kraymesNE Face  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 27, 2009


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.

Princess Buttercup

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.

Dayhike via the NE Face route with 3 others. We caught alpenglow views from Finger Lake, and we never saw a single cloud the entire day. No one else was on the route, and there was negligible wind on the summit. AND we were back down in time for dinner and beer.

NE Face with Tommi, Rob, Stefan, and Marina. We opted for the glacier start which required an exposed step across the 'shrund.

Did as a day hike. Outstanding views and weather made this a great climb. Saw 4 other climbers on the NE Face and only 1 had a helmet, pretty crazy with all the loose rock.

Camped at the beautiful Finger Lake Friday night, then started hiking the mountain Saturday morning via the NE face. Summitted around 11:45 with gorgeous weather and views! Great climb!

WobbyFarquar Route  Sucess!


We took the sketchy-ass Farquar Route, blindly ignoring Secor's warnings about "lose rock", "easy to get off route", and "for experienced climbers only". It was pretty bad, not so much because of exposure or loose rock or difficult route-finding, but because of a huge buildup of all three. Still, we found what I am pretty sure was the correct route, and made the top.

Really enjoyed this climb, the approach was a bear, especially in the moraine section, but the climb itself (NE Face) is absolutely spectacular. Thanks Jared and John for the great route finding, I'm glad I didn't cash in the chips at 13k. Little long for a day hike, back in LA at 4am...

Started up the 3rd class ledge, but turned uphill too quickly and missed Secor's chute. Not too big of a problem, but the top steepens to 4th class for about 20 feet before joining the main chute.

Went car-to-car from Glacier Lodge in 10.5 hrs, 5.5 to the summit. Finger Lake is gorgeous, and the summit is cool, but the rest of the route was unpleasant.

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!
