West Ridge via Moon Lake with Scot and Craig. The ridge is fun, but the never ending talus from Moon Lake to get there is really tedious. Camped near the tarns below Moon Lake and climbed 12903 the next day.
Hiked up Clark Peak from the Pierre Lakes Basin. After reaching the summit, we started to traverse the ridge line towards Capitol, but a big storm came in and we had to back off. We were hoping to check out the possibility of accessing Capitol via the rock chute in between the two peaks.
9/3/06 - This is one of my favorite 13ers. Climbed the west ridge right after Capitol & Daly from a camp below Moon Lake. It was a long, exhausting day. The ridge was narrow and exposed in places but the rock was fairly solid.
12/31/16 - Went back for a winter ascent. Backpacked to Moon Lake, climbed Clark and Daly the next day, then packed out the morning after that. Great weather, excellent (dry-ish) winter conditions. Clark's west ridge was a delightful scramble in crampons.
"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."
