Elkhorn Group Climb, 2000

1) Climbing the main gully after ascending the first pitch. Some roped protection was used, but this part of the climb joins the class 4 route described elsewhere, after the rocky rib visible on the righthand side of the picture.

2) Elkhorn Summit. From left to right: Michael Patrick Lowden, Sarah Parker, Geoffrey Schmidt, David Parker, Mel Frost, Laura Parker, HJ Schmidt, Emily Schmidt, Matthew Parker, Susan Scheerbeck. Harney Peak is visible just over Sarah's head. This is probably the maximum amount of people ever atop Elkhorn, at least with documented proof.
