    A bit overdue, but I've found myself with some spare time.

    Wow, tough conditions! Glad you made it through okay. Lucky you found a good enough spot to pitch the tent dropping down into the Great Gulf. There's not a lot of flat terrain around there!

    All in all it was a great trip. On my site there is a link to the pics of a solo traverse I did this February. I'll put that TR, and some others I've been slacking on, up soon I wound up camping in the same spot, I'm sure of it. My brother, remembering the cold, had no plans to go further than Adams. It was a shame, the conditions were near perfect.

    Great TR and pics. I can understand the lack of pics from day 2 with the conditions. Glad you made it through OK. Definitely a trip to remember!
