LeConte's NW chute. The waterfall pitch is located where the dark stained rock is visible in the center of the photo. Most climbers appear to go up the left side.

Summit of Mount LeConte. Snow/hail falling. As soon as I poked my head up I heard a funny buzzing sound. I knew immediately what it meant. Several seconds later a boom of thunder forced me to decend slightly.

As I pondered whether to climb back onto the summit, a second crack of lightening confirmed that it was time to go. Snow/hail was now falling at a faster rate.

As I feared, when I reached the waterfall pitch it was covered by snow and hail.
