Beneath the slab pitch and the Great Gendarme as rain rolls in during our ascent of Mt. Stuart. We bivied for the night and were lucky enough to summit under clear skies the next day!  Me just above the start of "Sanbu/Three Step" with my friend Ming finishing up "Qibu/The Start."   Route 13 in the topo  Me at the start of "Three Step" with my friend Ming finishing up the final moves on "Sanbu/The Start." <br /> <br />"Three Step" moves straight up to the overhang with the right-leaning crack, while "The Start" follows a bolt line down and out of frame to the right of the photo.  Route 14 in the topo.
