South Early Winter Spire, North CascadesSummer 2003
Kevin, Dan, Cary, Matt (Gladfelter), and I climbed the South Early Winter Spire in the year 2003.
|A view of the spires from near the trailhead (I think).|
|We had company as we worked to set up our climbing gear at the base of the first pitch.|
|Some of the crew|
|Traversing the knife-ridge. That's some serious exposure!|
Me and Cary on the summit.
|At the time, I obviously had no idea how that damn bicycle helmet would be immortalized on this website.|
|Some alpine contemplation.|
|Looking back on the way out, we caught some alpenglow on the spires.|
