    It's 2000 ft pretty much straight up with few switch backs. It was... heavy. My daughter took the camera+tripod (~5 lbs) on the way down as my knees were hurting as they do on long hike downhills..

    oh of course I have other photos. Will scan them when I am done with all these works...

    I'd sure like to see them...thinking about going on some type of hike myself...although not with a 4x5, but a Autographic 3A special.

    Congratulations!

    I like the image very much, remembers me my stay in the SF Bay area 26 years ago, at that time I only carried a Rolleiflex TLR!

    2000 feet of climb, that's something!

    Now you are ready to plan the same climb with a 12x20" or a 20x25" camera
    see this video recorded in the French Alps near Annecy

    In the same spirit, climbing with a 4x5", see this press article about a recent book on alpine glaciers photographed with a 4x5"

    My goal is actually to see how feasible it it to carry a 4x5 gear traveling, think Hong Kong and China etc. So I don't expect to do long hike, but perhaps long walk ;-)
