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.

climbed again with SPers oldmanmike, ChuckO, and Chuck's buddy Ken. Part way up the couloir, the three headed for the sandy ledges; I continued with my tools to the top of the couloir passing over some formed water ice and then up the rocky chimney. took my crampons off on a very small 1ft by 1ft ledge (should have kept them on and climbed the rock with them). remet the boys and summited with Ken. good climb

4 hrs solo from Mosquito Flats. Great climb, except for the loose crap right above the glacier and before hitting the summit ridge. The airy bridge wasn't quite a knife-edge, only exposed on the right side - i felt cheated! hey, I paid for my exposure on *both* sides! : ]

From Mosquito Flat. Soft snow from Mills Lake, nice glissade back down. We took care exiting the snow onto the sandy stuff, but the ridge went well. Straight-forward short class three. We downclimbed (as the guides say) to bypass the narrow ridge, just walked over the top of it on the way back. Fun!

Soloed. Enjoyed the ridge traverse. Summit warm with spectacular vistas of the Sierras still heavily clad with snow. The descent was a suncup snow slog all the way to Ruby lake.
