Does anyone have some photos to add here from the summit? or a video..?
Last time here (Sept. 2009), I had NO rope and wanted to climb to the top by myself as well...if I had to climb this route with my small Sony Handycam...the hand strap would be held with my teeth...!!not a good idea...so I bailed out just before I got to the top!!
Back in "the day", Albert Ellingwood did it around 1925, and this was the hardest climb in Colorado. Agnes Ville did it as well...(later died coming down Long's Peak, RMNP).
