Mike Lewis

climbed with Matt Lemke and Josh Lewis. The bergshrund opened wide way too early this year making the other routes already gnarly. We encountered the same moat as Redwic which spiced up the beginning of the pitches so Matt set up a short belay to cross it. Although short, this is my favorite climb to date.

RedwicNorth Ridge... With A Moat  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 5, 2011


With a near-record snow year, we were able to ascend the "Fourth of July" route to the saddle between the false summit and west (true) summit. From there, we ascended a steep snow slope up to the north ridge rock face. A large moat had formed at the rock face, with only a small snow bridge for us to cross for the rock climb. The snow bridge lasted just barely long enough for each of us to cross and ascend.

This slope is much more desirable than the standard route; more direct with little-to-no loose rocks. We rappeled the same route.

My 36th Washington CoHP and my 37th Washington CoGPP.
