soslawRoute Climbed: North Ridge Date Climbed: October 22, 2005


Climbed the north ridge solo via Treasure Col on an absolutely beautiful Fall day. Conditions in the Col were brittle water ice covered with sugar snow from a recent storm. Stayed on the crest of the ridge all the way to the summit. Great 3rd class rock. Because the knife edge section gaining the summit was partially covered with snow, I traversed it chevalier style (one leg draped over each side of the ridge).

Solid snow at 10,500 ft. Merciless 2-3 ft sun cups from there up to 11,800 ft. Snow and lightning storm while on the 3rd class ridge.

Our route was the north couloir, which is not described by Secor. It is the snowfield on the west side of the north face, under the "33" on 7.5' topos. Very nice access to summit if it is snow-filled and the entire 3rd class ridge is not your thing . It gains the ridge about 250 ft below the summit. The remaining ridge would be great fun in dry weather! Descended the SE Slope.

Like Matthew, I found the climb up to Johnson the best part of the day. Gilbert from the southeast is more or less forgetable. Trip Report

Gilbert-Johnson dayhike out of South Lake. The North Ridge was a great scramble, made a bit spicier in one or two places thanks to a few inches of fresh powder from a storm the day before. I'd like to go back to do the Johnson-Goode traverse some time.
