Lots of snow lingered in 2011. My daughter and I were halted at Panhandle Gap at 11 PM due to frozen snow and no appreciable boot track, necessitating an unplanned bivy. This was the first time in over 25 years that I couldn't cross the Gap in running shoes and trekking poles. The next morning I scouted out a bypass so we could proceed without crossing the Panhandle Gap proper. This video covers not only a real time scout of the bypass, doable by anyone with very basic scrambling skills, but is loaded with lots of info on the Gap. Take the fear and mystery out of the Gap, watch this and don't forget the tip jar! Another product released from the pay ranks.
