Very nice ridge climb; crux was downclimbing into a notch, cruiser otherwise. TR at http://www.anderson.ucla.edu/faculty_pages/romain.wacziarg/climbing/EvolutionJune2014.html

More (soft) snow than expected on the approach, but nice scrambling on the ridge! We had no luck finding the descent route (lots of soft snow on the South side of the peak) so rapped back to the gully and easily descended that.

Climbed in one day from Lake Sabrina. Followed trails to near Hungry Packer Lake, then got on the ridge between Hungry Packer and Moonlight Lakes, which was followed around Picture Peak to the cirque between Haeckel and Wallace. Went up the SE face of Haeckel to the east ridge, then to summit. Loose class 3 rock with some class 3+ moves both up and down. Outstanding views from summit, but couldn't linger long under ominous skies. Got hailed and rained on on the way back.

Climbed NW arete as part of 27 hour c2c climb of Evolution Traverse. Very easy and quick scrambling compared to the rest of Evo. Ridge leading up to the arete from 13,332 is super fun and high quality.

Climbed Haeckel and Wallace from Moonlight Lake. By passed chimney in summit block to make a step around move to get onto the NW side of the summit block. Fun day out.

Over from Huxley on the way out after a long weekend in Ionian Basin. Climbed up the scree slope to the saddle with Wallace, then followed the south ridge straight to the summit. Easy to follow and I really enjoyed the route here, all the way to the summit. Descended more ledges straight down to the lake to the southeast and hiked out.

Solo day trip, 5 hrs to summit. Used crampons to get to the col, but the snow was fairly soft. Started up the wrong ridge, climbed some in the gully, and finally got on the NW Arete. Downclimbing the arete was probably as fun as climbing up it though. Discovered on the way back that traversing the lake-shore on either side of Hungry Packer is not possible. I highly recommend the route!

Soloed this from Hungry Packer a good 20 years ago, descending the E. Ridge. A great day in the mountains.

Class 4, with a 5th class crux move. Day hike traverse to Wallace afterward. Beware of dangerous sliding boulders in the area

This route was awesome!! I definitely understand the 100 Classics standing. The route is typical Sierra 4th, meaning you can choose any number of ways between 4th and mid 5th. I skirted across the snow field kinda high and hit some harder rock (5.6ish), so I think staying low by the lake and then coming up the gully to the notch would alleviate having to climb that harder terrain.

Part 2 of Wallace Haeckel traverse. Route looks pretty loose and crappy from down low, but the traverse and the final climb up Haeckel was the best part of the day. Really fun scrambling up to the summit block. Not nearly as bad as it looks, much better than the slopes around Wallace.

A fun route. The chimney just below the summit was my favorite part. The long painful march back to the TH at Sabrina that evening: Not so much fun, but part of the game, right?

Traverse from Peak 13,332. Climbed up one of the crack system on the headwall to make it interesting. Left too late to do Wallace as well.

Date Climbed: Sep 29, 2007

bearbnz

Hiked in with the intention of climbing the NW Arete, but the approach was choked with steep, brittle ice, and we had only aluminum crampons and mountaineering axes, so the approach was out of our league. Climbed the north ridge for a bit, then traversed over to the east ridge, and scrambled up from there.
