Ledges start with Ryan. Scrambled to the base of the headwall and climbed it in two pitches. Nice rock, beautiful setting, - classic route!

waited till the wind died down and got a start after 9 am. Multiple groups attempted the route that day but only 2 made the summit.

mbdickhutPotential New Pitch (FA?)  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 6, 2010


Took the Direct Start from the Upper Col. Lake. Added a bit of good adventure climbing to the route. Altitude got to me a bit since we drove up the day before from Arkansas. Forgot the topo in the vehicle and got off route at the headwall. See link on this site for potential new pitch. Regardless of an FA or not I was happy to add a full pitch to this outstanding classic. Please contact me if you have any beta on the potential new pitch!

Date Climbed: Aug 28, 2010


Great, exposed scrambling leads to fun high altitude climbing -- what more could be said of this awesome route? I do remember wishing that there was another pitch :)

We had 2 two-person rope teams leave the campground/trailhead at 6:00 AM and were back by 6:30 PM. It was a long, fun day in the mountains. Not recommended for those who aren't fans of exposure.

Oh this was such a long day for me so long ago. Lucked out on the weather and no rain or storm. The biggest feat was I drove the road 4x4 road in less than 1 hour. Guess that is why my CJ7 was dead after that summer.

FlexFun Route  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 5, 2006


My B-day route for '06. We were camped at the Lower Lake, climbed 3 pitches of the direct start, unroped and soloed most of the route, belayed 3 more pitches at the the top and were back down at the lake for my B-day party at noon! Fun day in the mountains.

IsaiahFirst true alpine lead  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 8, 2006


Wow, from the campground it took two of us 13:30 to do the entire thing. We left with the sun and returned as it did. Great weather (Thank God) and it gave me a ton of experience. The best and hardest mountain I have climbed to date.

4:30am to 7pm. Parking in the passenger lot adds a lot of time but well worth it for this gem. Beautiful weather on a classic route! Need I say more?

Albert Ellingwood and Eleanor Davis were way ahead of their time. This is an impressive alpine route.

spenceinboulderMemorize The Descent Route on This Climb  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 26, 1998


We got a bit of a late start from the parking area (6am) and gambled with the weather. Great morning, great climb, but we were pinned down on a ledge in rainstorm two pitches below the summit for most of the aftenoon. We finally summitted at 9pm and promptly realized that neither of us had a clue about the descent. Kinda' complicated in the dark, zigged when we should have zagged. We optd for a cold bivy and then descended in the AM.
