jbtheou Fuhrer Finger - Lost and Found  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 10, 2013


Wonderful route (With some tricky rock climbing at the top of the gully, because of the bad condition of the glacier there).
Done in three days (with D.C. for the way down).

I lost one of my crampon (Grivel) there (After the top of the gully I think, during the steep snow path) ... Let me know if you find it ! ;-) Thank you.

Climbed the Finger in whiteout conditions before turning around at 12,000'. Lots of ice up there right now, the route either needs new snow or sun in order to make for desirable climbing/skiing conditions.

Absolute classic. Beautiful camp on the southern flank of the Wilson glacier. Perfect spring/early summer conditions. Left camp at 4:00 am and summited at 11:00 am. Ski descent back to camp by 1:30. My first time above 14,000.

Summitted via this route on a very windy day. A block of ice came down and hit my helmet which resulted in (fortunately) only a broken headlamp. Some exiting crevasse crossings. Summitted at 1:15pm. Descended the same route. Very soft snow on the way down near 9,500 ft around 3:30pm.
Fun route.

alpine climberup the finger, down the DC  Sucess!

Party of 3 climbed through clouds at Paradise and into sunshine, where we camped near the Fuhrer Finger. Great conditions on the Finger. We were on the summit for 5 minutes before a lenticular cloud hit us. Started down the DC and the clouds broke when we entered the crevasse fields. Fun route, felt like we had the mountain to ourselves.

Climbed with Greg Frank and Matt Strausser. First technical climb, lots of rock fall on the return trip back down the Finger. Excellent weather. Seems like the route to take on this mtn. Only one other party was climbing the day we summited. Approximate date.
