The Independence Couloir on American's north face.
Looking up from the apron of Independence. This was a grungy climb on old snow.
Nearing the top of the 400 foot Indy couloir. The slope angle probably didn't get steeper than 35 degrees.
Looking down Independence, which was melted out on the top.
Remaining ridge run to bi-centennial American.
Looking down to Sloan Lake on American's west ridge.
Sunrise on the Grenadiers.
Looking down the steeper and narrower Traitor couloir on American.
Ridge run to centennial Jones.
This is the ridge I sidehilled to the left on the way to an attempt of Unnamed 13535.
Next up is Niagara.
The moon and Niagara's steep east ridge.
Bluebell flowers? These striking flowers were out in full force on Niagara. I've seen them growing in harsh environments above treeline.
Jones & Handies from Niagara.
Loose scree descent of Jones n.e. ridge.
Looking back at an annoying sidehill traverse across small talus and scree.
