wow this was a long day...left car between 3am/4am... nice approach.. lots of
snow at base... managed to navigate it with no axe and trail runners.. the climbing
on this peak was stellar to say the least.. 2 raps down the backside saved some time
we traversed over and summitted the adjacent peak ...summit looked like a tooth..
cant recall the name... will be back to bang out the whole traverse at some point...
the sawtooth range is magically beautiful, the wildflowers were going off... incredible! climbed with alex.

Camped at lake at 9,800'. Used crampons to get to start. A lot of loose rock coming down from climbers above. Crux is the very last move above the dihedral and small chimney where you will want to haul your packs.

A slog to the pass, did some fun class 3 as we moved toward the East to ascend, back down for a steak and beer at Twin lakes.

car-to-car in a day via the north arete.
The view from the top was a little hazy due to the recent fires.

Did the 5.9 variation at the bottom; the rest of the usual route was better quality rock, though, so is best to skip this variation and get up high quicker - leaves more time for skiing back down.

Hey Brian,

Sorry I missed you a couple weeks back. I went up there Sunday (9th), I went up and down the East Couloir. Glad I wasn't really there for the skiing, it wasn't so good.

Climbed with Kovarpa. Whatever we did, it certainly wasn't the 5.4 / 5.5 route the guidebooks describe. I took my 1st fall (nothing big really) at the beginning of P1 and that took the wind out of my sail. After that Pavel all the way to the summit. Nice climb, but I guess I wasn't in the right state of mind for it.

for a summit of the Matterhorn Peak as one of my partners showed up way out-of-shape for a five day trip to the Palisades. Wish the East Couloir would have been in shape, but the SE ridge ascent-SE face descent treated me just fine. Great approach that has a little bit of everything.

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!
