cabNE Buttress  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 14, 2014


A really fun climb of the NE Buttress after climbing Mt. Stanford the day before. Nice, solid Class 3 for most of the upper part of the route.

mrchad9West Ridge  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 17, 2013


After my partner flaked on me I ended up on a solo trip from Harrison Pass. First up Stanford and Caltech before heading over to Ericsson via the east ridge/slope. Descended to Lucys Foot Pass and then up Deerhorn to cap off the day. West ridge involved a bit of routefinding (thanks to some not entirely accurate information in Secor's book) and was a bit slow as well as I was trying to delay while some storms dispersed. Finally got up in early evening and then returned the same way. Ended up being a fun scramble and I suppose the misinformation made it even more interesting.

This peak was a GOOD scramble!! with a bit of challenge... bit of route finding on the way up, easier on the way down as Holliman states, I share his sentiments exactly!

Solo dayhike from Onion valley.

Nice day hike with Brian F (of Marie P fame). On the way back, Brian eyed East Vidette as a diversion (I've done) and I eyed West Vidette (he's done) so in the end, we just hiked back to the trailhead. Great rock on this route -- definitely need to go back and do the NE Ridge.

Deerhorn-West Vidette dayhike out of Onion Valley. Thanks to route-finding differences, I found the NE Buttress to be more like very spicy class 4 on the way up, and very easy class 2-3 on the way down--I guess it averages out to be class 3? Deerhorn was fun, West Vidette wasn't.
