The Complete Pickets Traverse

Here is Jen Holstens account of the most recent effort to enchain the entire summit ridges of the Pickets Range in Northern Washington State.

 

Here is Chads write-up.

I dont have much to say right now except for WOW!  To do all of that in cold and stormy conditions is just amazing.  While they were on the traverse, I would look out my window at the clouds and wonder just how bad it was up there.  Yes we had 1 day of the 6 in the Northern Pickets in which it did not rain or ice pellet, but it wasn’t that bad until the end. A 30 hours storm made the trip over Challenger and the hike out a miserable affair.

I will write more about this stupendous trip soon, Check back, Thanks, and honored to be friends with these 2 climbers!
