La Sal Linkup 4/8

No real write up for this one, but a cool little solo linkup of the three tallest peaks in the La Sals that I managed to sneak in on the way home after dropping Taryn off at her course.

A nice pre-dawn approach
Sunrise over Castle Valley
Looking towards Peale from Mt. Tuk
The technical crux of the day, a short section of 3rd/4th class on the way to Peale
Summit of Peale looking back at Mt. Tuk
On the way to Mt. Mellenthin looking back at Mt. Tuk
The line off Mt. Mellenthin taken from Mt. Tuk, a bit blind dropping in but reasonably straightforward
Part way down Mt. Mellenthin, navigating cliff bands
A beautiful, sloppy ski back to the car
