TurtleggjpWest Ridge  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 26, 2017
Dayhike from North Lake via Darwin Glacier and West Ridge with Iris Ma. Long day (17 hours 10 Minutes), but lots of fun. Good route finding above the glacier, a bit loose in places climbing up to the west ridge, but no serious issues. Fun scrambling along the ridge itself, plenty of ducks to guide us. The summit block was a little tricky since we had 2 pieces of beta telling us to go around the right side (Secor, and this website), but I could find nothing that looked good. Makes me wonder if something has fallen down in recent years. The left side was much easier. Just drop down less than 50 vertical feet into the chute, then traverse clockwise around the summit block, climbing another chute with a chockstone at the top. That brought us to the final class 3 moves on the back side that let us finish the climb. Got to do a little glissade down the glacier on the return too!

Date Climbed: Sep 27, 2015


Dayhike from N Lake, started up NE ridge but even after the spicy start a whole lot of it looked harder than class 4, so ventured out onto the east face. Eventually ran back into the top of the ridge and crossed over to gain the summit plateau. Down via N face (the east rock rib, not the ice chute), where I was treated to one of the best sunsets I've ever seen, without even being able to see the sun itself.

Date Climbed: Jul 5, 2014


Climbed with Hakan yalcin, Vladimir ulyashin , and Mike Chen, via Lamarck Col. Most difficult was climbing the nasty chute from Darwin glacier to the West ridge, probably class 4. We belayed the summit pinnacle from the nearest side via a 5.6 finger crack.

Date Climbed: Sep 14, 2009


With Dunbar Carpenter. Camped at Evolution Lake, up & down via W Face gullies. A tribute to Chas Darwin on his bicentenary. Summit block was a bit of a challenge for me, but none at all for Dunbar...

From Tom Ross for the Sierra Challenge. A bit of loose stuff, but mostly fun class 3. The snow couloir would have been better, but I had neither axe nor spikes. Trip report

Date Climbed: Aug 22, 2010


Very enjoyable climb with a lot of variation. Needed crampons for the glacier, route finding not too difficult up to the ridge, and climbing along the ridge enjoyable. The summit block was a nice little problem, went via the exposed route to the right side to reach the top.
