West Face of Mount Aye II # 9810

Below is a description of the photograph you were looking for, and the circumstances surrounding the photo.
Date: 1999.09.12
Vantage Point: From the SE slopes of The Marshall

Caption: The extraordinary cliffs of the west face of Mount Aye

PhotoDescr: In mid-September of 1999, a group of Old Goats hiked in to Assiniboine Lake, where we camped for the night. The next day we made a valiant attempt on the Marshall from the SE slopes above the lake - lots of ball-bearing pebbles on slanted slab, mixed scrambling, and circuitous route-finding. Late in the day we bailed, having to rappel a couple of times to get over cliffbands.

See Aye for the narrative of several assaults on Mount Aye.

See Marshall for successive attempts on The Marshall.
