BradBartickMiddle Pal on 2nd try  Sucess!


Did MP two years ago with LVMC. Great route and pretty straightforward. Got lighteninged off the first attempt solo, but came back with friends and found victory.

Mosquito nightmare (I can't think of a better word to describe it). Above about 12,000 feet however, it was a great climb the most sustained solid class 3 I've done. Only 3 California 14ers left.

Took the ledge from the high point of the glacier and Secor's chute all the way up. Fun route!

Did the east face. It was a beautiful approach passing lots of cool lakes. The glacier was a pain to traverse. We attempted a 5.5 trad route but had to bail b/c of snow. Then went for the normal route which was also hard b/c of snow.

all the big fat marmots pikas you meet along the way. If it weren't for them, I don't think I would have enjoyed this 14er that much.

Up it twice! This mountain can be dangerous if there are several parties climbing it due to loose rocks

Fun climb, once you're in the main shute just bear left and you can't go wrong. Unlike the group ahead of me who went right and ended up skunked. Thank God they went the wrong way, all I heard was screaming, yelling, and rocks crashing down the right hand chute.

Even the "easy" route up this fourteener took a great deal of effort. Sustained class 3 climbing. My most challenging fourteener so far. Thanks to Phil, Joe and Stuart for the team effort.

The glacier turned me back at ~13,000ft. It only had an inch of soft snow with glare ice underneath. There are also open crevases as of Aug 10th. One fall = you are screwed without an axe. My backup plan was the "red and white" route. Unfortunately, I got lost below Finger Lake and wasted an hour. Didn't like the look of the "red and white," so I'll come back another day. Took approx. 11.5 hours RT for this first timer. Expect 12 hours RT if you are fast and know the route.

Day hike, really enjoyed the chute. Looks a lot more challenging from the approach.

Climbed the NE face with four others from SoCal. A very fun climb with solid handholds throughout. We went up the "Main Chute" and came down the "Secor Chute". The Main Chute has solid handholds but loose rock, and the runout is a bit intense. After that the route has some great class 3 climbing for 1,000ft.

Using several trip reports, we stayed completely class 3 or lower. A bit loose but great fun.

Solo from camp at Finger Lake. Lived up to all the advertisment - loose rocks down low, fun ledges, awesome summit views, lots of elevation gain. Used Bob Burd's lower entrance chute instead of Secor's - loose crumbly rock, but a straight forward route to find.

Climbed with Ryan . Great view north -- Mt Agassiz, which we had climbed the day before, was just peeking through between Mt Sill and North Pal. Pictures
