It's always a classic if it's better than you expect! Great day, bigger than I thought. A routefinding error made it a bit longer, and that last ridge was more than I expected, but fun when it was done. Great day, great scrambing parter who remained game throughout the day.

Nice climb. Another 5.4 lead for me with my new light alpine rope. Would have been more fun if my partner wasn't sick. Still hate the south slope descent--endless scree and sand on granite yuck.

paisajeroamericanogreat climb  Sucess!


up piute pass, across humphreys basin, and up the ridge - I scrambled up the left side of the ridge, but cody could not make it - the ridge was great, then a bit of a slog up top, followed by a challenging summit problem - unfortunately, I had to return to the west ridge to pick up cody, but some of the more direct chutes looked like good decent routes - overall, a real nice climb

As usual, had a great day in the Sierra under beautiful skies with a beautiful partner! As for the route.....waaay overated. Classic? Perhaps the ridge and a small section in the beginning but the junk in the middle reminded me of Laurel....loose and chossy. People are missing out on an overlooked classic in Darwin Canyon: the NE Ridge of Mendel...."spicy Norman Clyde 4th class", sustained in nature and much cleaner rock...all the way to the summit. Check in the box.

Did the SE Face with perfect weather eventhough we followed a stinky mule pack the entire trail. Think I smelled shit the whole climb as well. ? Fun ridge, old approach shoes, and bullshit descent. Great views of Desolation area.

The last couple hundred feet of this route are enjoyable and it has its own distinct summit block.

Climbed some weird version of the SE Face route (my bad route finding skills) with Tony and ET. The lower part of the route wasn't anything special until we came upon the final summit ridge and the windy conditions, WoHoo! Now that was spicy fun! Descended the South Face gully back to Piute Pass trail

Date Climbed: Mar 25, 2007


Climbed the north couloir as a day hike with Dave German and Brad Mastros. Great snow conditions on 3/25/07. This is a fun, early season snow climb (about 40 degrees, 1000 feet long). You top out 100 feet below the summit.

Route Climbed: SE Face

Climbed with Mark Ingram (ming21). Even though we brought a 50m rope and a light rack, we ended up soloing the route.

I went up first and tried climbing the left hand crack but the rock was wet from water running down it and had to downclimb. Then, I tried climbing the face in the middle between the left & right hand cracks and it worked although there was definitely a spicy traverse move to get back to the main "wet" left hand crack. Mark thought this was the crux of the route. After that it was all enjoyable class 3/4 climbing and surprisingly sustained (especially near the top).
