FensterschlechterNE Couloir  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 29, 2014

Fensterschlechter

The couloir caught my eye the previous day while relaxing by Fifth Lake. It turned out to be a delightful snow climb followed by a seemingly endless ridge. Descended a beautiful snow chute east towards the outlet of Sam Mack Lake (frozen), eventually made my way down to the Sam Mack Meadow and trail. Good times.

Long ridge, and a bit loose, but still a fun climb.

Climbed the peak via the West Ridge with Vitaliy. Careful routfinding kept the route at cl. 3 to cl.4-? Incredible exposure, and great scrambling! I couldn't tell which summit was the highest and couldn't locate the register, so I climbed the three obviously highest summits.

This was a better peak than expected, with a fun chase along the summit ridge over numerous false summits to the hightpoint. Day 8 of the Sierra Challenge. Trip Report

8 on top for Day 8 of the 2008 Sierra Challenge. The descent felt longer than the ascent.

I did a similar thing, gluballs, I arrived at the top of the southeast face thinking I was at the summit. "Oh sh*t!" I thought as I saw the true summit in front of me at least 200 feet away. I had to make my way along a knife-edge ridge with incredible exposure, then drop down and around on very loose rock. To get to the summit I tried going around the north side but it was fifth class. The south side had a very exposed third class traverse to the summit block.

Not sure if I can consider what I did a "summit." It looked like the true summit was a short class 5 ridege traverse across (50ft north at about the same elevation) from the peaklet I ended up on. Anyway I didn't have a map and didn't know much about the peak. My intended goal was Mt. Winchell but due to a late start I had to improvise.

Kerstin

I climbed Mt. Robinson solo from Sam Mack Lake on a very hot July day. The Southeast face was exposed and exciting, with fairly solid rock until near the top. I was the only person to sign the summit register in two years and narrowly missed getting to see the original summit register signed by Norman Clyde. (It had been taken by a Sierra Club member for "safe keeping".) The view of the Palisades from the peak was amazing!



Descended via a gully on the east side of the mountain, which was horrendously loose!
