Date is approximate. What a great scramble, such fine grippy rock.

A beautiful climb in perfect conditions with Rich Kim and Pat Hadley. Fearless leader Pat found a way to bypass the mantle move, for which we were grateful.

Third time's the charm, failed earlier this year and the year before because of too much snow, but conditions and weather cooperated this time!

There was a bit of ice on the rock making the East Ridge feel quite airy and uncomfortable for me. I technically could have made it, but seemed like a risk beyond what I was willing to take. It was certainly a worthy attempt.

ElGrecoEast ridge ascent, N ridge descent  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 7, 2011

A fantastic ascent route that I didn't enjoy as much as it deserved because I'd spent all my mental and physical energy, and almost one of my remaining lives, going up a sh***y gully from Cleaver cirque up the SE ridge of Carillon to get to the Russell-Carillon saddle.

The rock on the E ridge is excellent. The first half is easy and not exposed. Difficulty and exposure increase after that, but nothing dramatic. A way always materializes when you get up close, and the moves are fun.

The N ridge is much looser and dirtier. Traversed below the ridgeline to the E summit, then dropped down the ridge sticking to its N side. Low down, I had to traverse way over to climber's left (facing down) to avoid the pinnacles and other difficulties on the ridge.

Dropped to Tulainyo after that. Climbed and descended Cleaver Col back to camp.

Climbed with three partners from UBS Lake basecamp. Snow on much of the route made it more fun and interesting. The exposure and views are exhilirating, but there is always a way to move through. Fun stuff!

14+ hours car-to-car. Started in the dark and finished in the dark. Ascending the scree/sand slope above Clyde Meadow was, er, not fun. Though extremely strong winds were forecasted, there was little to no wind. We got lucky!

Wonderful route, solid, exposure, and long. LOVED the 'sidewalk' section with 1-2K drops on either side, and the mantle move. It was a first time-Class 3 route for my partner; Took full packs over the Russell Col, spent the night at Tulainyo for a eary start & out. She cleaned it easy.

Perfect day, in the perfect place. We took a missed turn on the descent and ended up cliffing out. A few thrown skies, and packs later with a little front pointing in ski boots and we were back at the bottom. Good day.
