BranchWhitneyRoute Climbed: SW Ridge  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Feb 16, 2006
The SW ridge has a much shorter walk across the desert than the SE ridge. Great views from the summit.

Followed the ridge from Travertine Point along Hwy 190: Along the next ridge to the south of Pt 4420, north to Pt 6050, and then east to Pyramid. The west ridge was a little disappointing, mostly class 2 with only a short section of third class required. But it has excellent views to (somewhat) compensate--I think a good deal better than those seen on the SE Ridge. And if you don't go up there expecting a route that's "not for the squeamish" (as one register entry had curiously proclaimed), it might even be quite enjoyable.

The cloud layer began at about 6,500ft, so (like the day before on Nopah) I didn't have any summit views. I'll have to see if I can find a more interesting way up to the summit on a clear day to check them out. Seems like the south side might offer a class 3 route up...

Got up somehow--sure wasn't class 1-2! Spectacular scenery--Death Valley is a constant surprise. So beautiful!

Wanted to get this one for awhile, but that damn road closure kept me away. As soon as the weather cooled, I knocked it off. Death Valley never lets me down - and this experience was no exception.
