Third peak of the day; all part of the 2007 Sierra Challenge. Rick Kent and I came from Twin Lakes to The Doodad (via the Polemonium Col), over to The Dragtooth and ascended via the NW Face (3rd/4th class) of the Matterhorn. Descended the SE slope to Horse Creek for the return leg back to Twin Lakes. Beautiful day!

Ascended with Mike H. as a day trip and scout out for a potential visit to the North Arete. Guide books are right, we'll do that as a two-dayer if we pull the trigger on it! Great weather, superb views down to Lyell and up to Sonora Pass area.

Date Climbed: Jul 8, 2007


We (+Kris) climbed something on North Arete and I really enjoyed it but it was harder than 5.5/5.6, more like 5.7/5.8. Great time!

Date Climbed: Jun 25, 2007


Headed up the mostly snow-free and very loose east couloir from Twin Lakes. The climbing was good and so was the day. I didn't want to get off the summit everything was so beautiful and perfect, but eventually I descended via horse creek pass.

Date Climbed: Aug 13, 2006


Inspiration is found
In soft snow and towering rock spires,
In fleeting shadows of clouds,
Not in the ramblings
Of some mediocre writer.

mow10N Arete to Double Dihedral (oops)  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 14, 2006


Last pitch of Double Dihedral is one of the best pitches ever. Dihedral curves, pinches off, step to a white face with a 5.8 vertical crack system up to the tip of the pyramid....awesome.

hockeymanNice relaxing trip - North Arete  Sucess!


Had planned on 4 days - nice easy trip. Made it up from Twin Lakes in an easy day. Set up camp by the small lake. Summited the next day. No issues. Did the North Arete. A bit hard to find the start. Kicked back in camp on Day 3 and hiked a bit. Decided to hike out that afternoon.

MichaelJEast Couloir, 5.6 variation
Date Climbed: Feb 17, 2007


Adam and I postholed up to 8.4k (snowshoes in the car) for a winter attempt on the N. Arete. Twin Lakes was pretty dry but a recent storm had left a couple of feet of unconsolidated snow higher up. Ditched the rack and rope at camp and postholed another 4k feet the next morning, leaving the tent at 3am, on the summit by 10. Climbed the E. Couloir and ridge, soloing some 5th class rock to keep things interesting. Couldn't find summit register under the snow. Beautiful weather.

KevinEldonMissed the trail, sunk in the snow
Date Climbed: Nov 18, 2006


Didn't make the summit. I missed the trail hiking in from twin lakes and rambled through forest some boggy meadows and then took the wrong chute up toward Horse Creek pass. The snow was 2-3 feet deep and way too soft in the drifts at 9000 feet and the chute I picked was a very very bad choice. Oh well... it was a beautiful day and beautiful set of mountains.

mlarkin2002Failed attempt due to weather
Date Climbed: Jul 31, 2006
Rained / snowed to scare a group of four of us away from the peak. We turned around at Horse Creek Pass.
