Did the recent warm up get you down? Did you think about rock climbing? Did you… actually rock climb? Once I get in my first ice of the season, there’s no turning back! And no small rise in temperature is going to stop this alpine train!
It was high noon on Mt. Lafayette’s Escadrille route by the time I finished the long approach. The sun was baking everything, including me!, but the ice was still hanging in! It’s a beautiful alpine route that leads directly to the summit.
An excellent mini-guide to the high routes on Mt. Lafayette and Mt. Lincoln can be found here:
Enjoy the ride and these photos!
