Majestic Pillar of Ice
Sisters Right, Cascade Pass, Climbers: Don Mellor, Mike Bauman
Looking at the climb from mid-air, this photo required our long boom to obtain this perspective. Setting up this contraption is a challenge in the summer but frigid winter temperatures make everything, especially anything that has to do with batteries, even more difficult in winter. That said, emphasizing Don’s dominant position at the top of the climb as it falls away toward earth would not otherwise be possible. Looking casual as always, Don completed the first ascent of this climb more than three decades prior to this photograph.
