In the midst of the first cold snap of the fall season in the Sierra we returned to the East Ridge of Mt. Russell. Temperatures got so cold at higher elevations it left frost on the route. The weather remained clear and the route was enjoyable even with the frost providing an added difficulty with finding solid foot and hand holds.
Here are a couple photos of the trip. The entire photo gallery is here: http://kurtwedbergphotography.com/Sierra-Trips/2009-Sierra-Trips/Mt-Russell-East-Ridge-Oct-2009/9898120_JhPrj/1/674512393_nVPJR
