I know it's been said several times, but those pictures are stunning! The wide angle really gives a sense of height by including the lower surroundings. Fantastic! Do you have pictures of other climbs you'd be willing to share?

Wow! I could say more, but the word Wow seems to keep jumping to the forefront. Amazing TR. Wow!

Totally insane! You guys are animals. Great pics.

I must have read and reread this TR more than 15 times - the text and photos (those are not just photos - they are dazzingly perspectives) are by the best I have read/seen on this site. Thank you so much for posting them.

For anyone reading this thread, I'm the one that created the TR, and finally posted the complete TR over in the Trail/Conditions forum on Friday (took a long time to finish the 3-day web journal), so there's more discussion and some comments about Bivwacko I made there, if you're interested. There's also an Ellingwood TR tied in with the link posted there.

BTW, I've got more TRs and pictorial journals of hikes at:
http://matt.tracz.org/peaks/

I try to write detailed reports, sometimes mini-novels, for my family and friends who don't get a chance to experience the thrills on the trail. I'd recommend the Capital Peak, Snowmass, (both) Tetons, and Norway adventures, if you're interested. Lots of great pics at the least...
