Rice Climber

Well...my pack undid itself while in the Chimney and all sorts of s*** flew out of it....like my lunch. I didn't like my lunch anyway. I hope the full nalgene didn't hit anyone. I had to "zip-it-up" mid-pitch...

Great day out with Mike, Rob, and Ken. As mentioned by others, a long process with 4 on a line. Alots of good rope management/technique practice was a side benefit. Route truely as good as literature says. Part of a 3 peak weekend (with University & Laurel).

climbed the ridge with my girl - we simul-climbed from the "second tower" to the crest, then climbed one horizontal roped pitch and soloed the last 100 feet. Great fun - cracks were all full of snow from the storm two days before! Also climbed the North Arete in August of 2006

Climbed the beautiful North Arete with my nephew (Marty). He lead all the hard stuff and we quickly passed about 3 other parties. Terrific glissades on the way back down. CTC in about 12 hours. This is 5-Star route

Climbed this with MikeSash, ChuckO, and Ken. This is just a kick in the ass fun climb. Snow kept us to the right in low class 5. With 4 people on one set of doubles it took a while, but as Mike says, at least the views were stellar. Would recomend this climb to anyone.

climbed with Tim from USC. Simul-climbed entire route to summit in 4 hrs. Passed two groups of climbers who awoke very early beating us onto the Arete by climbing some flakes right of the normal route for pitches 1-2 (this ended up being the crux of the climb). totally wasted after the day was over though...

A fun simul climb, had to make a point of keeping it 5th class but 20+ pieces of gear later we were on the top having protected the route and completed it without stopping!

We were very surprised to find the route in full on winter conditions. The route was covered in snow and ice. We made it up about 3 pitches before time ran out as we were going for the car to car.

Climbed via Ulrich's route w/ Bechtt and Mountain Impulse. Weather started off great, started snowing at the top of Cox Col. Starting comming down heavy by the time we reached the summit, quickly summited the summit block and headed back down in heavy snow. Very slippery. Great Trip!

I'm sorry I put this off for so long, this is a fine peak. The NE Ridge is a truly fun scramble, with enough exposure and difficulty to keep your focus.

Debbi and I did a handful of peaks over the Labor Day weekend, which included NE Ridge. Loved the "stegasaurus" back and keeping close to the North Arete. Wild and sometimes exposed climbing. Great day! Had a rest day a few days later and watched 5 out of 7 parties get "thwarted" on North Arete. Amusing!

Returned again to this classic scramble, this time as part of my knee rehab program. Barry, D.Rod, Stan, and myself enjoyed the route immensely, each taking a slightly different variation. Good (and scary) times were had by all. Hit Pyramid Peak on the way up and Pipsqueak Spire on the way down.

Summited with Andre via Ulrich's route. Apart from the seemingly interminable boulder hopping, the climb above Cox Col was enjoyable with a little class 4 thrown in for good measure.

My first multi-pitch Sierra climb. Thanks to Dara for the great lead. Found the route description from Supertopo very helpful.

Climbed with SP member hashfxn; lots of loose rock lower down, very nice further along the upper pitches (if roped up). The descent can be tricky, so daylight is manditory unless the route is selected earlier.
Quite a fun route to ascend.

This was the largest, and most challenging alpine climb I have attempted. As a result of exposure, rain/hail, and slow climbing we bailed 100 feet from the summit, so we could make it back to the trail before dark. I'll return, someday, to finish this one off.

What a mountain! Fun the whole way. Multiple parties on top including 2 teams doing North Arete, a solo doing the NE ridge, and myself. Met more climbers heading up on the way down so definitely a popular mountain. Pictures
