Pretty much what everyone else has said. Poor pro and shitty rock. Opted out of the 'direct start' due to cold (in shadow) plus I'm a bit rusty.
Great for solitude though.

I really enjoyed this. Don't go in expecting the Sharkstooth but do expect a challenging scramble. We motored up lots of 4th to low-5th terrain. Very fun.

zoomloconice route, worth the trip  Sucess!


a very quick climb, on a nice peak, with easy access. definitely more of a roped mountain scramble than a rock climb. I thought the direct start crack is only about 5.4, though hard to protect. On the descent, down the main route, take the closed trail to the left, soon after the wood bridge on the way down to go back to your car instead of continuing to the main trailhead and having to hike 2 miles back up the road

climbed w/james on an overcast day. the arete was much easier than i expected, but we still got 3 good pitches and lots of fun scrambling out of the adventure.

Climbed this route via the 5.7 Direct Start pitch. The climbing was loose and inconsistent, and the overall route quality was less than I expected. Don't think you're getting a classic multi-pitch in this route, it's more of a loose scramble with the option of roping up in a few places.

Good alternative to the trade route. Partner and I only one on route besides goats (which about killed us with rockfall). Shocked to find like 70 people on summit.

My wife's first somewhat technical mountain route. Plenty fun, though a bit more plodding is then needed to reach the summit. Descended the W. Ridge, and a faint trail back down below the north side of the peak (camped down there so I could solo the E. Face of Fletcher the next day).

Very fun mountaineering route. The crux of the climb was a 5.6-5.7 chimney that we encountered near the ridge crest. From then on it was a fun scramble.

Did this route with winter conditions still present. This was a fun rock and snow climb but it took around 15 hours round trip. Be prepared for a long day with this route in winter. Descended in the dark down E. ridge.
