Enjoyed the hike over to Father Dyer from Crystal Peak. Weather was beginning to turn sour, however, so we bailed down a green but steep-as-all-git-out slope on the north side of the ridge between Fr. D and Mt. Helen. This was NOT anyone's favorite part of the trip (not on aging knees, at least). I especially love how Father Dyer sits out on his lonesome. Partners: Carol & Deb.

Traversed the ridge from Mt Helen. Ended up being far more committing than I expected, but mainly because I attempted to stay along the ridgeline proper rather than routefinding around obstacles. Ended up making one extremely thought-provoking downclimb along the way.

Date Climbed: Jul 23, 2006


Climbed with gurlyclimber. We ascended the east ridge on Father Dyer Peak and then traversed the class 3 ridge over to Mt Helen and down. Some nice fun scrambling on mostly solid rock. The ridge traverse reminded me of a sort of mini-Ellingwood Ridge (LaPlata), a nice route!

The ridge from Helen to Father Dyer rank as one of my favorites (gives Pacific's class III ridge a run for it's money!)on a 13er. It is as easy as class III or as hard as you want to make it (tower avoiding or climbing). I'll be back for the direct Father Dyer class III route!

Did the Helen, Father Dyer, Crystal Peak combination. The ridge in between Helen & Father Dyer was extreme fun. Very rugged & exposed.

What an awesome climb. One of my favorite in the Ten Mile/Mosquito Range. Excellent Class 3 scrambling on solid rock for nearly 1000 ft to the summit. From there I continued on to Crystal, Peak 10 and Peak 9 before returning to the Spruce Creek TH via the Wheeler Trail.

Only saw one other person.

Climbed Father Dyer as part of a long loop including Helen, Crystal, Pacific & Atlantic. Loved the scramble from Helen to Father Dyer! We finished with a traverse back east along Pacific's east ridge.

I've climbed Father Dyer several times using all the routes on this page. It's one of my favorites.
