First sight of the summit. Uh oh. Is that ice on the summit pinnacle?
North and Middle Sister (left), Mount Washington (center), and Three Fingered Jack (right)
The "death traverse". This was surprisingly icy.
Steep enough ... but it got even steeper around the north side of the pinnacle
Very steep here! This is where we climbed up on the north side of the pinnacle.
The only thing we roped up for was to get over this rock. A slip on either side was fatal so we decided to do a short class 5 move to go straight over it.
Fresh surface sloughing on the east side of the mountain. Time to go!
Looking back at Mount Jefferson from the PCT trail junction
Back at the trailhead. 6:37pm. Matthew and Bob were waiting for me.
