"Why I love Rock Climbing"
Saturday morning, 4am, my cell phone alarm goes off, and I don't know why. For about 5 seconds. Then I remember, today is the big day: the Grand Traverse.
The Traverse. Parts where the red line disappears you traverse on the far side of the ridge. Photo credit: John Ross.
Summit of peak #1, Teewinot. The North Ridge of the Grand follows the right side of the face in the background.
These pictures are for my Mom. I hope you don't get too stressed out reading this.

Peak #4, Middle Teton. Note the building clouds, which would distract me from taking summit pic #5, South Teton, as I ran for cover.
