Getting up on the ridge to start.
Still working up towards some trees, across a open meadow laden with dew for wet shoes.
Looking back at the completely full Arrowrock Reservoir.
Randy makes steady progress on the climb.
Ulli and Mike work the steep.

Near the end of balsamroot bloom.
Pausing on a saddle for a moment.
We break into the trees as we approach the intersection of two ridgelines.
Last steep ascent amidst larkspur in bloom.
Finding each false summit to Heinen.
Nearly there, with a little snow left in the background.
Summit pan to the west and north.
