We set out early and were turned back by intense lightning and hail at 10 AM. The climb up to Willow Lake was magnificent and it was a great trip despite the storm.

The pair from Willow Crk. Harder day than I expected, but got it done. Chased off the mountain by bad weather after quickly getting KC.

Altitude sickness got the best of one in our party, so I turned around with her while the other two continued. Beautiful area, bummer that we didn't summit.

CastillejaMiniataGot both, second try.
Date Climbed: Jun 21, 2010


The first day above Willow Lake I tried for one of the couloirs northeast of Carson's summit. A cornice near the terminal ridge halted me just dozens of feet from the top. I camped in the valley that night and was up a little after sunrise to do the standard Challenger-Kit route, and just in time to evade some storms.

Late June 2010 - Ascended the north ridge (unbelievably awesome route - much better than I expected), traversed to Challenger, then descended the Kirk Couloir.

Stuck rope and penji. Nasty fall at the crux. Landed on the ledge on my back. I thought the rope snapped over one of those sharp edges. I was the 2nd too. Day was pretty much over after that. What a disappointment. Painful and gorgeous hike out tho.

this is an incredibly fun route offering solid class-4 rock and plenty of exposure. Crossed the avenue to Challenger and descended the standard route
