MelbaToastRoute Climbed: Made up our own Date Climbed: August 21, 2004  Sucess!


There were several groups ahead of us on the rock when we got there so we climbed around them on some faces. It got really cold and windy two pitches from the summit so we hurried up and hiked down the back. A very nice, easy climb, beautiful views, and a satisfying day. It would probably be best to do it late in the day or in the middle of the week, though!

We mixed and matched a route just west of the classic SE Buttress. Some nice lines @ 5.5 - 5.7. 3 man team, 5.5 pitches on a 60M rope. Fun.

This route is way crowded! The descent is kind of weird, we went all the way left to the notch with Eichorn, and then back across.

I noticed someone removed the rappel anchor from the summit.

Nice route, much easier than anticipated. To spice things up a bit Etsuko and I climbed the 5.7 variation to the right of the Chimney. Fun! However, think again if you want to climb this route on a warm sunny summer weekend day. Aside from us there were probably 20 people on the route. Even though there are variations, we all bottlenecked below the summit and ended up waiting for hours before we could top out. Nevertheless, it was enjoyable and incredibly serene. We climbed the route in 5 pitches (stretched first two pitches to 210' each), with me leading pitches #1 (5.5-5.6), #3 (5.7 variation) and #4 (5.5?); and Etsuko leading #2 (5.6) and #5 (to the summit, 5.6)

I lost one of my yellow Aliens somewhere on the route (whoever finds it, ENJOY), and found a #2 Camalot. Go figure :)

Great day of climbing the Southeast Buttress with Alberto Alesina; we did it in 6 pitches, leading 3 each. The descent required hiking all the way to the base of Eichorn due to snow in the bowl below the summit. One other party climbing at the same time and same speed as us (3 forest service employees) and 2 parties behind us.

This was a warmup for our unsuccessful attempt on the Fishhook Arete of Mount Russell.

Really fun climb!! That is unless you were the pair of dunses that starteed up late and disregarded the storm that was brewing and ended up dumping on them while on route!! It was pretty cool to straddle the summit! I almost went flying while I was leading the pitch through the chimny when a rescue choper came out of nowhere at our same elevation and seemed as though it was 75 feet away!! Good times with by boy CD!!

Did this with Howard Sebold. Tooks the 5.7 line. Wonderful aestheic climb. Got spooked off the summit by building clouds. Got lapped on the descent by a soloist, Steve Seats. He climbinged the thing in 20 minutes compared to our 4 hours.

Incredible summit trip with approaching thunderstorm on '86 trip. The SE Buttress rt. was very enjoyable with old friends Hugh and Dan Sakols.

I was thinking of doing the SE face, but there were already 4 climbing teams starting when we arrived, so we went for the mountaineers route. We tried to climb the north face, without much luck. Instead we decended to climb the mountaineers route, a fine time for all.

Arrived at the base of Cathedral @ 10:50 AM....only 4 parties above. Cranked up SE Butt. in 35 minutes. Had a 45-minute lunch on the summit with not a soul topping out. Gorgeous weather. Some gumby left two new ropes in between the saddle of Cathedral and Eichorn. Split one with Mike Shaffer (YMG), who was guiding a client. Guess that's the price you pay for being in a hurry (no reason to: weather was great, no reported accidents etc). Must have money to throw around.......

Climbed this one a couple of times. The first time was back on Oct 18, '03 via the west face with Dave, Rich, and Mike... it's an awesome peak, although Eichorn Pinnacle steals the show on this approach. I immediately put that on my to-do list.

Came back a few months later (Jun 18, '04) to climb the SE Buttress with Sam, probably just my second or third multi-pitch climb ever (he led everything)... there were four or five parties on the route even that day. Fun climb! We ran out of time for Eichorn Pinnacle.
