Day hike. Finally made it 22 days later then expected and with the help from Chris from SMC. It was worth the wait as the route was pushing my skills and more people on the route would not have made me happy.

96avs01Secor Chute  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 20, 2008


The moat made entrance to the ledge described by Secor a little spicier than normal (a few class 4 moves). Really enjoyed this route, but would not want to be in any of the chutes during a busy summer weekend!

ditto, went up with squishy. did a lot of the (piss-poor) routefinding on the mountain with a broken finger; so our route meandered a little from established routes. regardless it was a great experience for sure!

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.

skottyGood birthday, 11th 14er  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 4, 1980


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.

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.

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.
