Looking Down the Couloir

Looking north from McHenrys Notch one sees Powell Peak's beautiful northeast ridge. In the background, the Mummy Range. Rocky Mountain National Park, Colorado. July 2006.

thanks

its good to know what it would have looked like if climbing was possible. geeze after the talus field and seeing the rocks flying down i was bummed especially after the approach. this shot makes up for all the fruitless hard work-almost!!

Re: thanks

Thanks! I'm glad you liked the picture. You made the right decision given the circumstances. The approach is rather long, but I don't mind it, because I like that area very much.

Re: thanks

Yeah I love the area as well, especially with Longs, The Spearhead, and the solitude up near the lake before the talus field. I climbed the whole approach in mountaineering boots to save weight, big mistake- I had the worst shin bleeding ever from the top of the boots rubbing. Definitely a great area but I still like the Mohawk Lakes and Mt Pacific area a little more.
