I took this photo because Fox is such an iconic mountain - a great many people have seen it and enjoyed its splendor while hiking up to Elk Pass, over to Upper Elk Lake, or even up to Frozen Lake. Fewer have ascended it, although it is one of the classic scramble peaks that serves as a delightful introduction to moderate level climbing in the Rockies.

This is the route (with some significant variations) that I followed with my good friend Timothy Drescher from California when we ascended Fox more than twentyfive years ago.
