guerinakSW Gully  Sucess!


Climbed solo via South Gully route. Bluebird day made for great views of the musical peaks. Saw a black bear at the col between Point 5500 and Point 5764.

LaronSE gully  Sucess!


I soloed a steep gully on the SE side of Hurdygurdy after a successful climb of Eagle. Steep snow and scree led to the E ridge, which was easy in accessing the summit.

A year previous, I tried the SW Gully route, but didn't make the summit. The Class 3 ridge on the west side is definitely more difficult.

Fun hike with a little drizzle, made the mistake of coming down a different way and ended up downclimbing some interesting terrain.

Steve GruhnNorthwest Ridge  Sucess!
Climbed solo in August 1993 from saddle between Harp Mountain and Hurdygurdy Mountain. Dropped a few hundred feet into the North Fork drainage and then reclimbed to the northwest ridge of Hurdygurdy Mountain. Descended the south face to the valley east of Eagle Lake.

Most photos on the page were taken on this date. I also traversed Point 5500+, but not the true summit, in 2006.
