BlackmouthFinal 14er  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 29, 2017


Camped at the tarn lake above Finger Lake. I highly recommend this spot. Saves you time on summit day and you can see your entire route from camp. Used my ice axe and crampons on the glacier and went up the red band route. All the info and trip reports here on Summitpost were very helpful. Now it's time to make some more climbing goals.

DieselTo Middle Palidade and back  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 27, 2015


South Fork to the moraine. The bouldering section from Finger Lake to moraine was not fun. I got up on the mountain via the ledge on the left side.

Hiked in with Tony and his bad knee; he waited at base 2.5 hrs for me to hit summit and back. Totally loved this route; would definitely do again!

The only way we found the start to Secor's chute was with GPS coordinates. River crossing was really low this year so we rock-hopped across. Camped by a tarn 11,300 ft up with strong winds. All in all a great climb in a beautiful wilderness area.

Date Climbed: Sep 26, 2009


Dayhike via the NE Face route with 3 others. We caught alpenglow views from Finger Lake, and we never saw a single cloud the entire day. No one else was on the route, and there was negligible wind on the summit. AND we were back down in time for dinner and beer.

skottyGood birthday, 11th 14er  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 4, 2008


I think this is the route I did. WIth so many names be tossed around, I can't be so sure. Everything I read made this seem like such an elusive rout finding challange, but to my surprise, I had no touble at all finding and staying on route. Hook right at the tarn to go up the talus slope, at the top, cut left along the obvious ridge that runs parallel to the face of Middle Pal, turn 90 degrees right at the intersecting ridge formed by the moraine and head stragight for the face. Where it deadends at the face, you can either go up a very steep and loos ramp to the right following the extremely obvious red rock, or go left across the top right corner of the left glacier. I chose the later; it was only about 25 feet of low angle sun-cups that I had no problem booting across with trecking poles. When you hit the face, look right and there is an obvious chimney that is easily climbed. From there just go straight up to the summit. At the summit you'll find an awkward north facing crack about chest high that leads to the summit can.
