Northeast Ridge

Haydar (left), my brother (passed out), and Shirley on summit of Black after our climb up NE Ridge. Great weather though slightly hazy views. Tower Mtn. is in far background on extreme left; Wine Spires and Silver Star Mtn. is in far background just left of Shirley (Aug. 19, 2006).

Re: cool summit

Hey Jim,
thanks man. It was fun even though I was cursing when we got up at 5 am (again) after having promised not to do this early start shit anymore this season :)

Re: cool summit

Yeah - I was curious about that car-to-car comment. What happened to the lazy approach and beer-drinking plan? Did Haydar talk you into doing something crazy on Sunday? :)

Re: cool summit

Oh yeah - we did some crazy stuff! Slept at same location as last time (thought we were going to get snagged for illegal camping but fortunately the ranger lady chose not to screw us over), got breakfast at same location as last time and headed home thru. same traffic shit as last time. Then Shirley cooked up some ribs and we ate like pigs!! Lotta beer too. :)

Nice

Looks good. How did you like the center knife edged section? Pretty fun, too bad the start is a bit loose.

Re: Nice

Thanks Martin!
Fun stuff despite the choss. It gets a bit more solid on the upper half and that narrow ridge section was sweet!! My brother was pretty impressed (this was his 1st alpine outing).
