Unprepared for the 70* snow headwall Date Climbed: Jul 20, 2009
Enjoyed beautiful weather (until the hike out), but we were stymied by about 70 ft of 70 degree snow on the route. Found out afterward that there are alternate options to get around it, but we didn't see anything that looked appealing. Another day...
Route Climbed: Northwest Route/West Route Date Climbed: 18 July 2005/12 Sept 2002
Attempted the North Ridge in a day. This plan turned out to be too ambitious for a single day push. Climbed the West route via the Illabot Creek approach. This route is not recommended due to the steep continuous brush.
"Got tight last night on absinthe and did knife tricks. Great success shooting the knife into the piano. The woodworms are so bad and eat hell out of all furniture that you can always claim the woodworms did it."
