Mt Watkins reflected in Mirror Lake, Yosemite

Looking back at Washington Column, North Dome and Basket Dome

The South Face of Watkins

The upper pitches - the top-out is just left of the roof

No fixed ropes this year...

Filling water bottles below the approach pitches

Comfortable bivy ledge below the wall

Dark clouds above the face

Light rain so we broke out the bivy sack while we ate dinner

Better weather for fixing the first 3 pitches the next day
