Edward leading the first pitch of the headwall. Note the other climber to the left. Another team later climbed in parallel to the right, so there are many ways to go here!
Looking back at the start of the simul-clim

Looking ahead to fun times!
Me climbing a fin unnecessarily.
Bradley & Stefan on the ridge. They were a separate party that we kept running into on the ridge.

The Fin. Definitely the highlight of the traverse.
Me climbing the Fin. I don't think the rope will help me much here . . .
Climbing the Fin. Supertopo says to go left of the ridge here, but that's stupid :-P
Eddy belaying on the crest.
Talk about a panoramic view!
Is this knife-edged enough?
Ed on the rock playground
Echo Peaks & Matthes Crest dotted with climbers. One is on the summit of Matthes Crest.
Climbers close and on the N summit.
At the notch after the 5.2 downclimb, just before the crux 5.7 pitch to gain the N summit.
The 5.7 crux pitch. It sure felt harder to me!
