Easy after just completing the North Ridge on Kit Carson. Bagged on the traverse to El Diente due to weather.

theREALCarpeDMDayhike from Navajo TH  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 25, 2011


We noticed that Roach added the Rock of Ages trailhead/approach in the 3rd edition. Tried to get there - the road was gated. Given deteriorating forecasts and our schedules, we decided our best option was to dayhike from the Navajo Basin TH. Started at 2:15am. I felt great and was moving fast, but ran into route-finding issues and summitted at 11am. We were hurried off the summit by gathering weather. Got into rain and hail on the way down. Feel fortunate to have squeezed it into a narrow window.

8/27/06 - From camp in Navajo Basin. Traversed from El Diente and descended the standard route.

2/12/11 - Backpacked from Dunton into Kilpacker Basin. Climbed the southwest couloir with a variation near the top to avoid the standard 4th class finish. Lots of fresh snow in the couloir so we roped up and placed pro in the surrounding rock to try to protect against a possible avalanche. Awesome climb!

Amazing summit ridge! The best part! This summit has been the most inspirational of all the mountains I have climbed by far, minus Lone Eagle Peak.

The snow didn't hurt the traverse, and immensely helped the descent -- plunge steps FTW. I didn't get sidetracked much, and it still took me about 1h30. 1 hour would really be cruising.

Did the traverse from El Diente in perfect weather. Hard work, but very rewarding.

Date Climbed: Jul 29, 2009

Brad Snider

After a foggy traverse, ended up climbing Mount Wilson from behind up loose class 4 ledges. Descended correct summit blocks, then went too far west and down north face. Paid for route-finding error with a slide and some cuts, but fortunately that's it. Eventually got back on track before thunderstorms hit.
