Cool pics of the Little Bear/Blanca ridge

Postby MtHurd » Tue Aug 28, 2007 5:00 am

This is almost cheating there are so many good pics. If you would rather be surprised, don't look. Hopefully this isn't a repeat post but I looked and couldn't find them posted anywhere else on 14ers.com.

Barry,
Fantastic trip on the Traverse. Great pictures. Since I've climbed these three and have seen your pictures, I don't have to go back and do this. :lol:

Nice Barry! Thanks for all the great pics. I'm tentatively planning the traverse for next year, so I'll definitely be looking at those again!

Congrats on a great climb!

I've done the ridge but this isn't my trip report. I was just pointing out because the pics are awesome.

Cool is hardly the word. You did an excellent job with the photos capturing the ridge.

Incredible! Far and away the best pics I have ever seen of the traverse.

Best TR ever! Those pics make me feel like I've already climbed it. Maybe next summer I'll give that one a try. Thanks for putting such a meaninful sequence of pics and description together.

Thanks for the very detailed TR. The pics and beta will come in VERY handy in 2 weeks when I leave Texas to try the same trip.

FYI, there's a broken pic for "Ben shows us that one must not be scared of 1000' drop-offs below to master Bivwacko Tower. Ben considered this move the most intense of the traverse..." (the first one--http://matt.tracz.org/2007/08_17/IMG_2851.JPG) and several at the very end.


Again, this is not my trip report. I just found it and thought it was cool.

Great trip report and pictures - thanks for sharing. I did notice some typos, can you fix those? He he... Just kidding - I actually read posts :wink:
