PellucidWombatRoute Climbed: Razor Fang Date Climbed: June 11, 2003  Sucess!

PellucidWombat

It was the 2nd named peak (3rd including the unnamed) out of 3 named peaks (6 including unnamed) along the ridgerun I did that day. Great route, and the bit of snow left was helpful, although in the beginning crampons would have been nice, but I was able to make due chopping steps with my ice ax.

The time estimate for the Razor Fang was pretty accurate, although I never encountered any scrambling above a class 3 on it. I just traversed partway up the rock, but near the base just above the scree, then scrambled on the fairly solid rock to the ridgeline just beyond the exposed portion, thereyby avoiding the class 4 above and the scree below.

The road had just opened to La Sal Pass this past Memorial Day weekend. Drove to just short of La Sal Pass. I ascended the main west couloir. Snow conditions early in the day were ideal. Used crampons on the ascent up the couloir. (see trip report) It was such a nice day, I made the traverse over The Razor Fang to Mt. Tuk. Beautiful summits with outstanding views, although a little hazy.

Wish I had a map! On the climb I was postholing in 2 ft. of snow, then along a long, slow talus ridge. At the summit storms came up and I made a quick decision to head down the other side instead of across the ridge and then try to go around the mountain. I descended talus to treeline, then bushwacked until I found a trail, then a jeep road with no idea where it went. 14 hours later I was in the desert after dark with no water and 20 miles from my car when a camper took pity on me and drove me back.

We started from Medicine Lake, and followed a drainage path.
