My climbing buddy and I climbed Pigeon Spire in Bugaboo Provincial Park, in British Columbia, Canada. I debated about bringing my DSLR camera, not wanting to haul the extra weight up the peak. Since I did bring the camera with me, I spent the whole climb looking for that unique perspective to capture the drama of climbing and the rugged beauty of the mountains. When we got to a saddle, I knew immediately that this was the image I wanted. If you look very closely, you can see my climbing buddy in a red jacket on the ridge. His presence captures the scale and magnitude of this climb, since this is only a portion of the climb required to reach the summit.
