b.Black Ice Couloir  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 6, 2009

b.

Valhalla Traverse was easier than expected. The entry rock was dry and the ice in the couloir was hero sticks the whole way. We simul-climbed the ice in three long pitches, no rock fall all day and great overcast, cool day. Perfect conditions, awesome climb.

Etsuko and I hauled our packs to the Lower Saddle the day before. My watch (and its alarm) broke down on the way up. Woke up way too late but went up the route anyway. Pitched out Lower Exum and solo'd most of the Upper ridge. Topped out with one hour of daylight to spare and decided to spend the night on the summit instead of braving a blind/unknown descent down iced up Owen-Spalding. In retrospect, it was a great idea; cloudless warm night on the summit of this great mountain is hard to beat! This is a beautiful and truly classic route!

Took 3 new guys up the OS with a bunch of ice and snow left over from the recent snow but we made it despite waiting 3 hours at the upper saddle for the 16+ climbers ahead of our group. Chalk up a successful #3.

climbed upper exum w/A.J. on a horribly windy and cold morning! when we were in the sun on the south ridge proper, the climb was enjoyable. the ledges on the owens-spalding descent and sargent's chimney were holding a considerable amount of ice.

Great climb with Exum. Reached summit at 7:45am and watched "Old Faithful" erupt. PERFECT weather - guide didn't even use his headlamp due to full moon and balmy conditions. Back to the saddle before 11:00am.

4 hrs from the saddle to the summit via upper Exum (including a wrong turn up OS that cost us about 600' vert). 6 hours out to TH. Very fantastic climb!

Started up the Upper Exum but bailed quickly due to ugly looking clouds. Made it up the OS Owen Chimney var. Some ice still in the chimney from a nasty storm that hit 2 days prior. Amazing summit.

Slept in parking lot under an excursion because of rainfall and lack of tent. Started hiking at about 2. Made it to the saddle in 3 hours. Weather was bad and snowy. Planned on upper exum route but only made it to the eye of needle and turned back. Next time....

Finished the V-pitch, went around to the left (wrong) side of the wall, decided to bail down the rappel to save light. WoundedKnee and I will be back to finish it...

Great one-day climb (15 hours RT), too bad the top was in the clouds as a thunderstorm approached so we didn't see anything, but still a great climb.

Climbed the OS through a hail storm! It was a great climb with huge winds on top! I will come back for the Exum Ridge direct.

My climbing partner's brother wanted to go so we chose the OS to keep the day from getting too long and we got off route for 1.5 hours up the great west chimney and had to back track. It was quite the easy route after we got back on the right route.
