RickFNorth Rib  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 23, 2006


We got all psyched up for Williamson the day before but the Tyndall's North Rib turned out to be more of a challenge. Great weather, calm on the summit. A short but sweet glissade on the bottom section of the descent.

Came over after Williamson and started the Rib. Easy and very enjoyable Class 2/3. ~100 ft of steep snow at top we crossed with axes, no crampons. I recommend the Rib over the NW ridge, don't get intimidated by the 3rd class rating!

Date Climbed: Jun 1, 2006


Started out from trail head at 7am. First stream crossing was hi and fast. We removed our boots for this one. All the other crossings were walk overs. Tourist pace, reached Anvil camp around 4pm. Set up camp for the night. No mosquitos this time of year. Out of camp at 8am. Trail was un-clear out of Anvil. We ended up way to the left and had to do alot of boulder hopping. Totally missed pothole. Headed straight for the pass and kicked our steps to the top. Crampons and treking poles only. Brought our axes but never used them the whole trip. As stated before, route finding through Anvil was difficult. Reached top of pass at 1pm. Set off for Tyndall. Cut across snow field to the north of the NW ridge route. Gained the ridge boout 1/3 of the way up. We then crossed the ridge to the large snow chute to the west of the ridge. Kicked our way to the top. Removed our crampons and climbed the rest of the way, 3rd class. On top by 4:15. Took some pictures and headed down. Decended the north face plunge stepping about 1/2 way down then sat on our butts and slid the rest of the way. Reached the pass at 6pm. Slid down the pass, found the trail through Pothole and was back at camp by 8pm. Rested up and left for the car the next day at 9am. Back at the car at 1:15pm. Great trip, counted 59 switchbacks to the first saddle. Perfect weather. Perfect snow conditions for the time of day that we were on them, didn't posthole once. We'll do Williamson some other day.

Were camped at Anvil Camp. Went to Shepherd's Pass and oh my how close the summit looked when you know it isn't that close. But we eventually got there.

Did the North Rib as an alternate peak on Day 10 of the 2005 Sierra Challenge. The north rib is a very easy class 3 all the way to the summit ridgeline.

Climbed with my buddy Brian. Nice summit. Only one tricky part on the NW Ridge, but the footing is solid. We glissaded the NW gully on the descent to save time.

Had to turn around at the top of the northwest gully due to weather. I know, I was so close, but I didn't know that at the time.

Climbed with my 13 year old son. His first 14'r. Decended the south side and around lake WL3645 and back to Shepards Pass. Nice 12 hour day!

Enjoyed the long class 3 slabs with really comfortable holds which got me away from any loose rock. Last day of the Sierra Challenge, did this instead of Junction.

The approach was grueling, the North Rib was great! We made base camp at the Pothole so that we didn't have to haul gear up Shepards Pass.

An enjoyable scramble. Over-estimated the time it would take to summit from camp at the pass, so my partner and I arrived on top at 0420 and had to sit and freeze until near sunrise when we finally gave up and decided to head down without sunrise summit shots.

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.
