asmrzRoute Climbed: Craig Peer variation to the North Couloir Date Climbed: October 19, 2002


I climbed the North Couloir with the Direct finish on October 19, 2002. Started the climb at 8,200' by our truck. Michael Gordon was with me but felt sick at McGee Lake and turned around. I climbed the gully, which was rock hard water ice. I thought it was steeper than 60 degrees. I guess the more technical it gets, the steeper it gets (in my mind). I did not want to go to the top (have been there before), so I tried to go down via the NW Ridge. At the top of the gully, I could not find the connection to the top of the NW Ridge. From the notch, there was about 100 feet of fifth class climbing up and right. When I got to the top of what I thought to be NW Ridge, all I saw were steeply droping ridges. I could not find the top of the ridge. Anyone knows how to connect this? I downclimbed to the West and had to walk back over couple of cols to the talus above Mc Gee Lake. I had to bivi in the talus as I just ran out of daylight. Reached Michael and the truck at 10:00am. This is really good outing, someone stronger could easily make it RT in a day from the Trail Head.

bearbnzRoute Climbed: Southwest Slope and Northwest Face Date Climbed: June 29, 2002


Climbed with ScottyS from Piute Pass. Of the 20+ peaks I climbed this summer, this was one of my favorites. The approach was good, the climbing was way fun, and the exposure is excellent for a 4th class route. Don't get bogged down looking at route pictures of the Southwest Face, you can go up nearly any of the chutes and come out at the right place.

Did the 1st ascent ( according to Secor ) of the main ice gully with Britt Reeves. The guy with the rope feined illness resulting in our free soloing the gully ( 800', 55 degrees ). Saw bighorn tracks at the top! An excellent ice climb.

Dayhiked with bearbnz on a perfect day. If you stay on rock, the SW face is not too bad. I thought the summit block was VERY cool!

More pics, etc are available on my homepage here.

Day 5 of the Sierra Emblem Challenge 2001. Thunderstorms threatened so I got an early start at 5:20a from North Lake TH, reached summit at 11:00a, just in time for the first crack of thunder. Didn't stay long on the summit! Returned to TH at 3:00p.

The lower 3/4 of the mountain is nothing but loose junk. Once on the NW face, the climbing becomes quite enjoyable, and the class 4 moves are fairly easy.
