Sweet shot !

Just to the east of the Sawtooths?
That's really some beautiful country!

Re: Sweet shot !

Thanks Larry. Yep, not far from the Sawtooths. Both ranges are very beautiful.

excellent shot.

That's the best angle I've seen for wcp3. You descended the chute on the left-hand side, right? From this angle it looks almost un-doable.

Re: excellent shot.

Thanks very much. The chute was pretty steep, but not too bad for going down. There’s just enough scree to do some plunge stepping, but not quite enough to cover all of the stable rock underneath. I don’t think it would be the best way to get back up from Swimm, that’s for sure.
