Bear Creek Spire - October 2008
What a weekend! ... adventurous and exhausting

* COLD...20°F overnight
* Tense, snow covered talus hopping
* Wet and slippery solo climbing
* Headaches and altitude fatigue at 13,720'

But who's complaining? ... a stunning autumn weekend in the high Sierras.

While Michael and I had planned on climbing the 5.8 North Arete, we ended up soloing the mid-5th NE Ridge due to time constraints.
