looks awesome. I can't say I've ever been to the Picket Range but I would love to. Definatly looks impressive!
Wow, good report that brings back memories. What really strikes me is the change in the glaciers in your pics, from what I recall from a climbing trip in there in 1968. I'd say the glaciers have been reduced by about half. And from your rockfall story, we can tell it hasn't helped climbing conditions. Thanks for sharing this adventure with us!
