rhyangSwiss Arete  Sucess!
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.

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!

Great trip, We left from camp at Mt Gayley, crossed the intense scree fields, summited, then back to camp, packed up and made it back to the car in one very long day.

Beautiful morning, but it clouded up by 11a. Light snow, hail, and some rain, we were rapping in the rain and got a rope stuck, started to sound like an epic, but then it all came together.

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.
