mrjenks85Becoming one of my favorites  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 23, 2015


I have lived in the Pacific Northwest for less than a year, so I have not done enough repeat summits to say for sure what my favorite peaks are. After 2 climbs of this one I know its going to be one on the list.

Did this one as a 2 day overnight where we stayed at the camp at the base of the ridge and climbed for a sunrise summit. Forrest fires obscured views of some of the mountains, but made for some crazy sunrise colors across the landscape.

Love that knife edge! This mountain gives a wonderful complete alpine experience.

Was up on top right after dawn. Views were amazing! A nice mellow snow climb with a little knife edge to spice it up.

Camped on the ridge between Eldorado and Roush basins (~6100 ft), beautiful spot. Views are amazing everywhere. The knife edge was very narrow and exciting, but with great steps. Going just past the summit, there are some nice rocks to relax and have lunch. Boulder field really sucked on the way down. Great climb in an incredible area.

Wow. The summit of this mountain is amazing. It more than makes up for the approach, whose steepness would make Mailbox Peak blush. Great views and a beautiful route.

This was my third time up this peak which was still a lot of fun. Summit ridge was in great shape as well as the glaciers.

Heat wave in Seattle made the going tough in the lower elevations. Totally bathed in sweat. There were a few easily traversed cravasses. Just enough space on the summit for all 4 of us to get photos.

Lower boulder field (4k) has melted out for the most part. Upper is under snow with small moats forming in places. High camp at 7500 ft. Had the summit around 5:30am the following day. Knife edge is in excellent shape, just enough of room across for two boots. One small and one medium size crevasse near the summit, easy to avoid.

Had the mountain all to ourselves. Upper ridge is fun, descent through forest is not!

Another great area, backcountry skier's nirvana. Early season usually makes crevasse danger almost non-existant, as long as one pays attention to route.

The lower talus field is clear of snow, the upper talus field has some snow cover, and plunging through is a danger. We also had to cross over a few waterfalls on snow bridges but you could potentially avoid these by staying close to the granite cliffs. No crevasses were opened up and so once we got past the talus fields the rest of the mountain was great hiking and a beautiful summit. The descent is pretty brutal on the knees and is difficult with a tall or bulky pack due to the logs you duck under and how steep the trail is.
