Great fun. Up the east arete. One of the best views in the Sierra. Want to go back for a winter climb.

...Cannot describe how miserable the approach was. Sugar snow over endless boulder/talus fields.

Only to find a death smattering of frozen confection covering the first pitch. Damn you, shoulder season- bane of my existence.

Simul-climbed the whole route following Mark Thomas. The weather was blustery the previous day and night but fortunately it started to calm down by mid-morning. Very pleasurable climb on a gorgeous peak. And finally climbed the summit block too.

High winds left me and Gordon Ye uncertain about climbing the route, but luckily the winds had eased off by the time we started the route. A great climb, and next time I'll be back for the North Ridge.

Climbed with Sean-a little exposed for my taste level back then, but would be trivial now. Memorable peak and cool summit ridge-started hailing on us, so we bailed off the other side of the mountain with some 4th class downclimbing.

I've been wanting to climb BCS ever since I first set eyes on it. Fortunately objectives aligned, and rhyang and I had a fantastic Friday the 13th climb up a beautiful feature. Great climbing, spectacular ridge run, and a great setting.

We wanted to do the North Arete again, but woke at 5:30am and thought it was too late of a start to do the climb as a party of 3. We decided to take the NE Ridge instead and ended up at the summit around noon. Since we had plenty of time to spare, we traversed the ridge to Pipsqueak Spire and Dade (4pm) and was back at the car at dusk. We took our time and were little slow, but not bad for being sick!

Spectacular views, and there was onyl one other party on the mountain. Got a late start on the day-climb, so we descended in the dark.

mthomasFirst Winter Ascent of Northeast Ridge with Doug Robinson  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jan 10, 2003


Doug and I climbed this route in January 2003, but the exact date is approximate. We approached the mountain on skis, one day for the approach, one day for the climb, and one day for the descent. This was my first real climb. Spectacular memories!

Date Climbed: Jul 10, 2001


But someone was killed by rockfall in the Hourglass the day before. I had no helmet. Advised by trail builders to take the Cox col and go 'round the back of the crest. At the crest I decided to go for the Spire. Lost it on a hard snow slope coming down from the col and slid down 30 ft. to a rock outcrop. Was going to climb University Peak the next day but the fall sent me to the White Mtns. to hike an easy 12 thousander near the road.
