BradBartickNice spring weather in winter  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Mar 19, 2017


Skinned to Q saddle, dropped skis and hoofed it to summit. About 50 feet from the high point, a large male goat stood on the very top of the summit and stared me down. I sat for awhile hoping he would leave but he was determined not to give his ground. On my descent, i kept looking back. He probably stood there for over an hour. I still marked this peak as summitted, but technically a goat stole my summit. Skiing was ok, sun softened the wind crust a bit, then too much. Probably mid 30's with nice breeze and bluebird skies.

seano"Spicy Black and Tan"  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 8, 2016


Climbed what I think is the couloir right of the standard black-and-tan, with a spicy mixed finish that dumps you on a little subsidiary ridge just short of the summit. Continued to Drift. Trip report.

Traversed from Drift to Fletcher. Lots of loose rock on the traverse, but very pretty area.

I lost my iPhone somewhere between the summit (might be there) and the end of the rocky upper part. Please let me know if you find it! It has my name and email on the lock screen.

Date Climbed: Aug 12, 2014


Ascended and descended Quandary's west ridge and decided to throw this in for fun. I think I'm going to have to come back to do the ridge between Fletcher and Atlantic! Looks awesome!

Made it to summit in high winds and near white out conditions. Absolutely no view from the summit but any day in the mountains is a good day!

Started up at 7:15am, got a little lost then back on track and on to the summit at 10:15 with my Nephew Wil and buddy Andy. Back to the TH just before a T-Storm at 12:25pm. Beautiful day for this nice trek.

It was tough getting up the gully to the connecting ridge with Quandary. I dislodged a 100# rock down onto my knee, but luckily lifted my leg which prevented major damage. Nice views of the original Holy Cross and not a soul to be seen.

chicagotransplantEast Face Couloir  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 19, 2011


Climbed the east face couloir with Darin from McCullough Gulch. We took the main couloir that comes down directly from the summit, finished to the left side to avoid a cornice so not quite a direct finish. Narrow choke is starting to get icy and will probably melt out soon, get this one quickly for continuous snow!
