bennovakRoute Climbed: North Rib Date Climbed: July 9th 2005  Sucess!


Started out as a day hike attempt to get at Williamson before the goats get it. But there was too much snow in the bowl and on the face and we had some unexperienced climbers in the group, so we bagged Tyndall instead, my 3rd time. Still a long day hike. Still some snow on the top of the north rib near the ridge, but not a problem, will be gone in a couple days.

Very enjoyable scramble. I stayed after climbing NE ridge of Williamson with Kris and Scott and soloed this - good excuse for not descending Shepherd Pass trail at night... 3 hrs roundtrip to the base of the climb.

Very enjoyable ascent on the North Rib (1.5 hours), easy scrambling and decent friction, although we were only on slabs maybe 20% of the time. Snow field at top was much easier than it looked from Shepherd's Pass, but an ice ax was highly useful. Descended via NW Ridge, which took twice the time of our ascent. Then made it back to SP trailhead in 5 hours. Cannot understate how tedious NW rdige descent was.

Great conditions on the North Rib. Slab was dry and very solid. Short 50ft snow field near the top, very sun cupped and easy steps. Did not use crampons, though an axe was comforting. Highly recommended.

Climbed with Jim on the fourth blue bird day of our trip. The summit ridge traverse had a few icy spots and there was a slight breeze but otherwise the conditions were ideal. Signed summit register and spent 15 minutes marvelling how much snow had been dumped on the southern Sierra this year. But for the warm weather our climb of Williamson and Tyndall took place over winter snow conditions. Huge avalanche debris field in Symmes creek.

Dayhiked up Shepherd Creek to Williamson Creek and across Williamson Bowl. Shepherd Creek all melted out and miserable. Endless wildrose tore pants and flesh to ribbons. Summited in blizzard conditions. Hiked out in snowstorm coated with ice. Doesn't get any better for a masochist.

Seems more like class 3 where the NW route joins the summit ridge. Climbed in conjuction with Williamson. Shepherd's Pass isn't too bad, just a long hike!

Great climb -- climbed riblet west of N Rib up to NW ridge. Came down N Rib and granite slabs next to it (good friction for down climbing)

We came up from the Shepards pass camp. Another beautiful Sierra day. This is why God made mountains

As I recall during this time period there was less backcountry traffic. I had been up Shepards Pass a couple of years earlier, but only 2 in our party climbed the peak because of snow and they had the proper gear. 2 years later we summited and I recall only a handfull of entrys in the summit log over that time period.

Very easy, intact class 3. Came all the way from from Sheperd's Pass trialhead in a day. 8500 ft of elevation gain..but I somehow did it with no problem. Made to within 50 ft. of the top. Hail and gnarly lightning scared us off quick.

A very nice climb, the slabs on either side of the rib had great friction. This is probably the easiest California class 3 route I've tried.

While camped at the small lake near Shepherd's Pass I scrambled up the bolder-filled ridge. A few loose ones gave me some scares. Great view of Williamson from the top.

Couldn't find a class 2 route up the northwest side. Descended the North Rib.Junction Peak in the morning, Tyndall in the afternoon, from camp at Shepherd pass. Fine view on top.

Matthew and I went out to dayhike Williamson and Tyndall. While he went to Williamson, I went after Tyndall and Versteeg. The traverse to Versteeg from Tyndall was far more difficult than I had expected. Trip Report

First peak on what would prove to be a long day. This is a very solid route, I can't imagine why people would rather climb the NW ridge. Decended to Wright lakes via south slope, an annoyingly loose talus hop that I will never do again.

Tagged this summit in 1 hour 2 minutes from the base of the rib on the hike out from Williamson Bowl. Fun class 3 slab/rock climbing.

Great route, not at all technical. It was my first 14'er, and when my tripmates told me it would be a long trek in, they were not kidding. Probably not the ideal first 14'er for someone brand new to backpacking. Mosquitoes at Anvil Camp were nasty!

Had a great time climbing up on the crest of the NW ridge (thinking it was the North Rib). As I neared the junction between the NW and W ridge it became difficult to stay on the crest. After a few moves exceeding class 3 I jumped off the ridge to the right and then scrambled up to the gendarme at the ridge junction. I went around this gendarme on the left and then jumped over to the righthand side of the ridge on the way up to the summit. On the way down I climbed on what I later realized was the North Rib.
