Great views, easy class 3. A bit of exposure at times but nothing big. Two goats on the descent were chattering at each other. T-storms rolled in around 1pm.

MindyEast Ridge  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Dec 2, 2012


The ridge had patches of avoidable snow...and was a blast! Summit had packed snow. Descended South slope. Found areas of snow and ice to, and around, the frozen lake. Patches of ice in trees.

About a foot of fresh snow on Hassel Peak and it started to melt when I hiked Pettingel Peak.

telemarkdudeSouthwest Ridge  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 29, 2012


Went up the westward leaning ramp above Herman Lake. About halfway up that, I looked at the trail going up what looked like an unpleasantly loose scree slope on Pettingell's south side and decided "I don't think so". Instead, I continued on to a saddle to the left and scrambled up the crest of the southwest ridge; solid rock on that route.

The east ridge was fun. Super quick descent. Meant to also tag 'The Citadel' but weather forced me down. Ok summit. Not the best.

blackhawkeast ridge ascent south slopes descent  Sucess!


Climbed east ridge. I tried to solo that chimney face crack but didn't feel comfortable trying to pull the roof with no rope and a long fall down so I chimneyed back down n went around the south side of it. Then descended south slopes. Great summit all to meself.

Lots of loose scree. Descended from the start of the east ridge in the talus gulley. This was a bit more stable. Great weather and had the summit and Herman Lake all to myself.

Fun scrambling day on East Ridge with Jordan and Eric. Drove through blizzardy conditions on the Front Range to find clear skies over the divide. Crazy! Definitely recommend this in the winter.

Tim, Jordan and I climbed the East ridge on a super cold, windy blue bird day. The summit was perfect, without any wind! Jordan and I continued on to Hasslle Pk.

Date Climbed: Oct 10, 2009


Couldn't get over the divide to meet my friend since the tunnel was closed, so I went up Pettingell. Very cold and windy, but a nice day. Had to avoid loaded spots above the lake.

Gareth"The Citadel" to Pettingell Peak Traverse  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 19, 2008


I climbed over to Pettingell from "The Citadel" with slowpoke. It was a long day and I made it even longer by nearly climbing to the summit of UN 13,215 before turning around due to nearby cloud development. Pettingell's North Ridge turned out to be quite a scramble!

Climbed via ridge connecting with the Citadel. Continued down to Herman Gulch by following the divide (east ridge) down to the saddle below Woods Mountain. A long day!

Me and "Asphazell" hiked up to Herman Lake at night with headlamps. We camped near the lake and started this climb at 5:30am. A cold morning and amazing glissade from summit to lake!

Date Climbed: Sep 8, 1985


There had been a snowstorm the day before, so it added a bit of winter to the climb. Enjoyed spending some time at Herman Lake after descending the south route.

SarahThompsonTraverse from the Citadel  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 8, 2006


Not sure why, but we traversed from the Citadel on an incredibly rainy day - the kind where it just rains steadily all day. We were wet but not cold enough to care. The traverse took a lot of concentration since the rock was wet and slimy. One 15 meter rappel was required to overcome a 5th class step.
