shknbkefrom Atlantic  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Oct 14, 2006


Did Pacific after Atlantic via the south slopes. Descended from just above the A/P saddle via the s.w. slopes of Pacific, a steep, loose mess. I would recommend descending from the Crystal/Pacific saddle. Very spectacular summit with plenty of air on the north side.

Date Climbed: Aug 11, 2006


Summited with my friend Jake after we summited Crystal Peak. Nice ridge walk between the two with a nice finish on Pacific. We had both peaks and everything above tree line in Spruce Creek Basin to ourselves. Great day!

Steep snow traverses and avalanche awareness required for this route at this time of the year! Very enjoyable. Over to Atlantic and down.

altitude14erWest Ridge via Mayflower Gulch Trailhead  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 2, 2005


We climbed the West Ridge quickly on this superb summer morning. The Class 3 scrambling on this peak is fairly easy yet this route should be given respect. If you got offtrack on the ridge the difficulty of climbing could get a lot harder. Don't expect to find any cairns to lead the way. The ridge shows no sign of man.

Great day (a little rain), didn't come close to the summit. Route finding took more time than I anticipated. Millions of wildflowers on the way down.

Nice hike and snow climb. Summit was windy with a bit of graupel. Headed to Atlantic and then down McCullough Gulch, across Wheeler trail to the car.

AsphazellRoute Climbed: West Ridge (Class III) Date Climbed: 07/02/05  Sucess!


After taking the wrong route last year which lead to getting cliffed out and then weathered out when we got back on course, this was a very sweet summit! Fun route, mostly class II in my opinon, minimal exposure and moderate route-finding. Climbed with member altitude14er.

RyanSRoute Climbed: Traverse from Crystal Date Climbed: July 4, 2005  Sucess!


Climbed Pacific as part of a long loop including Helen, Father Dyer, Crystal & Atlantic. Loved the scramble from Helen to Father Dyer! We finished with a traverse back east along Pacific's east ridge.

umbra altaRoute Climbed: North Face Couloir Date Climbed: ~June 1 2005  Sucess!

umbra alta

Climbed this with 'peakguru'. Nearly perfect kick snow on this ascent. Steepness was sustained at 60 degrees. Encountered a little water ice-about eight feet-maybe halfway up. There was still a cornice on the short couloir leading to the north ridge above the apron, as well as slide debris on the apron-including a snow/ice boulder the size of a car. We began with running belays but switched to simul-solo for speed after a bowling ball came down ten meters to the right of us. Exit of the couloir was snow-no cornice. Our six a.m. start from the Spruce Creek trailhead was too late, four a.m. would have been better.

virginiapineRoute Climbed: Entire E. Ridge from McCullough Gulch Date Climbed: mid-July, 1992  Sucess!


An interesting outing, before the days of guidebooks to the area (other than Quandary). Parked in McCullough Gulch and wandered up the hillside, past the entrance to an abandoned mine, to where the high crest of the rocky E. Ridge begins. This is a long, bumpy ridge which deposits you on the tundra near Pacific Tarn. I reversed the route on descent.

A very nice route, with a bit of everything: Trail approach, bushwhack through willows, a scree slope to reach the ridge and then a beatiful ridge on mostly solid rock. We climbed and descended the same route.

This peak was definitely the hardest of the 3 (Crystal, Pacific, Atlantic), and most impressive! Lots of fun but wrestling with all the snow and ice tired me out.
