Traffic on the Homestretch

The way up was packed, but fortunately the crowds had cleared out by the time we left the summit.

Interesting angle

It looks like the people are walking up a vertical face. Great shot!

Re: Interesting angle

Thanks. The Homestretch is pretty steep, but this shot was all about getting low to the rock and looking up.

This picture, and the descending climber on the right, reminds me of a quote from William Allen White ... after his ascent of Longs Peak he wrote, "You go up on all fours and you come down on all fives."

Re: That's

It's really sweet! The exposure over the East Face is pretty stunning. Definitely head up Longs if you get the chance.

Re: That's

After looking at this photo, my head is definitely up, and very long... :)

I'll take that as a compliment, I think. :D
