Route Climbed: East Face Date Climbed: August 1979
My wife Cara Lou and I climbed this route from the basin east of the peak. The climbing was straightforward and enjoyable scrambling to borderline Class 4 that led to a gratifyingly small and remote summit. We returned to our starting point by downclimbing the Class 3 southeast ridge to the col southeast of the peak, then dropped east into the lake basin. I believe both of these routes to be firsts, as I have never seen a writeup of either route. These are worthwhile climbs in a very remote setting.
Route Climbed: West Face via Silver Pass Date Climbed: July 10th, 2004
The lower section was a sandy mess, up higher more solid rock could be found. Amazing views, felt like I was in the middle of no where(cause I was). Had to hunt around a bit to find the summit marker(which had fallen about 5ft). Well worth the short trip, highly recommend this to anyone trekking over Silver Pass.
