Date Climbed: May 18, 2014


super rad climb with emily! the ridge is in pretty gnarly, technical condition. we roped for 5 pitches of 5.2, 4th-class ice, cornices above warming double couloirs and M-whatever the rating climbing. much more interesting than we had expected!

This is an outstanding spring route. On the way down, we saw the crater of some unfortunate who did a "full-body posthole" in the soft spring snow. Fun, aesthetic route!

Amazing day on an amazing route. Snow conditions were challenging, with lots of rime snow on everything and filling all the cracks; but the weather was perfect. Pretty dry snow conditions overall but fantastic varied terrain.

2nd time was still as much fun as the first. Snow wasn't in quiet as good of shape but still a fun day out.

SPOR-TA.. this route with full winter conditions is def a little suntin suntin.. able to climb full ridge but had to forego the true summit because 80mph were trying to throw us off the mtn. getting down proved to be a hell of an adventure.. started backtracking on ridge but wind was so off the chain had to drop down.. many hours filled with raps off trees as big as sticks, crossing steep snow chutes, savage wind and cold. finally back to lake.. arrived truck 2am. quality day .. grateful for skilled, cool headed partner. i will walk away from this one with many lessons learned. thanks Steve.

Really nice climb. I enjoyed this more than Kelso Ridge, though I'm not sure carrying rope for the short technical section is worth it. We didn't see anyone from the lake all the way to the summit. Scree descent sucks.
