bearbnzNW Arete - Not  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 29, 2007


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.

Date Climbed: Sep 29, 2007


Some sketchy climbing bypassing some water ice at the saddle from the Hungry Packer approach was followed by some short class 4 on the way to the summit. Being soft sucks...

Saw Tina and Rick's entries in the new register.

plumeNortheast face to ridge  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 1, 2007


Seeing that snow was icy leading up to the NW arete and that we hadn't any crampons we instead headed up the moraine to the third arete on the left and went up nice class 4 ledgges to meet the east arete route, then, to the summit. Great climb with the German wife on a peak named for her fellow countryman.

A very enjoyable scramble, though a dusting of snow along the ridge made is spicier than it should have been. Tried to down climb the SE Face, a mistake. It is a nasty maze of class 4-5 chutes and cliffs. Recommend traversing toward the S ridge before heading down into the cirque.

Fun climb. A little looser in spots than I was expecting, but not bad. Perfect weather while climbing, but a few hours later it was overcast and thundering. Ironic that our register entry reads "Not a cloud in the sky".

Pretty easy scramble if you keep to the left, mostly just sandy ledges up to a short class 3 summit block. (Mt. Wallace was much harder!) Airy summit with some nice views.

Dayhiked w/ for Day #5 of the Sierra Challenge. A very nice hike in, although the class 3 was disappointing - just a lot of sandy ledges. The summit area was a little area, and the views were awesome!

Penelope May and I climbed this clean, esthetic arete from our camp at Hungry Packer Lake. We found the glacier very icy and the last few hundred feet a challenge with alluminum crampons and axes. The descent is very loose and steep. But the arete is beautiful and mostly class 4. Recommended.

Climbed this mellow class 3 from a camp at Echo Lakes with Britt Reeves and a couple of other guys whose name I don't recall. Easy cruise.

I climbed the North face to the Northeast Arete with my best friend Gary Hinton ( his last mountain climb - his ashes are sprinkled in Buttermilk Country ). Excellent fun frozen neve climbing followed by fun rock climbing. Also, the first climb I ever attempted to videotape.
