Same as last report. Few downed trees on the trail (which CFI did a great job on), once into the boulder field there's 1-2 hard packed snow sections which require no extra gear. Easy climb to the summit once past the âœyellow dirtâ. Class 5 direct to the right of the big V, tried to stay true to ridge most of the time, and descended standard. I could see a helmet being useful on the crux during summer weekends. Very good route for someone's first class 3, not difficult at all. I parked below the 4wd TH (0.6mi) a friends explorer made it up, but minor damage. I saw a Mazda heading up so drive at your own discretion I suppose. Not worth the 15min walk for me

For the wonky pics, are you using an actual camera or a phone camera? Older digital cameras (usually) use Exif data to encode photo rotation, but a lot of newer digital cameras (i.e. phones) instead rotate the actual images into the proper orientation. If the site isn't using Exif data on upload to determine rotation (all Exif data is at least removed) and trusting the images to come in properly rotated, this could definitely explain the wonk. Your last image of the flowers is properly rotated, was that one captured using your phone's camera?


All my photos on the site have been used

Using my iPhone XS Max, I take the majority horizontal for a better FOV, but maybe uploading vertical as well messes things up? Idk itâs headache and Iâm technologically inclined just lazy IG

My condolences to you and our gracious admin for dealing with the woes of technology, had just dealt with an image rotation issue myself and was hopeful it could help T_T


Very cool
