MMclimbhighChockstone Route  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 7, 2014


Made it to the summit of all 5 spires this summer. Good times! This route has a historic feel with all of the old pitons and bolts. Easy way to the top, but I probably wouldn't climb it again. Better off on the NW corner or W face.

w/ G-Funk, Labor Day weekend. Great way to end our annual climb-a-thon! NW corner was super fun. Great rock, fun off-widthing, burly & exposed lie-backs. Great day! Thanks, G. Looking forward to our next adventure!

Climbed the NW Corner as part of a 5 summit link up. Crux pitch was a little wet as there is a little pocket of snow still melting out. Doable if you're ok with a runout, wet, 5.7 slab/face section at the top.

A couple of time. Last time with Nick and a guy we met. We made him lead all the pitches since we had already done it. Great climb.

Climbed this wonderful route with Nurse Ratchet on our honeymoon road trip. Possible to walk a #4 camalot in the OW, which is pleasant and awkward. Working on a topo for this page, which will show the undercling pitch as the crux.

Close encounters of the Goat kind on the descent.

Classic Route, one of the best on the road trip!

OMG - what a loose mess. Most holds were quite portable. The last move over the top seemed alot tougher than the 5.7 traverse to the top of the chockstone. Off route? Probably LOL.

Bruce and I climbed this dissapointing route on Saturday. Bruce lead pitch #1, which is a crappy chimney into the trees. Bruce lead the first half of pitch #2 to a ledge, then I lead the second half. Fun pitch. I lead the 5.9 offwidth corner which was really awkward and annoying. The 4th pitch was decent with a short cruxy section. After that it is a scramble (mostly) to the summit.

Decent route but not classic by any means.

West Face (July 2008): Nice route but the crux pitch was a struggle for me...shouldda asked Shirley to lead as she got it w/o trouble on TR....hmmmm small fingers??? Shirley led the upper .10 pitch which was a lot less aesthetic than I imagined it - shallow crack going to seam going to nice but short & low angle section. NW Corner still takes the cake for me (but maybe I'm just bitching since I found this crux hard).

Northwest Corner (Aug. 6, 2005): Stellar route. Perfect rock & great climbing. Quick approach and painless descent. What else can one ax for?

South Face (Oct. 4, 2003): After hearing good things about this little known route from our friends in the Mazamas, my wife and I decided to give this route a shot. Good stuff! Drove up there Friday after work and slept in the truck at the TH. Got a leisurely start at about 10 am and were on route by about noon. This is essentially the rap line that more talented climbers follow on their way down after summitting via one of the classic >5.9 routes. It was fun nontheless with about 4 pitches of mid-fifth class climbing (up to 5.7). We were the only ones on the route (of course) with two other parties coming up the the 5.9 route on the West Face. NEWS has a great, flat, and slabby kind of a summit - not the like the dirty summit of its southern neighbor. Views were spectacular in all directions (except part of the southern skyline is blocked by the slightly taller SEWS) though a bit hazy. There was a big fire going on to the north. We rapped the route - including the fun free air rap off the big chockstone - and were in the car after dark.....heading off for Del Campo on Sunday.

Another fine alpine route on excellent cascade granite. Glad I didn't have to lead the hard pitch.

1st time with M Woodmansee, E Sandbo and other SAC members. Full on conditions, visibilty quite limited. Climbed SEWS and rappeled down N face into notch between SEWS and NEWS. Climbed up S face on snow and ice covered rock. Rappels were interesting especially the one off the chockstone.

Climbed with Paul Bishop. We forgot about the snow in the SW Couloir and had quite a time kicking steps in the hard snow wearing rock shoes.
