Here's a video showing the route through the E-Ledges. That area was my biggest concern on that "trail". I combined video from three different trips

Nice. I like the 5:15-5:30 section, and @6:24 wink

This should be a sticky - possibly include other cruxes, too.

And Bea makes me think of George in "Eiger Sanction".

That was pretty good. Now all we need is a video showing how to find your way down in the dark with a headlamp. laugh

Frank, so you're saying the impacted log is no longer there? It was in place last July. Did it wash away this spring? Maybe I'm misunderstanding your caption.

Also, has anyone else noticed the monster tree hung up on the opposite canyon wall? It's visible as you're approaching LBSL, and is obviously very old. The thing is, it's easily twice, if not three times, as large as the biggest living tree you see in the area. Just kinda weird.

Gary, the log is gone. didn't look carefully at the picture above wink

Here's another. Various people with the all right equipment happened to meet at that point, all at the same time.

Guess I should have read the entire thread. I was going to ask when this happened, but by catching up on other threads I see it took place this month.

glad to see the log gone. That was the most difficult part for me when I was going up one April with a rather heavy pack.
