Shirley LamNE Ridge  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 15, 2009

Shirley Lam

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.

Mostly tame, tedious sand until the summit ridge and that balance-beam part. Escaped down the back to avoid a storm, and got seriously drenched on the return.

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.

Date Climbed: Jul 30, 2008


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.
