Route Climbed: North Face Couloirs Date Climbed: September 7, 2002
Climbed the Noth Face couloirs withs some people from Denver Colorado Mountain Club. Nice group of people. I did not mind the loose rock in the couloir but the guide books should suggest helmets on this one. The mountain looks intimidating from the saddle but once you get closer, it is fine.
Route Climbed: North Ridge Date Climbed: August 11, 2002
Good climb. I stayed on the north ridge instead of entering the "bowling ball" class 2 chute. The rock was fairly solid and pleasant. It felt more like climbing than trudging up loose scree. There are several variations up the north ridge with minimal route finding needed. Great views of Blanca!
