Thanks for adding this--I doubt I'd have ever gone out there if I hadn't seen your page and had my curiosity piqued, but it was worth a visit. Good route description, too.



BTW, apart from keeping left to avoid the initial cliffs just past the saddle, I pretty much followed the crest with only very minor variations the rest of the way--good approach shoes were helpful for friction on a couple of moves, but I thought the ridge stayed no more than 3rd class the whole way. I didn't find it necessary to drop down to the right.

Yeah, the day I did it I had my wife along, so we played it safe. Glad it was fun!

FYI --- I edited the route description to reflect your rating of the crest. I was basically taking a guess at it, but some of the moves that I could see before leaving the crest looked like 4th+ to me. Thanks for the info!

While Matthew says he wouldn't have climbed the peak if he hadn't noticed your mountain page, I wouldn't have noticed the mountain page if Matthew hadn't climbed it.



Nice work!

Ha! That's funny, my friend. Should I be looking for plaques on certain peaks saying "Matthew was here"? You know, Kilroy-style?

Yes, and they'll all be dated 2004. He did 114 SP peaks this year, and probably about 30 other non-SP ones. He's already passed my lifetime total of SPS peaks. That boy was busy...
