Classic Rocky's limestone

Everyone should get in some of this fun!   One of Temple's classics.

The author's write up is worth a look as well.

Actually in the grand sheme of things the North face of Temple has some decent limestone compared to else where in the Range.

But for most it is an acquired taste no doubt :) Love seeing the amount of rock fall inbedded on the ice fields.

you can definitely see where the eiger of north america tag came from - the ice fields look like bomb zones.
