A perfect bluebird day in the mountains!


Conditions are incredibly snowy this summer so far.


A pleasure to be out in weather like this.


We were in the company of other climbers, but there was plenty of room and time.


Passing crux number one.


Taking in the view.


The exposure increases!


Higher on the route, we take a snowy variant.


Approaching crux number two...


In the exit chimneys, snow and ice filled but very fun.


Setting up for the "summit" shot!


And there it is! What a great day on one of our favorite climbs.
