Climbed the NE buttress, encountering mixed conditions lower down, with weird, rotten ice and neve higher up. never broke out of the cloud layer. made a mistake on the descent and ended up down-climbing and then re-ascending most of the west face. why does this keep happening?

We made the summit in a total white out but it was a nice and solid ice climb.By the time we returned to the base by a double rope repell the snow fresh snow was waist deep powder it was some of the best powder I ever seen lite and fluffy wish I had skis.

Had to bail due to wet slabs and melting snow near top of chimney. Very nice climb to that point.

Really different in winter (obviously). Fortunately not as loose...

A classic. Easy access, and fun but not scary climbing.

Showed up late, got stuck behind another party and we were moving pretty slow as is. Climbed the first pitch of the North Face which was a blast then bailed. It was the right decision but sucks none the less.

This route in summer was fun, rock was a little loose and I got "off route" (the traverse back to safety was a little harrowing) all in all a nice way to go. Rappelled down the chimeys to finish.

I remember one early winter attempt where we were forced by ice to retreat, rapping on a root or something aweful like that. No wonder I climb only the easiest routes!

BuckarooN Face and NE Butress  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jan 10, 1994

Buckaroo

N Face Solo, very sketchy, thin crust over powder on the top half. N Face rarely comes in very good conditions. NE Buttress usually a lot better because it's on the sunny side so it gets the melt/freeze. Not recommended in summer, climbers have been killed due to choss rock, no good gear. Soloed the NE Buttress a month later and a year later with a friend. 4 attempts before the first summit.

First time I ever led, taking a first time climber. Luckily it was an easy climb or else we would have had "a bad day".

Great alpine route in full conditions - snow, spindrift avalanches, high winds, low visibility. . Don and Pat were on route at the same time we were. Route is in good condition (right now).
