Loveland Pass

105 sec f/2.8 15mm ISO 400

I went up to Loveland Pass in the hopes of going for a stroll up to the top of Snikatu last night. However, the steady 70+ mph winds thwarted my attempt. It was difficult to just stand in that intensity. So, I went downslope on the southside and snagged the above photo in a steady 30 mph wind. The cold made my trigger release stiffen up.

The summit headwall

I turned around at the location of the last image, since I didn’t feel like skiing more rocks. I already crossed four sections along the ridge. Despite this I got two core shots in my skis on the descent. However, there were three amazing minor headwalls and a great ridge run going down!
