Some excitement taking a loose cl.4/5 chute to the low spot on the ridge but the rest was benign. Easy scrambling on the ridge and good trail/approach all of the way to the crappy moraine. Left poor Patrick peakless when he wisely decided not to follow me up the chute; descended the much easier Glacier Notch route in a hurry to avoid inclement weather. Pictures

Lots of fun scrambling on this short blocky route.

Terrific view of both sides of the Palisades from the summit, but should've done Sill instead.

About an inch of fresh snow made moving across the moraine to the notch a little tense; verglas and snow freezing on shoe soles was kind of irritating. Excellent scramble on ridge, staying high and enjoying the exploration. Descend down to Willow Lake and out via South Fork to avoid sliding to my death on northern moraine.

Climbed via glacier notch. The chute from the glacier to the notch was the trickiest part, with lots of loose talus and scree. Very fun and low stress scramble from the notch though.

Climbed from Glacier Notch while waiting for the weather to clear to climb Swiss Arete. Fun little scramble, interesting summit.

Vertigo soul

Gayley wasn't our objective, but we scrambled up the Yellow Brick Road to kill time while weather was keeping us from starting up the Swiss Arete on Sill. Fun little climb on some great rock. Cool summit and great views of Palisades too!

We bailed on the Starlight Butress and shifted quickly to Gayley as "Plan B." It's a quick, fun, scramble from Glacier Notch.

Nice solo morning scramble over Glacier Notch and the SW ridge after being rejected in a storm and snow in the U-notch couloir the day before. The upper half of the climb had an invisible glace of water ice to add spice. While all mountains were hidden in clouds and wind I managed to find a sunny wind protected spot for a nice high breakfast close to the summit.

A quick climb after Mt. Sill. Fun, solid class 3 with great views of Sill's north side and the rest of the Palisades.
