My last CA 14er. Via U-notch, much harder for me than expected. The ice was extremely hard and brittle, was glad to get onto the short yet super fun rock pitches at the top. Made the last rap down over the 'shrund in the dark, long day.

Date Climbed: Aug 11, 2009


Polemonium, the first in our three peak traverse that included North Pal & Starlight. We approached via the west chute from Palisade Basin. The climbing above the U-notch was much more challenging than I anticipated. Safely summitting and descending was made possible through the team effort of my partners, Phil & Joe.

I looked for the Clyde Variation and probably missed it, so this was trickier than I had expected...

Did this with Tom Becht and Glenn Gookin on a beautiful day. Truth to tell, after doing Thunderbolt's summit block and Starlight's "Milk Bottle" this peak was anti-climactic. we spent more time rapping down the U-Notch than scrambling up the other side to Polemonium.

Long day doing the Palisades Traverse with Glenn and Augie. The peak was relatively easy after wasting a lot of time rapping into the U-Notch.

Hit PP as part of the Palisades traverse last summer. Great exposure and difficult route-finding, but Bruce kept us on course.

Fine climb with Samantha, Hakan (sierrawolf), and Vladimir. Vlad lead the two pitches. The second pitch should have a 5.6 rating.

Date Climbed: Jul 1, 2008


An early morning err in routefinding put me in the U-Notch couloir, wondering where the f@#! Mount Sill was. Meant to traverse Sill to T-Bolt, but only ended up doing Polemonium to Starlight. Saves some peaks for next time though - sometimes they are sweeter the second time around.
