Floating Rock and Galleon Mountain

The steep, damp duff on the way up Floating Rock and the steep, solid snow (and no crampons) on Galleon Mountain both made this trip a bit more difficult than I had hoped.

I scrambled Galleon on the ascent, but on the descent I did one rappel with a 30 meter rope. I was unable to pull my rope and didn't want to spend the extra time to scramble back up and retrieve it. So if you find a rope up there, now you know where it came from!
