Climbed the 5.9 SW face, right route on Friday and the super-classic NE face on Saturday. Nice alpine starts each day (climbing by noonish)!

GCutforthNortheast Face - Spectacular Route


An amazing line up an even more impressive peak. Full value for the grade. Be wary of the easy chimney...

A classic climb! We summited at about 12:30 avoiding a thunder storm by about 1/2 hour. I especially loved the upper pitches. See my trip report, if interested.

Date Climbed: Aug 7, 2007


I wasn't feeling it that morning, but we got 'er done anyway. This time we did the last pitch to the NE summit. Once again we had this route to ourselves on a cloudless day. Then we watched crowds lined up on it for the rest of our time in the Cirque. Strange.

One of the best climbs at that grade that I've done. Killer views of Wolf's head, awesome weather, no mosquitos, no rain, good partner. What more do you want?

Attempted to do the climb from the trailhead in one day. Rapped off of Pitch 5- ran out of time. The area was very crowded with hikers, climbers, fishermen.

asmrzRoute Climbed: South Buttress Date Climbed: August 16, 2005


Penelope May and I climbed the South Buttress of Pingora to the small ledge below the "K" Cracks. While I was climbing the last 40-60 feet toward the base of the cracks, the weather changed from mostly clear to totally sacked in and within minutes, a huge hail storm developed. The rain and hail was so strong, we really could not move to sort our ropes and to attempt to rap. We removed all our (metal) hardware, placed it on the ledge, downclimbed about 30 feet to another small ledge and waited. We spent 3 hours on that ledge while 5 inches of hail fell. Penelope was the victim of (residual) lightening hit, which hit her hip and I felt couple currents go through my legs. It was extremely scary situation. After the storm, we just rapped the line as quickly as we could. Didn't go to the summit but that was not that important at the moment.

An epic nine day trip!! We got caught high on the route by a snowstorm and high winds, had to rescue a group below us and were unable to find camp that night. Bivied on a ledge in 20 degree weather - four guys and two space blankets.
