Date Climbed: Aug 3, 2008


8/3/08 - Via the Spiral Route, which was fantastic. Very exposed finish to the summit! Roped up for the short but intimidating traverse on the descent.

8/1/15 - Via the South Ridge. Simulclimbed first few pitches to the start of the business. After that I led odd pitches and Dom led evens. Got way off route at the end and did a licheny finish somewhere on the west face. Scrambled off. Very fun cimbing on awesome rock.

Not a whole lot of technical climbing on this route but it's fun! And it's a short hike from the trailhead.

At the time, I thought the summit was on the divide.

shanahan96controlled spiral  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 2, 2010


climbed the spiral route with the mornin' finish(5.7) w/A.J. the rain storm the previous night had us worried, but the sun was out this morning providing us with excellent climbing. all the instructions say the route is 5.4 yet we didn't bother sticking to the path of least resistance leading us through some interesting, and fun, pitches. the crux on mornin' is exhilarating to say the least, and the position is spectacular!

Full Value alpine classic in RMNP with Tim "The Bulldozer" Pearl who "plowed" through the deep stuff for hours up top like some super-human Super Slog Maestro!!! Great "thunker" ice pitches. Highly recommend!

miztflipSpiral to the Divide  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 23, 2006


My wife and I took advantage of the great weather today. We climbed the Spiral Route, traversed to the divide and peak bagged along the divide before returning via Flattop trail to Bear Lake.
The Spiral route was fun and easy. It made for a great outing in an outstanding setting. We roped for two pitches and found the rock to be solid. The hanging meadow was an awesome place for a snack. We had intended to finish with mornin' but someone else was on it. The traverse to the saddle was a breeze (not sure what all the fuss is about) and we finished on a great ledge leading to the divide.

Had a great time on The Spiral Route - fun climbing in a spectacular setting. The summit was one of the cooler ones I've been on - definitely worth the effort to scramble up to it from the notch.
