Route Climbed: North Ridge up from Honeymoon Basin Date Climbed: Aug 26, 2011
Climbed up from Polaris Pass and picked up Sentinel Peak along the way. Although it's a long hike from any trailhead, this peak is well worth the effort. The views from the top were spectacular and Honeymoon Basin below the peak is truly unique and seldom seen.
Route Climbed: Southeast slope/East ridge Date Climbed: October 2, 2004
This is a spectacular glacial horn with diverse geology. I made the route up more difficult than it had to be. The southeast slope is a long scree climb and the east ridge is technical on slippery decomposing limestone with some basalt pillars. I sort of mixed the two up. The summit receives only a few visits each year, thus the alpine vegetation is much more intact than most of the other high mountains of this range. Lots of goats in the basin below.
"So I was sitting in my cubicle today, and I realized, ever since I started working, every single day of my life has been worse than the day before it. So that means that every single day that you see me, that's on the worst day of my life."
