Lambslide-Loft-Old Cables Route Date Climbed: Jun 7, 2009
We did the same route as rleclair the next day. Thanks to those guys for kicking steps. We completed in about 10 hours starting at 3 AM. We got to the Boulder Field just before the storms hit, 60+ mph winds and snow squalls.
Lambslide-Loft-Old Cables Route Date Climbed: Jun 6, 2009
A very long day but what a trip! This was my "graduation climb" for the CMC Basic Mountaineering School. We departed camp at 4 AM to Chasm Lake. Lambslide was in reasonably good conditions, some postholing, a wetslide down the center - but solid towards the top. Topped out on the Loft to Clark's Arrow (actually found it this time), past the Palisades to the Homestretch. The Homestretch was all snow - sweet! Spent some time looking for the entrance to the old cables route and traversed the snow covered top to the 2nd bolt - from there rap down to the Boulderfield. 14 hours start to finish but loved it!
