It would be great to see a write up or commentary on this, what were you impressions. Any really interesting sections? Thanks for sharing.

Thanks for the comment rickinco123. There is a link to my narrative trip report above the video. I think this is what you are looking for. I guess it's a little hidden, so I can see how the link may be overlooked.

Nice work. I'm looking at doing it in summer 2012. I'd love to go independent, but am a little put off by the route-finding (never having even seen it in person) and can't seem to find anyone else who wants to go! Anyone interested?!?!
I did like seeing the report and video, though, very nice. When do the rest of the video segments come out?

Good luck next year; it will be an amazing experience. I'm certainly not against going guided, we simply felt like our team had enough experience and were trying to save money since it's relatively expensive. If you can find a competent partner and move fast, just follow the guides up and down the mountain. Sounds simple, but it works. All the videos are posted on a thread in the ”Mountain Tales” forum. Here you go. . .

That was fun to watch. Great job, and to do it unguided.
