    Wow, what a fantastic picture! If that was your summit day you were indeed fortunate.

    I think what you see in many rescue-related posts is an attempt to understand what was going on and how a better outcome might have been reached.

    Now a Live Stream from Wildcat

    This stream is pretty cool. Watch it for a few seconds and you'll see that the view changes from wide-angle Mt Wash to telephoto close ups of the summit, the ravine headwalls and Lions Head.
