Here's some more mid summer pics and stoke from a weekend of climbing in the Alpine Lakes Wilderness of Washington. Zak, Chris, and I left Seattle early for the drive, and hiked over Ingalls Pass to campsites south of the lake. After making camp, we climbed S. Ridge of Ingalls North Peak, rapped the route, and returned to camp. Sunday tried to climb West Ridge of Mt Stuart, got slightly off route in the cloud bank shrouding the mountain, turned around about 3:30pm, descended a gully on the south face (4 raps and a lot of downclimbing), retrieved our gear, and hiked out in the dark with 6 other climbers. Pictures . . .

Ingalls Peaks and the low clouds that persisted all weekend:

Bell Helicopter checking out a fire on Jack Ridge that started on Friday. Pilot seemed pretty gutsy to me to fly through the valleys below the low clouds. He's crossing Stuart Pass here:
