climber46Great straightforward scramble  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 21, 2015


Hiked with my family and other hikers to treeline to maintain the 4-person minimum party size. Then I hiked to the summit and my family hiked back down with other hikers. The scrambling was relatively easy compared to some places like the Maroon Bells. I was feeling really good and despite no acclimatization time, I easily reached the 11,600 foot summit. It was 2.5 hours from the pass to the summit and much less time going down. There were plenty of other hikers on the way down to once again form minimum parties of four hikers. There was a reported grizzly bear sighting that day near the trail, so it is wise to adhere to the 4-person minimum party size below the treeline.

NNourianThe jewel of the valley


Climbed this on a clear summer day with two childhood buds. An incredible peak, and surprisingly accessible (i.e. very little technical skill required). It simply took my breath away but that may be the +11,000' altitude

Date Climbed: Aug 10, 2016


Absolutely incredible. We made the summit despite the poor weather forecast; it actually turned out to be a very nice day with just scattered showers and no lightning storms. No views at the top except a huge cornice and no visible boundary between it and the white fog. Amazing mountain in an amazing setting.

Absolutely outstanding views and a solid, solid day. Even if it is the "tourist route". Views down across Larch Valley into the Ten Peaks are unforgettable.

Fun climb up the standard route. Beautiful approach, and a little route finding made for a fun day. Plenty of loose rock and other climbers, so a helmet is recommended. Made good time and summited in just over 3 hours, so decided to climb Eiffel too. Trip Report

Originally intending to do Deltaform and maybe some other stuff, I was put off by the Mandatory Bear Closure sign and formed a temporary Polish-Russian-Ukranian-American alliance to fend off bears and rangers to attempt the standard route in the clouds. I (of course) managed to get off-route, incurring a scree-slog to the south ridge, then a scramble up that to the summit. Trip report.

Hiked up the normal route. Could see all the way to (I think) Assiniboine.

Last minute climb on our last day in the area. Fun way to end an amazing climbing trip, fun scramble, loose stuff but for the area not so bad. Perfect weather!

gimpilator9 Peaks In 9 Days  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 6, 2011


This was the 4th peak of our hiking extravaganza. Temple was our #1 goal for the trip. Eiffel and Temple are probably the most scenic climbs I have ever done up to this point, while Temple was also one of the most fun. We encountered a lot of loose stuff as expected and the gray band wasn't all that hard. This time of year there was almost no snow on the last slope. The only thing we used our axes for was the summit photo.
