Freeclimbed solo from Treasure Lakes with the aid of rock shoes at the summit wall/block.
Clear, no wind, views were fantastic.

Quick sidetrip via the Ulrichs Route as I made my way towards Mount Julius Caesar.

First trip June 16, 2011 as a solo dayhike from Mosquito Flat. Lots of snow (snow from 11,500 feet) but didn't need crampons, which was nice because I decided to leave them in the car. Enjoyed the headwall, wished it was a bit longer. Over to Pipsqueak Spire afterwards.

cabUlrich's Route  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 22, 2012


The end of a traverse from Mt. Dade and Pipsqueak Spire. We actually threw a rope over the summit block and belayed from the other side. I wouldn't trust the rope to actually stay on top of the summit block on a hard fall, but it gave us some sense of security - probably not warranted. Great day with Mark and Pat.

C2C with the Gazelle. Long day with excellent conditions. Only party on the climb, although we did get passed by a soloist. Crux 5th pitch is only 5.8 (or possibly harder) if you climb it as an OW. The alternative, left side hand crack and stem, is pretty low key. Found the ridge (past ST P5) long and harder than 4th. Walked out under moonlight.

What a nice route! Lots of fun stemming up remarkable "fins" of good granite. Though the last couple hours involved nearby lightning and occasional snow blizzards, the snow piling up on the hand and footholds.

Date Climbed: Sep 24, 2011


Did with SMG, surprised ourselves by everyone soloing the route...it really is only 4th class and the holds are everywhere. Lots of fun, and a great mountain not that far from the trailhead. Had a nice two hour snowstorm with lightning descend upon us on the way down. North Arete is next on the list!

Did it car to car after a long drive from the bay area, with a good friend. Fun route, the crux (5.10 dihedral variation) was not as hard as I expected, great pro all the way up the route. Rock quality amazing pretty much everywhere. Too bad it only has 3 real pitches of climbing. Would do it again some day..

A very satisfying and very physical climb. I loved everybit of it, with the exception of the loose a$$ descent.

Awesome route! Camped at Dade Lake. Belayed first two pitches, the offwidth, the tunnel through pitch, and the arete pitch above that. Simuled everything else (probably should have simuled the latter two pitches as well). Base of route to summit in 5 hrs. Descent down from the col was icy sketch since we didn't bring ice axes or crampons and the sun had gone down behind the ridge.

Date Climbed: Jul 16, 2011


Attempted the NE ridge, got off route and ended up on the arete, I think, with only 5 nuts and a rope. Had to do some crazy moves with no room for error. Finally got to a place to down climb and then back up to the ridge. My partners found the rap down and I had to down climb the northeast face doing stupid stuff that would of caused me serious death had I fallen but got off okay. VERY long day.
