Moogie737Triple Traverse  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 16, 2009


The route to the saddle between Sunrise and Dromedary is, indeed, steep. Maintaining the north side of the chute helps to avoid the block at the very narrow notch. Although about the same climb re distance as the one to Twin Peaks, this one is definitely more challenging and strenuous. Brent W. and I made it up in 3+37. This is my 2nd time on the top, the previous one being on 8-3-03 from the Lake Blanche. #3 as part of Triple Traverse in June '07 and fourth time on 8-23-07 as part of Cottonwood Ridge to south end of Sundial ridge. Fun! 5th time at the summit was a part of the entire Cottonwood Ridge run with Dennis, Matt & Lana. The ridge run took 12 hours which included the east Twin Peak (from Broads Fork, then west to east to Alta). #6 on May 6, 2008 as part of the famous Triple Traverse. #7 as part of 2nd Cottonwood Ridge run on July 19, 2008. #8 Triple Traverse 5-16-09. #9 Tanner's Triple Traverse 5-7-10 w/ Joe Bullough; broke trail the entire route. #10 on 7-3-10 as part of 3rd Cottonwood Ridge run. W/ WMC. #11 7-17-12 W/ Brent via BF saddle, Sunrise, this one and eastward on ridge to Blanche Peak. Strong southerly winds. #12 8-11-12 Part of Cottonwood Ridge traverse with WMC members Brad & Sam.

--August 22, 2006. East ridge from Lake Blanche. Continued east to Peak 10,910 with some interesting scrambling on the ridge. Goats spotted multiple times. Great day!
--July 2002. Came from Twins and Sunrise...descended to Lake Blanche as lightning flashed and rain poured. An exciting end to an amazing day.

Did this with my friend Scott I believe in 97 and also did Sunrise/Twins. Did again 8/25/07 with Marauders. Had a perfect day and the peak and route all to ourselves. I should have left the trail runners at home though.

Numerous ascents. This is an interesting scramble no matter which way you approach it, East, West, North or South. Like many nearby peaks, this one is crawling with emerging Ladybird Beetles (ladybugs) in late spring.

Joe Bullough and I bagged Mt Dromedary after climbing Storm Mtn, the BF Twins, and Sunrise Pk on our way to the Cottonwood Ridge, which turned out to be a day with 9,000 ft of elevation gain!

I hiked from Broads Fork to the saddle between Dromedary and Sunrise. The view from the top is the best. You can see much of Little Cottonwood Canyon and down into Lake Blanche. Last time I was there we had to descend the ridge during a rain and lightning storm which was quite interesting.

PellucidWombatRoute Climbed: Triple Traverse via Ferguson Canyon Date Climbed: September 18th, 2004  Sucess!


Ascended via Storm Mountain and the full Robinson Ridge, then continued on to do Broads Fork Twins, Sunrise Pk, and Mt Dromedary before descending via Lake Blanche. A storm front was moving in, and we encountered steady 20-30mph winds with 40-50mph gusts.

Been here many times. Today was quite sketchy with decaying cornices, water ice, and a ferocious ridge-top wind.

Nice peak, beautiful scramble :) Great way to end my variation of the Triple Traverse - came up Broad Fork Twin Peaks from Lisa Falls in Little Cottonwood Canyom (class4-5?), did the traverse, and descended down Broad Fork

A variation of the usual route from Lake Blanche. Nice off-trail hiking until final 500 feet of scrambling up tricky slabs with some exposure and serious routefinding. Typically great view of peaks in this area, particularly astounding view down Tanners Gulch.

I climbed this peak at least once a year. I have climbed it both in winter and summer. Early spring is my preference with consolidated snow. It is a great training hike for higher peaks.
