My dad climbs off the north...

My dad climbs off the north end of The Sawtooth (September 7, 2002). Look at the relief in that smile! As you can see there is a good deal of exposure once you cross over from the east face to the west face. The exposure alone wouldn't have been that bad, but the last 200-yard stretch was really loose scree and dirt which afforded no reliable hand or foot holds. I have noted our route with a red line.

Nice shot.

This is a nice view of the Sawtooth. It's nice to view something new when viewing Evans and Bierstadt photos. 4 stars.
