Daniel Griffen documented the climb with his iPhone and shared his images. He did a great job of finding compositions that illustrate different sections of the climb. I think that the images I made and Daniel's compliment one another and give a better overall impression of climbing Diamond Peak. Also, it is not often that I get to see myself in action during a hike. I really appreciate these images...Kudos to Daniel.
The trip was near perfect...great company, fantastic weather, beautiful views, and enjoyable workout.

Love those trekking poles
