Date Climbed: Sep 1, 2009


LeConte route from Palisade Basin. Snow at the base of both chockstones made route more difficult than last year. No snow in third chute for second year in a row.

RickFNo. 2 on a Three Peak Traverse  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 11, 2009


The second on our three peak traverse following Polemonium and on the way to Starlight. We approached via the west chute from Palisade Basin, then up the "Chimney". Safely summitting and descending was made possible through the team effort of my partners, Phil & Joe.

Climbed with Javier (avghiker). 4th class pitches down & to left of chimney were good fun. Met a gaggle of SP'ers (including Blackmouth who posted just below this post) on the summit. Excellent weather & climbing conditions.

Date Climbed: Aug 10, 1979


Approached from Glacier Creek via Potluck. I found that climbing the icy chock-stones in the narrow chute below the bowl to be at about the upper limit of my ability at the time. Not surprised to see this route's been upgraded to class 4. Amazing climb, though.

Day hiked the Thuderbolt to Sill Traverse in just over 20 hours. Started at South Lake and ended at the shuttle car at Glacier Lodge. Climbed with SPer's Forjan,Kevin Trieu,Dave S,Luis Gijon and Corey Harelson. We used our double ropes to rap down to the U-Notch on our way to Polemonium. Ran into Sper's Chuck O and Javier on the summit of North Pal.

Date Climbed: Jul 11, 2009


Began our trek in at 138am on Sunday, arrived about an hour and a half too late...got to the base of the 'schrund but the rockfall was a bit much to risk annihilation. Returning soon for revenge. Approached via NF Big Pine Creek, were aiming to climb the U-Notch + Chimney variation.

Cool climb. The views from camp at Thunderbolt Pass were amazing. I highly recommend the west side.

A super-fun climb thanks to the appealing route and great history. I soloed it, and high up in the chute remember thinking to myself that every step had to count--no room for error. Then I came flying up to the ridgeline at the top of the chute and darn near threw myself over before realizing what a yowza knife edge it was--whew, there's an empty elevator shaft if ever there was one. Great weather, great day, great climb.

Tom Becht and Glenn Gookin and me hiked from the Bishop Pass Trailhead at South Lake and exited at Glacier Lodge. This is a great peak but not quite as much fun as climbing the summit block on Thunderbolt and the Milk Bottle on Starlight.

Long day doing the Palisades Traverse with Glenn and Augie. Expected it to be much harder -- especially from the notch.

Hit NP as part of the Palisades traverse last summer. Great exposure and difficult route-finding, but Bruce kept us on course.

Linked up Polemonium, North Palisade and Starlight from camp in Palisade basin. Beautiful area, and saved several peaks to make sure there will be a "next time."
