Comments: Last time I headed over Glen Pass (1996) I asked the Backcountry Ranger (Lo Lyness) at Charlotte Lake if there was a shortcut to Glen Pass and she said no - my old Starr's Guide said otherwise.

Comments: Anchor using the three glue-in bolts, they're close to the edge, you can set up a three medium cam anchor in a crack at the back, secure a static line, tie in to it and then walk with confidence to the edge to set up the anchor. This can also be used to back up (!) the bolt anchor, plus it you rig it correctly you can use it to hold on to until you're over the edge for the rappel.

Comments: Did not know that the Iguana finish is no more - I remember it being much more doable than the Scurf finish.

One of my best days at Stoney was top-roping all three from left to right.
