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.

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.
