The plan was to do the West Wind Pass hike.We missed the path at some point and decided to follow the Rimwall Route instead of doubling back.Made it as far as the ridge at 2,400 metres or so elevation but not the summit. Beautiful view of both sides from the top of the ridge! (Saturday, July 15)

Tiring but worth it. We started at 8.30AM. We missed the 4th cairn. So we decided to go straight up. Climbed the rock bands. We didn’t want to lose any elevation but we didn’t know which crack we have to attack. Finally we saw a route that leads to the top of the band. Man it was so tiring. We were so happy we made it. The route finding will be a challenge.
