Wow

What a freakin route photo. I did the gumby route from Solitude Lake and have wondered about this route. Now I know.

Is that a avy-safe route? Looks like some nice post holing, but hey, it sure would be a nice winter view.

Nice shot, where did you take it from? I could figure it out but I'm too lazy to whip up the TOPO.
