View to the north, including Mt Julius Caesar, our climb from a couple of days ago.
Gordon on the summit block
View towards Humphreys Basin and the evolution peaks.
Me on the summit.
I put the camera away for the descent from the summit to the saddle so no pics of that - needed my hands too much. This is the view back towards the summit from the saddle.
And back down the chute now. Vee Lake looks like a 'V' from here for sure!
We're doing some hard work to keep from falling on our butts in this stuff.
But eventually we get back to the snow. Getting down is fun - sit down and slide. Wheee!!
Heading down the snow, boot skiing. Way fun and fast.
We stopped at a nice waterfall fed by the snow melt from right above. Brrrr.
Almost back to the lower of the Seven Gables lakes.
Back in the canyon below Vee Lake
Climbing back up to Vee Lake.
One last look back at Seven Gables as we head back to camp.

Sunset on Feather Peak, we're finally back at camp and exhausted after a great day.
That's the glow of the moon rising behind Feather Peak
