We started climbing from Lower South Colony Lake at 2:30 in the morning, making our way over Broken Hand Pass in the dark. After the pass, we turned left and ascended to the 13,573ft summit of Broken Hand Peak. We waited there for sunrise, before climbing the Crestone Needle (14,197ft). The Crestone Needle is shown in this photo, lit by sunrise.
