Amazing area. Not quite what I expected, but hey was still an adventure in the end. Ruined the rest of the summer on the descent when I rolled my ankle however. Damn it.

After turning back 100' feet from the summit on Solo Flight 4 years ago I finally came back. Climbed the NF with my buddy Glen and had a great day. Steep grass, cliff-dwelling marmots, thistles and loose rock make for alpine climbing at its best. The 5.7 pitch is steep and sustained. Finished on the north arete making for a spectacular summit. Wow!

Still a lot of snow after you branch off towards Crater Lake. We weren't sure about going up the snow without gear so we dicked around and then jumped in the lake before finally heading up. My two partners turned back when it got "scary." I was definitely not on Solo Flight, going up a chute directly towards the peak, but wasn't hard despite going up next to snow and climbing C4+ near the top. But then the weather finally turned and had to race down just 100' from the top.

Backpacked over from Brainard and down to Grand Lake. Loved the whole route. The down climb was intense! No rope for a rap :( Not another person on the mountain.

Climbed the Solo Flight route from camp at Crater Lake. Continued on to "Iroquois" via the spectacular Mohling Traverse. Eight mile backpack out afterwards made for a grueling day. I'd been wanting to visit Lone Eagle Cirque for several years and it did not disappoint!

Climbed with my friend Bill. Beautiful weather, a fun climb, awesome views. Route finding can be tricky, especialy on the 4th class (more like 5.2 to 5.3) downclimb section. I've read some horror story trip reports on it, and they all have descriptions of this part that appear to me that they missed the right area. There is a photo posted on this page with a drawn route, but it too is a little to the south of the proper down climb area. I'll post another later sometime. But an awesome climb nonetheless, that I'll probably do again sometime!

Met Mike Mc (below) before they started their climb. Glad you guys made it and had a good time!

Great climbing and an enjoyable approach from Brainard Lake! We missed the 5.4 chimney on p11 and climbed something much harder. If you ever climb this route, I cannot tell you where this final 5.4 chimney is, but it is certainly not the chimney/crack system with the large overhanging flake directly above the end of p10. I would put this puppy at least at 5.9. Anyway, we downclimbed solo flight and reached Crater Lake around 7:30 pm. We then proceeded to hike back to Brainard, becuase we did not want to spend another night in the cold, as we did not carry a tent or sleeping bags to cut weight. After taking a few short, cold naps along the way, we arrived at the TH around sunrise. What a great adventure!

What a summit! It took longer than expected, but was well worth it.

Climbing companions, Bill Forrest, Charlie Brown, Dave & Jim Disney all romped around on the summit ridge. I wanted a rope and when someone asked me to turn around a little more for a summit photo the story goes that I said something like "just take the ----ing picture." A spectacular place and a memorable time.

Great solo climb. Easy for its grade. Crux pitches are high up but solid climbing. Easy descent. Did it car-to-car in 6 hrs. Would take much more if you roped up.

First I somehow lost my headlamp, and ended up trying to hike up to Crater Lake without light, feeling my way with the walking stick. Eventually I gave up and slept right on the trail. An hour later, Andy came up the trail and we just decided to camp there. Just after falling a sleep, I awoke when a giant porcupine was munching on my cup-o-soup. Not much sleep that night.

The next moring, Brenta came up the trail and met us. We then climbed to the summit. It was a good climb, but took longer than expected.

Climbed with Scott Patterson and brenta. It was a fun scramble in an incredibly beautiful setting. See a movie I shot of the day here.

Pretty sure I made up my own route on this one. The climbing was easy to mid- 5th class broken up by 3rd and even 4th... but you can follow a decent line up to the ridge and then follow the ridge to the summit. Don't overestimate the rock here - even granite breaks, on occasion!

Fast hike in from the trail head. Route finding was a bit difficult and it was easy to get into very nasty terain. Reached the summit after searching for the correct route.

Beautiful route. Inspite of the low-grade climbing, it's not to be underestimated. I'll be posting a route section for the North Face to this very soon.
