slagerjonWilliamson/Tyndall dayhike  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 16, 2013


Ascended west face via chute (from hell) wish there was a chimney from toe to summit. I thoroughly enjoyed the chimney, by far the best stretch of the ascent! Easy class 3 with plenty of protection(if middle pal is 3, this is 2 at best). The chute was long and arduous, but that was after the approach, Tyndall and the bowl so perhaps with an advanced basecamp it would be more mild. Car to summit in just under 11 hrs. Car-to-Tyndall-to-Williamson-to-pointless flat switchbacks that never end-to-car ; 18 hrs.

All in one very long (19.5 hr) day from the trailhead. Though others have said the Williamson Bowl and the class 2 chute are hellacious and unpleasant, I actually enjoyed both; but the black stain direct and the chimney were definitely the highlights of the trip (if only those sections were longer!). Williamson is a gorgeous mountain and the views from the summit are absolutely stunning.

I'll add that the author of the route description for the West Face route was very thorough and accurate. A printout of it is the only beta I brought with me to the mountain, and never once did I feel lost or confused. Thank you Summitpost!

Thrilled to have actually reached the summit after a failed trip via LTR 2 yrs ago. Enjoyed the "chimney" through the rain and loved the view through the clouds.

Early morning ascent from our camp at Shepard's Pass. Two meetup groups were on Williamson, and there were many successful summits. It was a long day though, up at 3am, and back home in Sacramento around 2am.

Date Climbed: Jul 27, 2012


A solo round trip from a base camp at Shepherd Pass, a total of ten and a half hours. Some 60 to 80 parties have summited this year so far. Hard to tell, because there are two notebooks in the register box; some people sign up only one, others use both. The Chimney was fun after that incredibly tedious and long chute. Found a dark blue Mountain Hardwear jacket with a water bottle in one of its pockets near the "black stain" (left it there). There were no other climbers on the mountain that day, so it must have been left or lost some days earlier (or much earlier?). Trip report.

We had great weather but it still took literally all day. Phenomenal views from the top, exquisite terrain, and really enjoyable 3rd class terrain in the chimney.

Did you need crampons in the chimney still or is it pretty much clear?

Yep, no need to do this one again. Ascended via 'Long Twisting Rib. Just didn't live up to my expectations (sorry, LTR fans.) I thought the more memorable section was the downclimb from the West Horn. One more 14er ticked off.
