NorrisSwiss Arete revisited  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 24, 2007

Norris

Climbed Swiss Arete for the second time. First time was twenty years ago with John Fischer. Great fun climb. Very sad how much the Palisade glacier has retreated over the last two decades.

Hit MS as part of the Palisades traverse last summer. Great exposure and difficult route-finding, but Bruce kept us on course.

finer than fine climb. Simuled or soloed much of it. Beautiful and clean. Now, if only the approach could be a tad bit shorter. Must keep in mind that you are climbing all the while.

Climb Mt Sill on our way to Polemonium Peak. Perfect conditions and the easiest class 4 I have done.

This was my second winter solo attempt. I love the journey, though can't quite make the summit. I'll keep trying!

Up it 4 times! Last was via the Swiss arete. We can down a new way around Temple Crag down to 3rd lake to avoid the icy glacier. That was an adventure.

A long time in the planning, a pilgrimage to the Palisade Glacier before it is entirely gone, and a beautiful day to spend a few minutes on the summit of Sill! Thanks to Joe, Phil, Bob, and Stuart for the team effort.

Long slog at the end of the day. Went down the backside which was a huge mistake. Much better to go back over polemonium and down the backside of the U-notch.

The final peak on our T-bolt to Sill traverse. We were getting pretty tired by this point but it was sure worth it. What a great way to spend a day. The summit views were impressive particularly looking down the Swiss Arete.

3.5 hours to summit from Gayley Camp. Couldn't believe how short traverse and class 4 section were, but they were still fun. L-snowfield was starting to get soft on the descent (9:30 AM) but was still hard enough to make it easy with crampons. Beautiful area and fun climb.
