Revenge on the Santanoni Range

On 7 March 2009 a team from successfully summited all 3 peaks of the Santanoni Range after a failed attempt in June 2008. The night prior to the hike was spent at a pet-friendly motel in Long Lake and our 15-hour day began at 0645. A full climbing log of our trip up Santanoni Peak, Couchsachraga, and Panther Peak is available in an earlier post. A quite thorough video documentary of our winter hike of the Santanonis was recorded (see below); missing from the footage is topping out on Panther and our descent on snowshoes and skis--in the dark. Weather changed drastically during the period of no video footage, from bright sunshine to snow to rain.
