Kendall Catwalk (Attempt)

June 18, 2006. A warmup hike with Bryan and Srikanth for what was to come: snow, stream crossings, route finding, glissading, and more snow. We got within a half mile of the Catwalk, but decided it was a wee bit too dangerous to attempt without crampons and ice axes. Still, some good photos. Bryan took some of these. (~10 miles round trip, ~2500 ft. gain)
