I went exploring one day and ended up on Diorite. I traversed the ridge to Mount Moss, which involved some thoughtful class 4 climbing to breach the summit cliffs. On a lighter note, trundling mailbox sized blocks off of the north face was a lot of fun!
via traverse from Hesperus Date Climbed: Jul 21, 2007
Climbed Lavender via the traverse from Hesperus. This traverse is not recommended unless you are a good routefinder and have a high tolerance for loose junk! Met partner on Lavender, who started from Tomahawk Basin. You'll need great weather and a real early start, because there are few bailout options on the ridge.
