    It was a tough drive up a 4x4 road in my little old Subaru Outback, but I made it for some nice morning light (missed sunrise). I did another 5 mile hike hoping to get some other views, but trees got in the way. This is one of my favorite mountains in WA. The north face, in profile here, was the first grade VI (many days on the face) climb done in the state. I always wanted to climb it, but never got up it (except by the trail on the backside).

    Wow, this is really cool Jim. Love all the detail, and contrast the snow provides. That would be a pretty crazy climb up that face.

    I've always liked that mountain for some reason. Never been there, but one of these days....
    Nice photo! The detail is incredible. I can see every hand hold on that route. LOL

    Thanks for all the comments guys. I shot this with a Sony A7rII and Sony 100-400mm tripod mounted using a remote trigger. Bill, the standard approach to view the north face is the easy trail to Barclay lake, which makes for a very pleasant half day jaunt suitable for children and non-hiker types.

    Very nice tonal range in this B&W, Jim. This looks like a formidable climb.
