Description

Capturing this image requires a bit of work and a three to four-day commitment. Pack your backpack with camping gear, technical climbing gear, and ropes as well as recruit a climbing partner. In my case, it was my wife / outdoor model. The trail to the start of the climb is 7 miles long. The ascent of Bear Creek Spire requires crossing a snow field, a lot of 4th class technical climbing, and a few low 5th class pitches. It is a classic climb with an incredible view all the way to the horizon. From this vantage point, you can see the entire hike along the length of the lake-filled valley with mountains on either side.
