wmollandFrom South Guard  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 2, 2014


Cruised up South Guard first from Lake Reflection before going up the west slope/chute of Jordan. The top few hundred feet of the chute are super loose but the rest is no big deal. We took our climbing shoes and did the friction route rather than the step across. Anyone who has experience climbing friction should have no problem, but you definitely need climbing shoes to do this route. A super fun scramble at the end and a way cool summit block. You can see pretty much everything from the top. Awesome peak!

Date Climbed: Jun 28, 2014


Well not really a traverse as we got tired of rib hopping and dropped a 1000 feet before climbing up the sandy chute to where the fun began. The summit block was super cool and definitely intimidating. With Wes Tanner. Pictures and story

A nice, direct route, but very cold this time of year. The step-across is fun, and not as scary as rumored. Trip report

Matthew HollimanTough day  Sucess!

This whole day was pretty much one long, continuous reminder of why I should acclimatize before heading above 13k. I started losing my balance and falling over somewhere around the tarns below Genevra, threw up en route to the summit of that peak, and lived with a headache until back down below Lake Reflection.

The summit block on Jordan is intimidating as hell. I don't know whether I could go back and climb it unroped now, even knowing that the move is technically easy. Glad I brought the (very) short rope and harness...

Excellent view of Table and Thunder from the summit of this one.

A long 19.5hr day with Matthew climbing both Genevra and Jordan from Roads End. Jordan's summit block is one of the finest in the Sierra. Trip Report
