Date Climbed: Sep 14, 2014
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.

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.

Via Yellow Brick Road from Sam Mack Meadow. Bluebird summit day with no wind. Stunning views of Sill and the Palisade crest. The scramble from Glacier Notch to the summit is great fun with mostly solid rock and many low-stress options for easy low-fifth moves (per Bob Burd's suggestion). Highly recommended on its own, or in combo with Sill if you're fast.

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

Flew out west to meet SPer Kevin Trieu before a planned trip to Peru later in the summer. Had the intention of doing North Pal via U Notch but extremely heavy winds caused plans to change. Ended up wandering up Gayley, not following any route, from the col. Some mixed climbing, some snow, some easy 5th class rock. Eventually made it to the summit in the afternoon. All in all a fun day and a nice consolation.

Only a few short 5th-class sections on the ridge, plus 4th class getting on and off the ridge to avoid obstacles. Still a bit slow -- about 2h20 from Temple.
