Great scramble up the south ridge. Really enjoyable class-3 (or higher if you wish) on solid rock.

Incredible windy! The summit was spectacular though. Just a very cold and windy day.

Took and unknown route on the west face to the notch between the north and south summits. This section was class three with some loose sections but not much exposure. From the notch I climbed south to the true summit. The last section is very exposed 4th to low 5th class. First time in the area.

Immediately after climbing Mammoth Rock, I thought I'd try Crystal Crag. Well, I showed up with no route info and no skill - just my own hands, and my feet in trail running shoes. I thought I had climbed to the summit from the west side, but when I turned around and looked to the south, it appeared I had not. The smoke from the Aspen fire was getting to me, so I backed off and hiked up Mammoth Crest to get a better look at what I'd been attempting. I'll finish the job some other time...

Cool and fun scrambling!

My 5th peaks (6th summits) after injury. Still in recovery; this really means something to me.

Beautiful crisp fall day. Cold in the morning. Thought the crux to be higher up. Climbed with my wife who enjoyed it quite a bit! The quartz was everything as promised - really neat.

What a beautiful climb and so much snow to wade through to get to the base! The crystal pitch was blindly bright.

Climbed a N. Arete variation with the Gazelle. First pitch was up the excellent face just left of the starting dihedral/chimney. Fun climbing and superb views from the ridge up high. Crystal pitch was colorful, but a bit loose. Very alpine feel overall.

Climbed with "pfrank". Paul lead crux pitches since I was tired from 5 straight days in the Palisades. Late September weekday = no a single other person in Crystal Lake basin. Beautiful weather, views, and solitude.

so I couldn't pass off ticking off one of the routes listed in Croft's guidebook :-). Led the first and third pitch of the N Arete & simul-climbed to the summit. Descended the S Ridge, taking a difficult line (cl. 4-5). Then I realized I left my sneakers on the summit, so I climbed up and down an easier line (cl. 3).
