Up the NE Couloir to Point Powell and then over to Point Wesley and Point John. Couloir was just barely in perfect condition for my short aluminum crampons and small ice ax. Enjoyed the ridge over to Point John, had to do it twice to get back to Mount Thompson in the afternoon.

Found 1/2 an arrowhead on the Powell plateau (left in place)... I guess that Indian got the first ascent

Made it up chute on day 7 of SC2010. Used ice axe, crampons, and trekking pole on steep snow. Above snow was loose dirt and rock, but I made it to plateau summit. Long day (15 hours)making it back to car (Sabrina Lake Trailhead) at 9PM. Forgot to apply sunscreen, so ended up with sunburned face.

See Bob's post. Lots of fun with Bob and Matthew. The longest/steepest snow field I had climbed at that point. Not as bad as I thought.

Climbed the NE Couloir on Pt. Powell, strolled over to Pt. Wesley, then traversed along an enjoyable class 3 ridge to Mt. Powell with Bob and Glenn. Descended to Echo Lake and back through some beautiful country to Lake Sabrina. My last day of the '06 Sierra Challenge, as I had to return to China for work for a couple of weeks. Bummer. :-(

Yes Mark, you missed out on a good one. Turns out the traverse from Pt. Wesley to Pt. John was the best scrambling all day, and some of the finest on the 2006 Challenge. Trip Report

Climbed this peak on the 3rd day of the Sierra Challenge. Ascended via the NE Couloir (fun) and descended the SE Face (sucked) after tagging Pt Wesley. Apparently Bob Burd found a fun class 3 traverse to Mount Powell and I'm kicking myself for not following him!

A great spring couloir climb! A stunningly beautiful approach and incredible views from the summit. Don't miss this one.
