Scrambled to the south summit, but wasn't 100% confident about downclimbing from the north summit without a rope (lots of exposure and a slightly tricky move), so I backed off from that one. (It looked like it was most likely easy enough to solo, but my gf's already extracted a promise that I'll take her to this area, so I figured I'll go back with a rope for the north summit another time. If it were an SPS peak, I'm pretty sure I'd have summited, though...)
Route Climbed: Southwest Face via Glacier Col Date Climbed: September 6, 21003
Ascended the Horse Creek Trail, then left the trail to gain the Cleaver Notch, up and over Glacier Col, and down and around to the Southwest Face. Did not climb all the way to the top of the Northwest Pinnacle, the highest summit on Blacksmith.
"Got tight last night on absinthe and did knife tricks. Great success shooting the knife into the piano. The woodworms are so bad and eat hell out of all furniture that you can always claim the woodworms did it."
