Mark, online version will be available in a couple months, I believe, but I can now post the photo.


The fellow up top is Chris Alstrin, he's the videographer who rapped in for the shoot. Josh Wharton is seen at the belay with his partner, having just completed the crux pitch which he feels is in the 5.13- range. There were five more pitches of 5.12, some of it wet with ice-melt. What a monumental accomplishment. The route was first put up forty years ago by Jimmie Dunn and the late Billy Westbay. Jimmie is one of Josh's heros - when he learned the line went free, he called Josh to congratulate him. Very cool.

Each one of us who snaps a picture thinks he is a photographer. Your images demonstrate to us the difference between our "snapshots" as amateurs and real photographs, such as yours, by an artist. Way to go.
