Southwest couloir route, center of photo:
From whence we came:
On top of Montana!
Hokay, I'm even more psyched to have summitted #49 - Granite Peak - yesterday, the hardest high point after Denali. Woo hoo!!! No time to post much right now--we're on our way to Yellowstone--but here's a report of the much less commonly used route we used. We had quite a bit more icy snow in the couloir so it was technically more challenging for us. Lots of really fun Class 4 and easy 5 rock scrambling and perfect weather conditions were a real treat. I am a very happy camper today. :)
