SKIDay Hike to Petit Griffin
Date Climbed: Jan 28, 2011


Excellent outing and great snow/weather conditions with[http://www.summitpost.org/users/pellucidwombat/12893]Pellucid Wombat[/URL], [http://www.summitpost.org/users/shane-rathbun/59854]Wrathbum[/URL] and [http://www.summitpost.org/users/vitaliy-m/62684]Vitaliy Kalashnikov[/URL].
I froze atop the second belay station as the packs made getting through the crux a difficult and prolonged affair. Rapped from the station. My thanks to Shane and Mark for donating webbing and a rap ring to the cause.

Up the standard route- very enjoyable. Snow was very solid crossing the couloir, but not ice yet.

Climbed with Bill Peters and Adam as an alternate peak for the Sierra Challenge-great fun climb, we were front pointing in our crampons on our way up the glacier...in mid August...fun ridge traverse on the way to the summit.

Dayhiked from Mosquito Flat TH. Couloir in good shape. Nice scrambling once I got onto the ridge, but the part coming up from the couloir was loose and sandy. The slog up to the top seemed to go on forever..

Beautiful day and great views of Dade, Mills, Bear Creek Spire's backside, and various other neighboring peaks.

Finally on my 4th try. Rained out before. Summited by myself while Andy Zdon waited below. Almost stopped on the ridge but the route opened up as I kept going. Great view.

Day hiked this peak fro Mosquito Flat TH with Thomas Johansson. This was a great climb but the loose moraine on the approach left little to be desired.

This was an exciting climb for me, but a little nerve-wracking. During the approach, I was looking up at the northeast couloir thinking 'that looks like an impossible vertical wall, but they said it's doable on sp, so i'll give it a try'. As it turns out, climbing the glacier was fairly easy, but the 500' from the top of the glacier to the ridge was pretty hairy (ice on the rocks, with snow on top of it). Crossing 'married man point' up on the ridge wasn't so bad, but I could see why some people wouldn't like it. When I got to the summit, visibility was about 100' with snow flurries and my gloves kept sticking to the metal summit register (as well as the rocks). The weather report said a storm was coming later that day, so I came down quickly, but the real snow didn't come until nightfall. Great peak though, probably the highlight of my week in the high country, even though I couldn't even enjoy the views.
