I thoroughly enjoyed this climb. The rock was excellent and handholds were abundant. On the way out we saw a bald eagle over Saddlebag Lake.

A nice half-day hike in a beautiful area. The mosquitos near Greenstone Lake were horrible and we were swarmed by huge clouds of them. Very nice summit views that really make me want to climb the north ridge of Conness.

Perfect conditions on our second couloir climb, we skipped the summit and descended to quick dip in the lake before the usual long drive home

Spur of the moment, last trip for Dug before he moved to NYC made this rather bittersweet. Despite his fear of snow, Dug will be missed sorely as a constant companion in the Sierra.

The ridge is easy, and if you are soloing and get trepidatious at any point one can drop down to the right (west) for easier terrain. But you would be sorry. The knife-edge is delightful climbing on clean rock.

Soloed the route twice this summer, both times with Bob (just for a change). The first time was a warm-up for Williamson the next day, the next time was as the approach to Conness' North Ridge. This is a nice scramble, especially in conjunction with Conness.

Josh's first alpine ice. 3 pitches. 4 climbers waited for us at the schrund--hope we didn't send too many dinner plates down. Summit was windless and warm.

Warning: we did the cl3 direct approach up slabs to the glacier. Stay in the middle of the slabs--we started following ramps to the left and had to cross exposed, sketchy terrain to get back on the scramble.

The summit is EZ cl3 from the saddle, w/1 cl4 move if you go direct.

ZzyzxRoute Climbed: North Couloir Date Climbed: September 25, 2004
I climbed the couloir with Pavel and Vendula. Due to having only one 50 m rope it took us a long time to climb it. There were two other climbers above us which meant we were constantly getting hit by falling ice. Over all a great climb with a nice, short approach and easy descend. We finished the climb in the dark . Pavel went to the summit while Vendula and I decided to hike down.

Day 1 of the 2004 Sierra Challenge saw 8 of us soloing the easy NW Ridge on our way to Conness. Trip Report

What a fun climb! Vendula was super brave to do this as her first ice climb... I just wish there were no other people in the couloir - we got hit pretty hard by the dislodged ice from above that picked up a lot of speed. Kris was bleeding...

Cramponed up the snowbound SE Face to the notch. Did not proceed to the summit since the main objective was to ski the great NE Couloir. Click on thumb for trip report:
