Route Climbed: Persis to Index Date Climbed: Aug. 6, '05
It was a long day. Really liked the tarns along the way. Just a bit of route finding and veg belays. The gully taking you through to Anderson Pass is obvious. That was a question I first had. No problem.
Route Climbed: West Route (Mt. Persis - Mt. Index Traverse) Date Climbed: October 20, 2001
Climbed the West route along the ridge from Mt. Persis to the summit of Mt. Index. Descended the East Route to Lake Serene which required 1 short rappel and a lot of "brush belays" to descend from the ridge to the boulder field above the Lake.
