going up and down too much is taxing, specially when you are solo and motivations comes only from you. Nice job finishing this beast of a route off. Looks like something worth checking out at some point. Thanks for the beta.

I was on the summit at about 9 AM via the standard route and I was searching the ridge for any climbers. Nice pictures, but they just do not do it justice. It must be even more dramatic looking when you are climbing it.

Helmut: I think this one's right up your alley.
Patinator: It's hard to see climbers on Ellingwood since we tend to stick on the East side. I did cross over to the West a couple times though, inspiring a few WTF moments.
Steph: I took one look at your post and began downloading some of that shit for myself .

Looks like a nice little dinner on top after a long and rewarding ridge run. Great work!
ps. I listened to Ace of Base while reading this. And I enjoyed every minute of it.
