Looking northwest towards Browns Pass and the Continental Divide. A southwestern view towards Gladstone Ridge. The last pitch to the saddle was the hardest. Here is the slope we ascended.

A storm was brewing towards the west near the Continental Divide. Once I reached the saddle, I took a picture of Mt. Columbia (Elev. 14,073 ft.). The storm was starting to close in, so we decided to hurry it up.
