Climbed this somewhat serious route with The Chief and Derick. The upper pitches are fantastic, solid 5.10 moves on clean rock. It was shady, breezy and cold.

Day 2 of the 2005 Sierra Challenge. Fun scramble. Climbing on the face reminded me a lot of Middle Pal.

Climbed this with Bob Burds Sierra Challenge posse. A fun scramble on fairly solid rock - definitely much better than the NW Ridge!

Part of the same group as the three entries below. The ascent was really fine scrambling. Tagged Royce as well. Trip Report

Day 2 of the Sierra Challenge. Really enjoyed the class 3 scramble up the chute. Wanted badly to hit Royce peak from the saddle separating the two, but rain chased us down.

Climbed this as part of the group involved in the 2005 Sierra Challenge organized by Bob Burd. Came up via Royce Pass and the Royce Merriam saddle. Great views and a fun climb. Started to rain lightly as I was descending but let up by the time I got back down to Pine Lake.

The first stop on a Merriam/Royce/Julius Caesar dayhike out of the Pine Creek TH. I didn't look at my map/compass too carefully and climbed what turned out to be the Northeast Face rather than the East Face as I'd intended. Fun scramble, a bit on the spicy side in places, scary in one or two others when I got cavalier with my route-finding. It took a bit of searching to find a reasonable exit to the summit ridge at the headwall at the top.

What started out as an ill-fated off route start may have been very well on, unfrequently climbed, route. Great pitches up higher with adventourous 1st-3rd pitches.

We attempted this route but were short on time and talent and had to bail. We found it to be extremely LOOSE on the first few pitches we did (to the base of the first tower).



Maybe the North Buttress has better rock, but this thing is treacherous!

I climbed this from Meriam Lake via the Southwest Ridge, which is a fun class 3 route! Great views to the south of Glacier Divide and the Humphreys area.



Meriam Lake is beautiful.



It was a great way to celebrate my birthday!

Climbed the peak after summiting the Royce Peak. Nice class 2-3 scrambling with the great view to the Humphreys Basin.

Fun climb from Merriam Lake. Lots of snow on the approach. This peak is situated right in the middle of one of the best parts of the Sierra, and it's one of my favorites.

Exciting snow climb to saddle, average scramble up ridge. Wonderful views with a fresh dusting of snow on surrounding peaks.
