Tom FralichSwiss Arete  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 2, 2010

Tom Fralich

Awesome climb with a long, beautiful approach. Mary and I were lucky and got a permit for 3 nights. We spent the first night at the great sites between 1st and 2nd lake and then moved up to the moraine camp under Mt Gayley. We climbed the route on day 3 and then spent another night at the moraine camp before hiking out. The climbing on the route was excellent...exposed, solid rock, fun moves...and we got some extra climbing in by starting at the very base of the arete. A good 4 days in the backcountry.

Date Climbed: Jul 13, 2010


We tried to follow the Southwest Chutes route, but ended up creating our own variation. Check the "Southwest Chutes Variation" Route for more details! It was a difficult climb, but a ton of fun! The view was incredible and definitely worth it! Blue skies all day!

Perfect conditions on the North Couloir route. A little bit of ice on the traverse, but easily avoided. A fantastic climb!

Date Climbed: Jul 9, 2010


Climbed with Justin (swapped leads) -- fantastic day, gorgeous scenery, exposure and fun climbing.

Descended the N. couloir, which was pretty dry so no need to rappel.

Spent the night at Gayley Camp (~12200') the night before.

Went up the SW chutes with my 16 year old kid towards the end of a 2 week backpack in the Sierra. Had a great time. Was really wanting to get over to the other Palisades. My kingdom for a rope!

BlackmouthThunderbolt to Sill Traverse  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 8, 2009


Day hiked the Thuderbolt to Sill Traverse in just over 20 hours. Started at South Lake and ended at the shuttle car at Glacier Lodge. Climbed with SPer's Forjan,Kevin Trieu,Dave S,Luis Gijon and Corey Harelson. This was the hardest part of the whole traverse for me, but I knew it was all worth it once I hit the top.

Poor routefinding lead us to an impasse ~50 ft. from the summit. Approached VIA SF Big Pine Creek. Bulletproof ice on the L-Shaped couloir.

Date Climbed: Jul 12, 2009


Jon Meek and I climbed Mt Sill's Swiss Arete. What an awesome route. It's easy to see why this one is an alpine classic. A lot of exposure, high altitude, awesome rock and some of the best views I've seen from any High Sierra peak. Combine all that with perfect weather and a great climbing partner, it was an awesome weekend!
