Very nice aerial photos. I have thought many times about trying to get some recon photos of several remote areas from the air. Thanks for sharing.

very cool, always wondered what that canyon/wall looked like from the air.

This would be a great shot to show the descent from BV Peak.

Looks sort of dinky from this angle. Pretty funny considering the "lump in the throat" feeling you get standing at the bottom and looking up. What a wondrous wall!

Tane's comment x 2.

Definitely shows you why you don't want to go down that first gully!

Someone wrote beta that uses clock positions to describe how to find the next peak on the ridge, starting facing Vegas and it is spot on.
