Chimney Rock Just Before Sunset

This was an interesting climb. Perhaps 2 or 3 teams make it to this summit each year, although it is a very desirable peak and close to Seattle. It is a technical climb and we ended up short on time. After bagging the summit and dropping a few hundred feet to join our other team of 2 climbers. When we regrouped, I asked to pull out the headlamps so we could get off the face. They mentioned to me that the headlamps all were around the corner near the base of the climb! I was ready to get them myself, however the dynamics of that situation required me to hang out on a ledge waiting for the sunrise. I was the last one off the ledge and shaking badly from the cold of the night. It was great to move again in the morning and even greater to have the sun warmth.
