dpatmalloy7 out of 9, great day  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 13, 2007

dpatmalloy

With my fiance Sarah, climbed all except for #4 and #6. She led #9 in two pitches, and it took two raps to get down; we removed **really** old slings and replaced with new on each rap. No entries in the register since Bob and Matthew last year. We will have to go back to get those other two another time, #4 looks like we will definitely want a rope again, and #6 was just a little more exposed and difficult than I wanted to downclimb at the end of a long day (which included an hour of rest for me to deal with random indigestion). We need to climb them all...they are depicted on the engagement ring that a jeweler friend designed for us earlier this year!

Solo adventure up the West Face route on Echo Peak #3. Fun scrambling, although I was a bit surprised at the exposure on the final ridge portion. Ascended Cathedral Lakes trail and descended via Budd Creek with perfect weather.

Did 6 or 7 of these, took no beta with me and tried to have a lot of fun by going up fun-looking places. Scared myself off what must be #9, I went to check it out but quickly reconsidered. Wanted to traverse to Cockscomb and Unicorn but difficulty on the ridge and the large amounts of snow made me call it a day... was quite happy, beautiful place!!

Did #1 on a solo trek through the backcountry for 4 days at the end of the season- The days were warm and the nights were cold. Amazing country, especially with no else around at this time.

Vladislav

On the way from Echo 2 to Echo 3

My body starts shaking vigorously.

As I stop the shaking abates,

As I make a move forward

It starts again with increased intensity.

A brief vision of a climber

Tumbling down the steep West Face

Is convincing enough:

There will be no more climbing for me today.

Ashamed I retrace my steps,

Turned back by a mere class 3.

Date Climbed: Sep 23, 2005

Matthew Holliman

Sep 23, 2005, No. 3 - West Face: Very cool climb up steep, exposed flakes. Continued on to Echo Ridge, with absolutely spectacular views of Matthes Crest.

Oct. 22, 2006, No. 5, 7, 8, 9: Climbed with Bob, Sam, and Glenn as an easier day after Cleaver/Blacksmith. Wasn't feeling good (dizzy due to lack of sleep the previous couple of nights), so I bailed on the outing after those peaks.

Didn't have time or the desire to climb them all (especially #9). Just out there to enjoy the afternoon. Watched some slow pokes on Cathedral on Sunday. it appeared there were only 3 parties (at best) on Cathderal that day...a new record!

DebRoute Climbed: A few of them Date Climbed: 10 October 2005  Sucess!

Deb

I can't remember what peak is what, but I only hit up three of them due to exhaustion and knobs popping off under my hiking boots. Interesting view of Yosemite Valley from up there eventhough I hated that knifeblade crotch shuffle required to top out on one of those things. Does the wind ever stopped blowing?!

Matthew and I climbed this as our second peak of the day after Tresidder. I liked the slabs coming up the west face, and the final 3rd class sharp edge to the summit of number 3. I would like to go back and get all 9, I didn't do any others as I had very little beta, and we were on our way to Echo Ridge and Cockscomb.

Came back and did #1,#2, #3, #6, #8, #5. Running low on time for the rest of our traverse so we left for Echo RIdge after these. Looks like I'll have to go back again for the remaining ones!

Climbed Echo Peaks #1, #2, #3 and #6 with Bob Swanson. I thought they were so cool, that i took some novice climbers up the following August to do #1, #2, and #3. Not every wanted to climb #3. But they all loved the hike up. What a great view of Cathedral and Matthes Crest. Went up one last time with Bob and Jeff. This time #1, #3 and only thought about #4. Jeff's first time camping out over night in the states.
