CWesselsNE Ridge  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 27, 2016


I agree that there's a lot of loose rock on this route, especially near the start. Otherwise the climb is very satisfying and enjoyable. I traversed the west ridge to a class 2 chute near Pyramid for descent. I definitely would not recommend downclimbing the ridge.

Date Climbed: Aug 21, 2010


Set up camp at Dade Lake with Gordon Ye for climbing the NE Ridge of Bear Creek Spire the next day. I had some time left in the day, so I climbed the N Ridge, then traversed to Pyramid Peak and descended the W Ridge to the col with the NE Ridge of Bear Creek Spire. A good afternoon out on a lot of knife-edge ridges, though there was a LOT of loose rock too!

Date Climbed: Aug 30, 2009


I don't recommend this as a descent route, especially for parties of more than 1. It's not so much class 4, as class 3 with huge movable blocks that randomly break free. The exact ridgeline looks to be safest for most of the way. I nearly killed CP at least once, and did one of my patented leaps to grab a knife edge when my footing disappeared down a chute.

Otherwise, a very pretty peak.

DebNorth Ridge Solo  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 11, 2007


Got a late start (0900) due to long drive; car to car in 9 hours with some heart-thumping events along the North Ridge. I stayed pretty far west and encountered more Class 4 with some 5 stuck in there pretty often. Loose rock? More like moveable surfaces! Kinda hairy when alone.
Descended via a few Class 4/5 chutes along the eastern face and circled around "pothole" lake; wasn't in the right frame of mind to downclimb my ascent route. =8O THEN the rain came.
BTW, the register coffee jar is on the 12,744' peak. I forgot to sign my name after putting a comment in it. :/

I started off in the dark and summited just before sunrise on a beautiful summer morning. Watching sunrise on the surrounding peaks was breathtaking. The North Ridge is a very fine, unsung route in the Little Lakes area. Trip Report
