Pitches 1 and 2 were ho-hum. The start of pitch 3 to me was the crux and the most fun: steep with some stemming. The crystal section was "dazzling," but easy climbing (and loose).

Climbed the variation mentioned in ST guidebook with my brother. Skipped the South Summit due to incoming thunder storms.

We did this the day after Bear Creek Spire. My partner was in a foul mood all morning but the crystal pitch healed him...

What a beautiful climb and so much snow to wade through to get to the base! The crystal pitch was blindly bright.

A fun little climb, but have no idea whats so amazing about this crystal pitch...I guess it is kind of cool that the rock is different, but not that big of a deal. Short approach is what I liked the most. Couldn't get much pro into that dihedral before the end of the crystal, but the climbing wasn't hard..

HyadventureSome variation of the North Arête  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 24, 2011


I climbed some variation of the North Arête. The crystal pitch scared the $hit out of me because it was so chossy. No solid places to place gear and my belayer was right at the bottom of the chute. I thought the summit pitch was by far the most solid and fun.

A fun little 3 pitch climb with a short, fun ridge traverse to the summit. Very enjoyable.

Date Climbed: Sep 11, 2010


so I couldn't pass off ticking off one of the routes listed in Croft's guidebook :-). Led the first and third pitch of the N Arete & simul-climbed to the summit. The first pitch really felt like 5.5 to me, and I almost climbed through the crux before placing my first piece of pro.

The crystal pitch is what makes this climb truly memorable, though the ridge traverse actually seemed like more fun than the climb to gain it!

Descended the S Ridge, taking a difficult line (cl. 4-5). Then I realized I left my sneakers on the summit, so I climbed up and down an easier line (cl. 3).

Did anyone else find a traverse to a face climb near the top of the second pitch? It was AWESOME!

Fun little route, worth it just to trip out for a while in the crystal pitch! Way cool.

Climbed it with Allison. I led the first 2 pitches and Allison led the quartz crystal pitch. This was Allison's first Sierra rock climb. Fun times!
