Purcell Wilderness Wildness

Sunrise on Hall Peak, Block Tower and Wall Tower (L-R) from camp
The full story in my words will be coming soon, but Chris van Leuven at The Alpinist did a great writeup on my recent trip to the Leaning Towers in the Purcell Wilderness Conservancy with Kate Rutherford. Link to it here. It was one of the best (and burliest) alpine climbing trips I've done. We did two first ascents, one on Block Tower, one on Wall Tower and repeated an established route on Wall Tower. For now, just a few snaps of the trip. Stay tuned for more.
