On the "L" Shaped Glacier, Mt. Sill, Sierra Nevada Mountains, California

This was my second trip to Mt. Sill in a week, after an absence of perhaps three decades. The previous week, some old friends and I had failed to make the summit, because we didn't have the proper equipment.

Returning alone, I met three climbers near the top of the mountain, and we became instant friends. Here, after our successful ascent, Javier carefully makes his way down a steep and icy glacier on the east side of the mountain, roped to the rest of us for safety.

More photographs of the trip are in my "Mt. Sill" gallery.
