Delano Peak is probably the roughest terrain of any of your videos that I have watched.  The lower part, about the creek crossing and for a bit after that, reminds me of mountain terrain down in Colorado.  The last part getting up to the ridges and over to summit looked pretty rough. Neat little snow bridge.

Thanks Stan :)
You bet, it was pretty knarly going along that ridge indeed ???....climbing the face was a trip, but getting back down proved to be the bigger challenge...i was so dang tired getting to the top, the hike down was a steep, bushy and often rocky bushwack...a few others proved to be more difficult, you'll see them in upcoming posts...thanks for looking Stan!

Very cool country.  Hard hike.  Thanks for taking us along.
