Third attempt - first and second attempts were in late season/low snow years and the first move off the glacier was considerably harder. Much easier this time!

Great route on good rock with the usual slight gravel topping. The entry ledge was easy to spot and the rest was obvious. Perfect weather, perfect climb, perfect day!

Long day from the trailhead up Northeast Face--16 hours roundtrip. Perfect weather but hellish mosquito warfare through Willow Lake area.

Wanted to do Norman Clyde, but the weather was too unstable. Snow was suncupped and soft. Did not need snow gear, but the ice axe came in handy as a cane occasionally :)

Thunder and rain started as we descended the moraine. Excellent camping at Finger Lake.

Day hike from Glacier Lodge. Took the chute (climber's) left of Secor's and got a little confused. Eventually dropped into the correct chute to finish. Pretty fun climb. Didn't need axe or crampons, but poles helped. I will say that the red-rock band that leads up from the moraine and into the main chute looked pretty sketchy; I think the class 3 ledge from the glacier was a better choice (and it's not too hard to find).

DHeuscheleFailed - lost Helmet and black mesh bag with contents
Date Climbed: Aug 21, 2010
I meant to take the Secor route, but ended up far left of the summit (~200 vertical feet below summit and ~450 horizontal feet from summit) with not enough water to attempt a descent and ascent via differt route. Mistake I made was early on the secor route going too far left and ending on wrong side of little ridge.

Real reason for post is that I lost a helmet and black mesh bag with contents between Finger Lake and Middle Palisades glacier. If found please contact me at Hoysch@hotmail.com or 858-312-6020. I can describe contents of black mesh bag to verify that it is mine.

Thanks

I made the exact same mistake yesterday, but somehow found a way around the ridge on the right and dropped down into Secor's to finish the route. Sorry, I didn't see any of your things at Finger Lake; hope you get them back.

With fluffy snow forcing me to the east side of the face. I pretty much thought this was 4th class. I was glad to find Secor's 3rd class ledge exit on the descent.

Except for heading up the wrong chute first, a wonderful climb. Camped 2 nights at the tarn above Finger Lake.

Soloed this back in the early 90s. Bivied at a nice tarn about Finger Lake, tagged the summit and hiked out the following day. Good adventure getting across that moat.
