bechttSE Ridge  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 28, 2016


First peak on the Black Divide trip with Tommey. Hauled the packs up to the crest from Ladder Lake, dropping them to climb McDuffie, and then followed Steve Eckert's route to Wheel before camping below Rambaud Pass (the lake is there!). Climbed Devils Crag before hiking back down and out the next morning. One heck of an adventure. BTW, the Ladder Lake drainage is so much nicer than Rambaud drainage. Pictures

mrchad9North Ridge  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 3, 2011


I'd been wanting to spend a weekend in Ionian Basin for a couple years, and finally got my chance. After heading up Charybdis on the morning of day two, I cut over pass 12180 to reach the north ridge of McDuffie. The route finding was interesting, but every time I came to an impass a few moves up or down 20-30 feet kept me on track. At the end the broad chute was completely filled with icy snow, but some class 3 moves on the steep rib to the left made it easily bypassed. Really enjoyed this peak.

mhengstClimbed Western Spur and Descended Northern Ridge  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 12, 2009


Hiked in from Sabrina Basin over Echo Col the day before and camped at Lake 11,828. Came from Charybdis and climbed the 3rd class western spur amid a minor bout of hail and rain before descending the northern ridge under the threat of a rather nasty looking storm to the east. Route finding along the northern ridge was a challenge.

Long dayhike with Bob and Rick. Very, very cold (in the 20s at South Lake when we started), with fresh snow in the morning, and again in the evening as well. I'd wanted to climb this one for a while--glad to finally tick it off...

With Matthew and Rick, this was one of the longest Sierra dayhikes I have done. Starting from South Lake, we did about 35mi and 10,000ft of gain. Dang. Trip Report
