Route Climbed: NE Couloir/NW Ridge (ascent) / East Ridge/Traverse to Wheeler (descent) Date Climbed: June 10, 2005
I'd originally just planned to climb Broken Finger Peak this day, but Wheeler looked pretty impressive on the approach... so I decided to try and add it on to the day's agenda. The traverse along the connecting ridge ended up taking much longer than I'd guessed from the map, and was a bit spicy in one or two places.
