Time to catch a breath after getting past the Narrows. Note the veer glass ice, dark band to the left. The sun still hadn't melted it off.

Saludos Redi, Por lo tanto, muchos de los comentarios sobre la primera foto. Me ha publicado el resto de mostrar lo que los niños hicieron. Hay partes duras. Hay lugares para reflexionar. Un gran logro. Los niños hicieron buena. Gracias por visitarnos.

Saludos,

Rich

Greetings Vasco, Thanks for visiting the resting point on the Narrows and your comments. Glad it brought back feeling from the old days. I wanted to show a little more of the finish to Longs Peak after all the comments the crux photo brought. A wonderful climb with variety and exposure.

Cheers,

Rich

Greetings Billy, Thanks for visiting the Narrows and your wonderful comments. It may be a little hard to tell, but there is a huge drop off to the left of the kids. The Narrows stretch has the most exposure of any part of the climb. A step off into space is a fast trip to Wild Basin below. But everyone usually does fine, or they turn around when they see the Narrows.

Cheers,

Rich

Greetings KC, Thanks for visiting the new Narrows photograph and your wonderful comments. Longs Peak showed us a kinder, gentler side on our third summit try, successful this time. The scenery was fabulous all the way up.

Cheers,

Rich
