Climbed this route with Jeff Bance during our week in the Sierras. We went up and camped at Dade Lake the night before the climb, which I hoped would allow Jeff to acclimatize a bit more. Unfortunately, he felt ill all night and suffered through the entire climb...I ended up leading every pitch. The climbing was excellent, three great pitches of 5.7-5.8 and lots of exposed climbing on the crest. We climbed the route in about 5.5 hours, descended back to Dade Lake, and hiked out the same day.

Really fun climb. The icy part of the descent was a little hairball.

ctc. Was a bit disappointed. All the good climbing seemed to come in the last 400 feet or so (along the ridge line), which is after the NE Ridge and North Arete merge. Next time I will climb the North Arete route.

A beautiful day and climb. Sort of busy given that it was a Sunday, but none the less a great time! I'd like to come back and do the NE ridge as well. Did not climb the summit block as we we're in a hurry and there was two other parties waiting to climb it and take some photos - next time I guess!

Soloed; 10 hours car-to-car. Did most of it in stiff, heavy hiking boots (still don't trust my healing foot on the approach / descent talus in approach shoes yet), but put climbing shoes on just above where route joins with N Arete.

Fantastic day - cloudless sky, a bit breezy. Snow not an issue for approach this year. Put new notebook in summit register.

Climbed with Caleb. Did the '5.9' finger crack variation according to Supertopo - felt easier (but still fun) than that. Nice day. Simul-climbed most of the route (except pitches 1, 2, and 5). A moderate day car-to-car.

Swaped leads with Gibran. We belayed pitches 1, 2 & 5 as per Supertopo and simul/solo the rest. Very fun climb! I spent almost 1/2 hr taking out one of Gibran's #0 TCU's. Somewhat cloudy but no wind at the summit. We stayed up there 40 minutes (~ 13 hrs car-to-car).

Route Climbed: NE Ridge
Date Climbed: July 31, 2005

Climbed with awagher and Mark Ingram. We left from our bivy spot at Dade Lake at 5:16am. Just about an hour later we got to the saddle and the start of the NE Ridge route. We took two 50M ropes and an alpine rack but never used it on the climb. Made the summit at 8:45am. Some puffy white clouds but never threatning. Descended via Ulrichs route and back at our bivy spot by 11:15am. Packed up and headed out. At 1:15pm we're having cold beers at the Mosquito Flat T/H parking lot and later we hit the Upper Crust Pizza joint in Bishop; the pizza was decent there but not great.
