On the traverse. Strangely enough we'd find ourselves lost at this very spot later in the day.
Darija on the Iron-Baldy ridge traverse. I like this shot!
We'll avoid most of this buckthorn by staying left
Gunsight Notch. 5:00pm. Now dark we must now tackle the tricky part of the ridge on the way back to Iron Mountain.
Photography useless at this point -- too much vapor in the air
Cold, cloudy, and windy. Trees were frosting up. This is basically what visibility was like with headlamps.
After being confused for an hour or so on the ridge we finally found our way back up to Iron Mountain. 7:45pm.
Back at Heaton Flat parking lot. 12:00am. Roundtrip time: 18 hrs 55 mins.
