This photo was taken appraoching the end of my climb of Medicine Bow Peak on June 27, 2004. Note the ice still in the lake below! This monolitich structure I believe is part of the Medicine Bow group but not Medicine Bow Peak itself. It is I think called "The Diamond" and represents a climb similar to a technical route on Longs Peak in CO. The basin was soggy from snow melt and on top of that, clouds moved in and it started to hail!
