Gotta love the creek
Jones Creek is the crux of this big boy.

Linked this to a snow climb on Mount Church. Descent from Donaldson on steep snow back to Lake 9682 was sketchy at times.

Somewhere off route...
Date Climbed: Jul 2, 2002
We had a grand time getting up off-route: only a little 5th class. Fortunately, found the cairns for a much more relaxed descent.

Route Climbed: West Ridge Date Climbed: July 12, 2003
Started out in the wrong drainage. Then gained access to the ridge between Church and Leatherman, trying to connect the two. Ended up not being able to proceed any further and headed back down.
Summated out on Donaldson and then attempted to reach Britenbach on the ridgeline . . . denied again. Exited through the upper part of Jones Creek (which is real nasty and not recommended)
All and all it was a 14 hour day in the July heat.
