It was great climbing with everyone! Perfect weather, perfect snow conditions, and a great team made for an awesome climb. There should be a link at the top of the forum page for a photo gallery, or click here: My pictures are already uploaded. Got some great action shots coming up the Pearly! There are instructions at the top of the photo gallery for how to add your photos. Please upload them and share them with the rest of the team! I hope to have a trip report up by the end of the week. I look forward to climbing with you all again soon! Nathan
