descent trail going down the right side of Castleton's scree cone (Apr. 30, 2006).

Thank you sunfish! Wasn't sure if this one is OK or too funky to enjoy.

Stunning vertical pano

That is so cool! Love this shot. That pitch looks hard!

Re: Stunning vertical pano

Thank you very much Martin!
The portion of pitch visible in photo is above most difficulties. The stuff I was hanging is below the bulge and really visible here (definitely hard for me).

Nothing Less....

...than brilliant R! BTW, I saw you had interest in revisting Mt. Russell. Any chance you wanna come down and do a route like 'Star Trekkin'?
