chicagotransplantSouth Ridge from Piney  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 20, 2011


Climbed with Brian and Ben. Started at Piney and left the Kneeknocker trail to head for the saddle between Powell and East Corner. Dropped slightly to the Cataract Creek basin but stayed high contouring below the Eagles Nest-Powell ridge. Ascended boulderfield to talus gully to ridge just north of the major difficulties of the traverse. Continued on to traverse the ridge to Powell, plenty of scrambling, mostly class 3 and 4 with some bypasses of the higher difficulties.

Started at the surprise Lake Trailhead and climbed Eagles Nest's East Ridge. Straightforward with one tricky downclimb to pass a big gendarme. Continued on to Mount Powell via the connecting ridge.

From upper cateract to mirror lake, then ascent of west gullies. Descent of North face gullies. First mountaineering experience ever for my brother and no one else in sight on 4th of July weekend. Great 6.5 hr day.

NelsonRoute Climbed: Western slopes from Mirror Lake Date Climbed: July 5, 1978


My first Colorado summit attempt. Turned back on steep rock at about 12,500' after deciding I had no business being up there alone and inexperienced. A month later I enrolled in a basic mountaineering school with the Colorado Mountain Club.
