traverpenWest Face  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 27, 2013


Great Climb on West Face, Weather moved in, but held till we rapped. Then we had a nice gentle mist. Approach/Hike was the hardest part, but well worth it.

haishanSouth Face - Ishun's route  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 24, 2011


Day hike to pay tribute to Ishun and to figure out where we went wrong on the route... the correct route is up the left hand wall from top of gully. Soloed the gully, cleaned out our old bail gear, and rope soloed the steep wall... left a stuck cam from the anchor at top of the wall. The climbing here is excellent. It's been a while, was thinking of writing up a report. Miss you, Ishun. |;

A GPS would have cut a lot of time off of the hike to Geraldine Lakes, but it wasn't too bad. Pretty sure we did the west face, couldn't find much info on it so we found the start and went up. Really really fun place to climb, with an awesome summit! The register had nobody since August 2009. A golden eagle flew below us at the top to cap it off. Great weekend!

bechttEast Face/SE Buttress  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 19, 2009


Climbed with the Gookins from a camp at Lower Geraldine Lake. Sam G. led while Glenn G. trailed a rope for me. The rap is wild and the climb was pretty darn fun as well. Capped off a good weekend with Tehipite Dome (from the ridge) and Spanish Mtn as the other two climbs.

Sierra first: I reached the summit before Bob Burd! It will probably never happen again.

Hiked in over snow and survived the cold temps of a storm. We camped above Geraldine Lake on Saturday. Sunday brought better weather for the climb (partly cloudy but no precipitation). The formation is very cool with solid & steep face climbing. The trail finding is a bit tough beyond Spanish Pass.

Date Climbed: Aug 2, 2008


Summitted the Obelisk two days in a row. Day 1 via the 5.8 (4 pitches) NorthWest face. Day 2 via the 5.7 (6 pitches) SouthWest face. Great climbing on good rock. We camped at one of the Geraldine Lakes. Neddless to say we did no see a soul the entire weekend. If you are going there, take a GPS. I found it really hard to stay on "trail".

Diggler2nd time's the charm  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 23, 2006


After a disappointing retreat last year with Lara from the S face, came back & did the N face this year with Eszter. Enjoyable climb for the most part, & managed to piece together an interesting variation for the last pitch that wasn't in the books (the first time?). Beautiful & amazing area, & sweet formation!
