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: 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.
