Thanks, John. It looks a bit friendlier on the summit top-out than when I was there last - in the dark and the rain!

Wow, some great shots in there - thanks for sharing.

Some could be made even better by cropping and auto-adjusting colors. Here's one I cropped (crtl-Y) and color-adjusted (shift-U) in IrfanView:


(but Photobucket reduced it to 800 x 600)

Others are already about perfect!

Super cool content, John. Just great stuff. Gotta love YV...where FWAs get done in t-shirts. Another great thread for the denizens to psyche on.

Looks like a bit more fixed gear in our photos. It was a bit colder than our previous winter run up the Cap, which was in Feb. It's all about the wind...

Bluering-yep, that's the Bipster himself!

One reason why so many miss him is that we can all remember the intensity of the guy. Either that or the fact that we were generally laughing a lot when he was around.
