    What a good looking mountain. I just finished Into Thin Air last night and have the climbing fever right now, just wish my budget agreed with it.

    It beats me how you were able to take this picture showing more shades of brown, orange and yellow than the most beautiful indian summer, when rocks and snow are supposed to be plain black and white…

    @Jeff, it started for me with the same book, 3 years ago. Accept the fever and have fun with climbing, even when your budget is low, you can climb. If the fever is strong enough you need to climb and create the budget to do that.
    Harry, great shot even to know you are there right now ;-). Have fun.
