On the descent I botched the route finding while trying to use my nearly dead headlamp. Ended up trying to rappel but found myself dangling in space at the end of the ropes and had to prussik back up, all off one hammered in wire.

That's alpine climbing in a nutshell. I bet hammering in that nut increased it's pull out strength by at least 50lbs:-) Keep'em coming!

Holy cow. Rad thread. Cool to see Mark Westman comment. The exposure in those photos gives me a belly ache.

Havening recently moved to the Canadian Rockies, to me this is one of the most inspiring (road-side!!) walls around! Tall, steep and imposing!

On my commute to work I had the pleasure of watching the sun rise over Mt. Chephren and Howse Peak in the background. On Mt. Chephren, the illuminated rib in the centre of the face is the Gran Route. On Howse Peak, the illuminated ridge is the North East Ridge (V 5.9).
