North Face of Sky Pilot # 2195

Below is a description of the photograph you were looking for, and the circumstances surrounding the photo.
Date: 2000 Nov 11
Vantage Point: From the West Ridge

Caption: This photo shows the north face of Sky Pilot and the top of the Ledgelette.

PhotoDescr: I dragged a couple of beginner mountaineers on unfamiliar Sky Pilot. Almost turned into a disaster: no crampons, off route, and I was suppose to bring a two-man tent for two people in the group. We got on to the "West Ridge" or we thought we did...it turned into the West Face. Running out of time, we climbed onto a little bump on the "West Ridge" and had a fantastic view of the north side of Ledge and Sky Pilot Mountain and The Ledgelette.
