Good view of the final, spectacular arĂȘte of Full Circle. Taken from the "grand traverse" ledge.  Photo topo of the route with belay stations and descent rap tree marked.   Chains at upper right of block for maximum leverage. Yikes!  About to embark on the trip that resulted in the first ascent. From left to right: Joanna McComb, Dan Jones, Matts Myrhman. Photo courtesy of Ben Fairbank.  Shot of the first ascent, courtesy of Ben Fairbank (who came along to support the team). There's a little bit less vegetation these days.
