PellucidWombat

Vlad and I had come to the Palisades last weekend to do a traverse from Thunderbolt Peak via the North Couloir to Mt Sill. As we had made our approach to camp the day prior extra fast, we decided to quickly climb Agassiz via the NE Face (II, 5.2).

Long story short, we got off route, climbed really dangerous loose rock (I dislodged a desk-sized one by hand-jamming it) and ended up on the summit at midnight, with recently refrozen snow making our descent to the east notch difficult without crampons. After a night of downclimbing around the snow and cliffs, we made it back to camp at 6am. All in all, we had been on the move for 20 hrs since leaving the trailhead!

The route had some stout 5.8 cracks, one overhanging, one offwidth, and one requiring a strong layback.
