Route Climbed: West Ridge Date Climbed: July 11, 2004
After reaching the Wright Lakes basin from Tyndall I decided to not attempt to climb to the Barnard-Trojan saddle via the west chute since it looked like a loose garbage chute. Instead I crossed the basin and headed up the to the W. Ridge. Gaining the ridge was fun cl. 3. Great view from the top.
Route Climbed: Southwest Slopes Date Climbed: August 2001
We began our climb late in the afternoon--3 p.m.--from Wallace Basin. Had a great hike to the summit but had to hike back cross-country in the dark on a different route, which was challenging. Still, we had a great time!
