Today’s Photo of the Day is “View From The Top” by David Connel. Location: Bear Creek Spire in California.
“Capturing this image requires a bit of work and a three- to four-day commitment,” explains Connel. “Pack your backpack with camping gear, technical climbing gear and ropes as well as recruit a climbing partner. In my case, it was my wife/outdoor model. The trail to the start of the climb is seven miles long. The ascent of Bear Creek Spire requires crossing a snow field, a lot of 4th-class technical climbing, and a few low 5th-class pitches. It’s a classic climb with an incredible view all the way to the horizon. From this vantage point, you can see the entire hike along the length of the lake-filled valley with mountains on either side.”
