fatdadSolo North Ridge  Sucess!

Nice route done I'm not sure how long ago (1992?). A manageable day from Whitney Portal. Long but continually interesting, especially finding a mellow route without a rope.

One day from Whitney Portal...spectacular views but a little scary on the final section since we had a party above us (rock fall danger was serious).

Thanks to Miguel for coming along and letting me talk him into ditching the gear in the car.

Climbed with Miguel Forjan in 15hrs. car to car. Encountered snow and ice choked cracks and slabs. Made for interesting climbing (especially in mountaineering boots). Found some 5.7/8 in there as well.

asmrz4 Attempts in winter
Date Climbed: Feb 16, 2001

I attempted the Complete North Ridge of LPP (from the desert floor) in winter 4 times between 1995 and 2001. The first time with Peter Zurla in 1995, we got stopped by very thin verglas below the third tower. We simply didn't have the gear to protect what in the summer were 4th class slabs. We bivied standing on a table size ledge with our bags over our heads and in the morning, did about ten raps down the face to Meysan Lakes drainage. In December of 1999, Grant Gardner and I tried again and got stopped below the 1st tower in hip deep snow. Ron Hudson and I tried again the next year and gave up bellow the first tower notch, Ron didn't feel this would go. We descended the gully just right of the Bastille Buttress (looking down). In 2001, Joe LeMay and I almost suceeded, we climbed all the way to the last tower, but my mistake forced us to bivi below the large ledge of the tower. The night was extremely cold, we both were totally frozen and in the morning we did 18 raps down another frozen gully to later reach the base of Bastille Tower and the lower gully that leads to flat ground. I still don't know if the COMPLETE North Ridge was ever climbed in winter, I know the Meysan Lakes portion was climbed in the winter some years ago (Parker?).

Scott Sederstrom and I climbed this route in about 14 hours car to car in May 2000. I was knackered by the final pitches. We did not take (nor could we find) the path of least resistance, and wound of making rock moves in the 5.7/8 range. I loved climbing the route in spring conditions.
