Who can't do everything he used to and what he can do takes a hell of a lot longer!

I have been up many of those passes, but one side only, as part of climbs. I am not sure if would be wanted, or even helpful, to describe half a pass. What do you think?

I'd say some information is better than none so would vote yes on this. You can opt to not describe the route not traveled, note that you did not travel it, and/or describe what you observed from the perspective(s) you had.

Perfect. Thanks! Added a reply with what I recall of the pass. Wish my memory were better and I took more notes/photo

Hi Greg,
I've added a few more listed off-trail passes (Bighorn, Lucifer's 1 and 2, and Mosquito) and as Eric pointed out to me, Contact Pass had already been covered, so he merged my shots with ones AlpineMike had contributed. I'm still going through some old photo collections, so I may be able to annotate a few more. One question: I put up descriptions of several ridge routes that are "unofficial". Do you want to list them as such, and are they worth identifying with the red icon designating an off-trail pass?
Best,
Cameron
