My first real friction-slickrock/crappyzionrock climb. It was a bit challenging for a big hiker guy, especially since we free climbed the thing, but everything went smoothly. Thanks to my partners, cp0915 and Mark, for being great teachers.
05/21/05 - Exceptional views. Disappointingly short, and much easier than I'd anticipated. Solo'd the entire route with my partners Mark and Mike. The S and SE faces of nearby West Northgate Peak, which we did afterward, were much more difficult. All in all, a great day.
* Note: Greg D is right about the attack ants!
05/05/07 - Returned with Dow and Carsten and did the 5.5 variation of the east ridge in the afternoon after a fun climb (in the snow, no less!) of Pine Valley Peak a couple hours earlier. Saw the signatures of Alois Smrz and Brian Hughes from the previous weekend in the NGA register.
06/15/08 - Traversed the mountain with DB, Ram and Little Ram.
