surgentLike a maze up there  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Feb 27, 2016


ONce off the trail, it gets tricky to weave your way through the rocks, little gullies, brush and trees. Keep an eye out for ribbons and cairns, but expect a few places where hands will be needed. Otherwise, it was an awesome day hike!

Date Climbed: Feb 27, 2016


Hiked with surgent. We hiked to the summit via the 261 trail and then scrambled to the top. The off-trail route was for the most part fairly easy to follow as there were some ribbons and cairns. Gorgeous warm day and great views from the top.

Rick Hartman led our party to the top via a use route that
is hard to follow in spots. Sjaak Vanschie claimed the
Netherlands first ascent (?).

I climbed this excellent route with Pat Brennen. Great climbing here, climbing under the "great roof" and the position for that belay was awesome.

peakbaggerRoute Climbed: Tread Gently (5.8) Date Climbed: August 30, 2002  Sucess!


I found this to be a wonderfully aestethic climb, albeit one of the shorter routes on the mountain. Not suprisingly, the second pitch, rated 5.6 in the guide, was far from it. I would give it more like 5.8, due to some really smeary sections and one moderately difficult, thin seam. Sandbagged routes are par for the course for the area though. Don't try this climb or any others at the height of the day around this time of year-wicked sick hot!
