Ptarmigan Traverse, Hydramatic Spire

Hydramatic (high dramatic, not hydro-matic) Spire as seen from Dome Peak. The “Cannon Hole” cuts through the ridge where the snow extends up from the bottom center of the picture.

The Cannon Hole. Hydramatic is above and to the right, out of the picture.

Class 4 and easy Class 5 up to the ridge. The rock is solid and blocky, making for great climbing. Barb led this pitch.

Barb climbs to the airy point of the spire. Note that I left the sling around the top so she would have an upper belay.
