chicagotransplantSouth Ridge  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 15, 2013


Second ascent (9/15/13), south ridge from Pitkin but this time with a traverse to "Peak W" and "X Prime", some interesting notches on they way to W required some bypassing as they were near vertical slabs on the back side. "X Prime" had an interesting exposed class 4 slab finish.
Third ascent (9/17/16), south ridge with Rachael and Ben, traversed over to West Partner bypassing a serrated section in after the saddle to avoid needing a rope.

Date Climbed: Aug 11, 2013


Climbed with DanR. From the South ridge, we maneuvered around to the Southeast Face. There was a prominent gully. Dan stayed on the right side of it; I stayed on the left side. I've been wanting to do the traverse to West Partner, but it wasn't happening today. We did follow the ridge toward West 1/3 to 1/2 the way before descending down to the lake. Awesome! Weather held for us, but it was a little iffy.

Climbed again 7/9/2016 and did the traverse to West Partner (with Amy)

shknbkesouth ridge, traverse to West Partner  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 13, 2010


The Partner traverse was an exciting day of scrambling, but one not to be taken lightly. The rock is generally solid though. The south ridge is a nice warmup. We traversed over to the east face for the finish.

One of the highlights of the 2009 summer climbing season. Climbed solo because my friend was camping at Pitkin lake and he climbed West Partner instead of our agreed upon East Partner. It is easy to mix these peaks up. Great place.

Climbed South Ridge until steep towers near the summit forced us over on to the East Face to finish. Great peak, some fun scrambling on this one.

Headed up the Pitkin Creek trailhead at 6AM and summited around 10. Negotiating the complex slabs beneath the summit was great, although interesting on the way down. After looking at it, the traverse between the Partners might go although the slabs beneath West Partner might be troublesome.

From upper Booth Lake basin basecamp, with Ben L. Went over the South ridge of West Partner to upper Pitkin Lake basin, to the West ridge of East Partner, crossed and down-climbed many couloirs. After making it back to basecamp, we were cave-bound for the next 18 hrs!

Took a few tries to get this one done. Good views from up there.

Another perfect day in the Gores. Colonelpyat and I hiked up and camped the day before and made our climb the following day. We had perfect weather. Not as difficult as we expected. We brought a ropeand gear, ice axe and crampons-and never needed them. Better safe than sorry.
