Traverse from Old Snowy Date Climbed: Sep 12, 2015
Cool traverse from Old Snowy. Through the arch and down the ridge. We went through the moat on the glacier. Pretty sketchy this time of year. Class 3/4 climb out of it back to the ridge on rock that just pulled out of the mountain. After that, easy up to the summit though.
Lots of boulder scrambling. Near the top if you think you’ve hit a dead end (a 40’ vertical rock wall), descend about 50-100 feet and look towards the rock wall to your side; there will be a path leading to the other side, and another rocky slope you will be able to scramble to top via. Absolutely gorgeous view; well worth the effort!
