Gorgeous photos! Bummer about your catalytic converter. Must have been a loud, long drive home!
Out of curiosity, what was your biggest deviation from the Volken route? I was up there the day before you, I believe, and ended up turning around shortly after gaining the ridge due to weather and vis (it was hot, no wind, and low clouds that made our party nervous about traversing on a steep slope). It was our first time up there so we didn’t have firsthand knowledge about what we were about to tackle.
Looking forward to getting back there! Looks beautiful!
