Upper Palisade Lake to Lower Barrett Lake
Cirque Pass * Knapsack Pass * Palisade Basin
Camera still broken. 🙁
Snow made routes that should be straight forward really really difficult. Today was all of that and more.
Knapsack Pass was particularly dangerous with class 3 and 4 climbing, lots of exposure, and loose rock. It was way over the difficulty that the High Route should be due to early season hiking.
I was nervous and freaked out many times for my hiking friends.
