Indescribable is the only word. Standing up on the summit at sunrise, with the moon high in the sky and the sun just starting to wake, having only ourselves and the peaks high enough to pierce through the clouds for company. It felt like we were in another world disconnected from the one sleeping far below.



Ridiculously high resolution copy of the above pano here:

And Paul, I have to say, I hardly noticed the word "nudity" and just skimmed right past it to "Breakenridge"
I guess that makes me a bit of a mountain geek

Traverse Peak looks like a good destination, any guesstimates on how much more effort to get there? Same approach?

Nudity is a easy word to miss with with a member base of around 80% men I am guessing

I can tell you that we had a very good view of the route itself and it looks very doable with no major obstacles along the way.You do lose 200m on the route over, which isn't too bad I guess and then you need to ascend a gulley to the right side of the main peak on it's south side which you can see in my pics.

Very nice! I was actually considering going up there last weekend as well until I came down with a cold and spent the weekend napping.[|)]
Given the effort taken to get in that far it seems that going out to Traverse Peak would be a natural extension for a 2-3 dayer.

Some of the photos I took


1)Great start to the day. Ended up with a flat, which seriously delayed getting to the trail head. But no worries...Paul dealt with it "like a boss".
2)One of many creek crossings.
3)Macro shot...I love how the colors pop with the grey weather.
4)First real break of the day.

1)Paul on his way up the last gully.
2)Leigh on the same ascent with our first bit of sunshine of the day.
3)Leigh arriving on the col with the last few clouds of the day.
4)Lovely view of Traverse Peak rising from the clouds.

1)Everyone with camera in hand, couldn't believe the views we were getting.
2)Paul taking his turn digging out the tent pad.
3)Leigh and Paul on the summit.
4)Above the clouds on the summit.

1)Paul on the summit.
2)Trusty ice axe with the sunrise.
3)Leigh making his way back to camp.
4)Close up with traverse behind

I was waiting for the other pictures to be posted before commenting. Not disappointed - you guys got some great shots and grabbed a solid peak[8D].

Paul - things worked out real well[^].

Oh yeah, almost forgot. Paul stumbled across a deflated balloon and streamer and packed it out. What does he get? 10,000pts?
