Clyde Minaret | Sierra Nevada

I just got back from guiding in the Sierra for SMG. Had the most amazing trip climbing the Southeast face of Clyde Minaret with Page. 13 miles skiing in, 13 pitches up, 13 miles skiing back out. A very rare treat. Page is also a rare person. She is the most motivated, experienced and just happy-GO-climber. Even with the heavy packs [crampons, boots, ice axe, water…] she did awesome and was super psyched on the direct start.
