Route Climbed: North Ridge/West Face Date Climbed: July 25, 2004
Bypassed the final difficulties on the north ridge by traversing to the west, and found the crux moves to be surprisingly delicate. Descended the sand slopes on the west side--glad I didn't go up that way!
Route Climbed: North Ridge/South Ridge Date Climbed: September 27, 2003
Initially attempted the North Ridge, but I didn't feel good about doing one of the moves near the top unroped with my son. We went lower, swung around to the South Ridge, and easily climbed to the top. Lots of fun once you get out of the scree. Excellent views. Nice half day when you don't have the time for a longer approach.
