Spearhead is it?

thanks fer askin' Bob.

-I get tight I.T. band issues and run of the mill patellar tendonitis as a result.

May have tweaked things a bit more than usual punching through some snow in the Sangres...

From the West side of Blue Lakes Pass,
You can view this geologic oddity,
A rock glacier.
Lookit' the processional folds.
Maybe Grug could comment...

Thanks for the ice mtn shots. I've been up the Conundrun Couloir but not down it. Montezuma Glacier should give you enough room to slow down unless it's iceberg lake.rg

Here's the 3 Apostles from the Approach.

Most books say to go up the NE ridge of Ice Mtn,
We were confused and headed up the West Ridge,
On climber's right; with just a bit of class 3 out of the Col:

I'm out for a 2-week scramble, kids. Boot up some more pictures and I'll catch this thing later.
