En-Route to/from Walton  Sucess!

Ron and I passed over this saddle en-route across Harrison Glacier to a successful climb of Walton Mountain. On our return across Harrison Glacier our trekking poles, firmly lashed to our packs while were were using ice axes, were buzzing in a thunderstorm. It cleared briefly while we ascended to the saddle but retuned with a vengeance pinning us down for the night. Lightning nailed nearby summits, rock pummeled down and wind and rain made for an interesting night huddled near a cliff.

Climbed 2x

Climbed this in 02 (on the way to Walton) & 06 (on the aborted way to Walton) during a white out. We bailed when we reached this point and did not descend to the Harrison Glacier

Attempt on Walton  Sucess!

Hiked to saddle at 7853 and downclimbed to below Harrison Glacier before giving up on a day hike to Walton due to tremendous crevasses at foot of glacier and lack of gear

Must Have Been Heaven  Sucess!

I never planned to be up there, but my brother and I got separated (my fault), and I had to look for him. My searching took me up to the Divide. I found my brother (later), and I found indescribable beauty, too.
