West Face from Snyder Lake Date Climbed: Sep 8, 2012
With a small GMS group. The mountain itself was great, probably the cleanest rock I have ever seen in the park, a fantastic climb. 90% of the effort was getting there. The bushwhack around Upper Snyder lake and the wet loose climb up the Snyder Basin walls were not pleasant. Though the thick huge huckleberries almost made up for it. Next time I go via Comeau Pass.
Climbed with OTHG from Snyder Lakes. Ivan O'Neal and George Ostrom were really elated to reach this summit! George said he had been turned back by weather several times previously. We found the "best-ever" hucks around upper Snyder lake...huge!!
