Summit of Temple at dusk. Whipping winds, bright stars, and the silhouette of the Palisades against the last burn of sunset made this particular top-out an unforgettable one.

Oh God, so true, memory still painfully clear. Hours spent on steep, loose sand with perched blocks all around us... Contact can be a nightmare if you don't know where to thread the needle and you can't see, as was the case for us after this pic.
