Putrid Pete – Aerial Drone Footage

posted in: Climbing, Photography | 0

I took this aerial footage in September 2015 but finally got around to posting this online.  This was taken at Putrid Pete’s Peak (aka – “P3”), just outside the Alpine Lakes Wilderness.  The trail is steep, but very accessible from I-90.  It’s a relatively short hike at 3.4 miles one-way, but with some glute-firing altitude gain of 3,020 ft., topping out at 5,220 ft. elevation.  My buddy John scrambled the ridge as I operated the drone; I was able to find a small 3′ x 3′ spot to launch and land the drone in the steep, rocky area.  My favorite shot is at 0:52, where I was able to follow the ridge with the sun in front, creating a silhouette of the formation with Mt. Rainier in the background.

Shot with a GoPro Hero 4 Black mounted on a 3DR Solo drone.
