End of the traverse, 10 hours from South Lake. That knife-edge was awesome.

Climbed this with SPer - Jeff B. We planned to do the traverse, but 70 mph gusts, mild hypothermia on my part, and lingering fatigue from getting our heavy packs to Sam Mack Meadow meant Sill was our only summit. Not a bad one at all though as the climbing was spectacular and the descent was pretty epic.

Awesome route. Would be much more enjoyable with nice snow cover up to Apex. 9th CA 14er.

Climbed the North Coulior. The L-shaped snowfield is currently easy to bypass on the right (crampons not required). Great views from the top. Climbed Apex Peak on the way down.

The approach was not that bad, but my partner start experiencing a sever altitude sickness and we have to abort the ascent part.

Long day with Tom and Augie as he says below. Final peak on the traverse, glad it didn't take long to get to after Polemonium!

Long day doing the Palisades Traverse with Glenn and Augie. Still one of my favorite peaks. The beginning of a long night when Augie's three nights without sleep caught up to him.

Fun climb. It hailed the day before, so the N. face was white and frozen. Also climbed Apex and Gayley as part of a long day hike.

Date Climbed: Aug 24, 2007


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.
