|snowbeast745||Summited Via East Ridge |
Date Climbed: Jul 20, 2012
|Took the old road to the back country trail up to the ridge. Enjoyed a beautiful view of Palmer before following the ridge to the peak. Spent a few hours picking out the safest way to the summit. I have some rock climbing experience and my partner has mountaineering and ice climbing experience. We ended up taking a rather challenging route up. Definitely class 4. Lots of poor quality rock, loose rock, and scree on the way up. |
Took about 5 hours to summit. Took the first gully down east of the summit. Lots and lots of loose scree. Was a little sketchy.
Took about 9 hours start to finish. Overall, a nice challenging hike with some amazing views. Very enjoyable.

|Laron||E ridge and South Face|
|I attempted the E Ridge, which I found to be very challenging. The route finding, rock climbing, and exposure all were too much for me. I turned around at a rock step, a corner system on the north side of the ridge. Doable but I decided to go back down because it was rather soggy. |
A year later I climbed up the South Face gullies, which had a bit of Class 4 rock to gain the summit. Twas fun! Fantastic view from the summit.

|Climbed E Ridge, descended the South Gully (which was then quite different from what it is today). Photos on the main page were taken on an Aug. 2011 ascent.|
