Date Climbed: Aug 25, 2009


Dropped off M & R near Pinchot pass and headed back down the Sawmill Trail. Decided to go over Colosseum on the way out via Armstrong Col and N ridge, then down to woods lake and out over Sawmill.

I found the chute encountered in N ridge route to be loose and unpleasant - but the rest of the climb was great!

I was part of a party of 5 that climbed Baxter's N face in the morning and Colosseum's SW slope afterward. Great spring day in the High Sierra.

Matthew HollimanPerkins-Colosseum-Cedric Wright dayhike  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 2, 2005

Matthew Holliman

Starting at Scotty Springs, hiked up Armstrong Canyon to Perkins (a rather awful sand climb), then traversed along the Sierra Crest to Colosseum. (Colosseum's North Ridge is fun class 3-4, and undoubtedly the best way to climb the peak--stay as close to the ridge as possible for the best rock, exposure, and scrambling). Descended very sandy slopes to Colosseum Col, before heading up to Cedric Wright, then back down the Sawmill Pass trail. Long day.

This was both the first and last time I plan to hike along the Sawmill Pass trail, by the way. Even just heading downhill, it seemed long and tiring. I can't imagine hauling a backpack up that thing.

LangenbacherSouthwest Chute  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 28, 2006


Up from camp at Sawmill Lake, through the pass, and up a steep class 2 chute ending up almost half a mile south of the summit. Descended the west ridge, then back to camp. First entry in the register this year.
