Following are some photos from the Druthers Area at Pipestone Pass, Montana. This weekend, we estimate there were approximately 10 first ascents done, many of which were easy, but techy ‘n’ awesome–and a few of which were harder! (Photos of other/ non-Druthers climbs with Sarah, Jeff, Joe and Dervin to come soon…)
