Hurd -> Trap -> Johnson Date Climbed: Aug 13, 2008
Day 6 of the 2008 Sierra Challenge. Climbed the East Face of Hurd in the morning with Brice W, then traversed to Trapezoid via the South Ridge of Hurd and Trapezoid's NE Ridge (the South Ridge was a better scramble). Met up with Adam J on Trapezoid and traversed the crest to Johnson. Fun day. Trip Report
From Long Lake I climbed the east facing ridgeline NE. of Trapezoid in photo #2 of the images page.It looks like a pyramid peak from Long Lake but it's actually just a long ridge line that connects to Trapezoid. The ridgeline is a great cl 3 climb. Keep traversing and eventually you come to a spot you can exit the ridge.From there it's a short traverse reaching the 3/4 point of the North chute of Trapezoid. There was a small metal film cannister with a few names in it on Trapezoid
Route Climbed: Northwest face Date Climbed: June 10, 2004
Fine weather all the way. With all the snow on the ascent, you'd think there'd be plenty of snow on top. No such luck. Camped on the summit. What a treat to just sit back in the sun and watch the sun go down!
