|b.||Route Climbed: South Butt, East Ledges, NE Face Date Climbed: August 1999|
|Both routes are quality. The rappels can be tricky to find without prior knowledge. The NE Face was one of the most fun, long rock routes I've done. Definitely a classic.|

|Alan Ellis||Route Climbed: South Ridge (South Buttress) Date Climbed: September 11, 2002|
|We had perfect weather after several days of rain. Beware of two large (50-100 lb) rocks on pitch 4 which are about to break loose. These two rocks are in the "beautiful corner with double cracks" just below the K crack ledge as described in the South Ridge Route. These rocks want to be really good hand holds but instead are very loose. Test all holds! Recommend belaying from ledge to climbers left of start of the "double cracks corner" of pitch 4 so you will be out of the way of rock fall. The tendency is for teams to belay at the bottom of the double crack corner so as to view the climber; however, If anchored and belaying at the bottom of the double crack corner while directly below the climber, belayer will not have an escape route during rock fall. |

With Dad Sherman, Isa & Ranjeet. Excellent quality, beautiful granite. The k-crack was as clean as it gets. Beautiful setting.

|Vinny||Route Climbed: South Face? first 3 pitches Date Climbed: July 1997|
|Awesome place- very wild.|
Natalie and I didnt see anyone else for 3 days. We hid out tent in a tree atoll to keep the place visibily uninhabited and couldn't find it at night returning after Wolf's Head.
Pingora was intimidating but offered awesome rock. I have unfinished business there... ; )

|Great view of Lonesome Lake. Can see the reflection of most the whole cirque in the lake.|

|ness_dan||Route Climbed: East Face Left Cracks Date Climbed: August 1998|
|My partner and I started on East Face Left Cracks but got off-route (big surprise) after the third pitch. Even though this is a moderate climb, we somehow managed to turn it into a mini-epic.|
The rock was beautiful, the Cirque is unbelievable, the mosquitoes relentless.
Would love to get back to the Cirque to climb some of the other peaks here.
