The view from the spacious belay atop the pillar, at mid-height on Epinephrine.  We were moving a little slow, and decided to bail from a couple pitches above the pillar, not too bad if you're careful and have 2 ropes.   After a couple short, easy pitches, you gain entrance to the chimney system.    Epinephrine ascends the shadowy chimneys in the center of the photo, along the right side of the large pillar, then follows weakness to the top of the wall.    Black Velvet Wall from the approach trail...gettin' close.   Sween sunrise from the trailhead to Black Velvet.
