Looking back up the spine of the ridge is the prow of The Fin.
Under The Fin, we start our climb up to the ridge from which it protrudes.
All packed up again, and for the final time as we start our huge push to hike out.
Sunset or sunrise, The Fin is impressive. Amazingly, it just happened it was the time of year when the sun rose between a gap on Glacier Ridge to the east and acted as a spotlight to illuminate just The Fin.
And suddenly, the sun is gone. The sky goes blood red, then black and a myriad of stars sparkle to life as we call it a night and rest up for our last day on the Sierra High Route.
The sun really did roll down the back side of The Fin.

Once we clear the narrow chute, the snow field opens up and we can glissade down toward Camp V.
