A long day with Mark starting from South Lake, traversing to Polemonium after North Pal, then back to our bivy at Thunderbolt Pass. Glad to get the CA 14ers done, but a tough day thinking about our friend Pat Hadley who was supposed to join us on this trip.

Climbed u-notch couloir and Clyde variation with Reza. Almost killed by rockfall rappelling the couloir. Had done the couloir the year before.

1994: attempt with Doug. Exhausted after 9hr hike to glacier. Henceforth, rode horseback to glacier turnoff.

So Seacor says "go left of large gendarm." But in the distance I see this crack on the right. So I go to the base of this thing and climb it. It was very cool. 10a ish. The problem was it leaves you on a small ledge just to the west side of the large chock stone in the huge chimney. I probably could have broad jumped to the boulder but instead I climbed over. It's like 10' of 10+. No problem except all the holds are vertical no horizontals at 14k. :) Anybody know what this crack is?

Great classic climb up the snow of the U-Notch, then up to the summit ridge and summit. Long day and great follow-up to a failed prior attempt.

Quick stop as we carried on from Thunderbolt to Sill. The overhanging block was a fun little short rap between Starlight and North Pal.

First climbed in August 2008 when a late season and little snow made the U-notch from the front a bad option, so over Bishop pass and up the back. Took the chimney from there, then Polemonium before the decent.

Up the west chute, across the catwalk, and past the two chockstones. Fun route finding on the way to the summit block. A tragic fatal accident the day before (somewhere in the vicinity of the catwalk) had us going slowly and carefully.

Great route, my friend Duane had to leave following the climb of T-Bolt the day before due to altitude sickness. Met Anthony Ambrose on the trail and climbed it with him the next day. Next morning 2-3 inches of snow everywhere, packed up for a hot shower at Parchers.

Amazing views along the traverse. Hope to head back soon to do the t-bolt - sill in its entirety.

Date Climbed: Jul 23, 2011

Fantastic climbing with Jack in an exhilarating setting! Perfect weather. U-notch was mostly snow with some ice which could be skirted. The bergschrund was passable on the right with 15ft or so of near vertical snow climbing. The 2nd pitch of the chimney above the notch has a few interesting moves. We stayed on the ridge crest after the chimney on the way to the summit, past two gendarmes, instead of dropping down into the other side - not necessary, but made for very exposed and exciting climbing (up to 4th class). Getting from the notch to the summit took a couple of hours. 12 hours total from camp and back. Highly recommended route!

Climbed U-Notch with 4 others during SMG outing. Took a long time but we got the summit and back to the glacier by rappelling through the night. Great route!

Beautiful day. Pretty good snow conditions, albeit slushy in the evening.

Bergschrund is wide open, and took us quite a while to pass. In the middle its about 15 feet wide and 20 feet deep (and overhanging). We were able to surpass on the right hand side of the schrund, where its more mellow (8' of mixed climbing). There's two other exposed crevasses (significantly smaller than the schrund); use good judgment.
