wmollandFrom the saddle  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 30, 2014


The route up to the saddle was relatively easy with a small snow field only in the deepest darkest parts of the route which were easily avoidable. An easy second class romp up sand and rocks led to the summit. Awesome!

Climbed Royce after Merriam, via the saddle from Royce Lakes. Did not find a summit register on either summit, but it may have been hidden under snow which remained plentiful on the summit plateau even in this low snow year.

Date Climbed: Oct 5, 2013


From Honeymoon Lake via Pine Creek pass with MD who stayed at Royce Lakes for a few hours while I went up Merriam and then Royce. Was concerned I would need an ice ax on the permanent snow field below the saddle but I was able to stay on dry land the whole way up.

Date Climbed: Jul 29, 2012


Slog up the south slope (a bit better by keeping close to the ridge) before dropping over to climb Feather Peak. Climbed Bear Claw Spire, Merriam, Royce, Feather, 12918, and Spire Peak over the weekend.

calipidderSouth slope from Merriam  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 26, 2010


Thought we were outsmarting the weather with a morning climb, but we barely tagged the summit (BOTH of 'em since we weren't sure) before being chased off the ridge by the electricity in the air. Looked for a register on both but didn't find anything - admittedly we didn't look very hard or long once the crackling started. At 10 am.

Date Climbed: Sep 12, 2009


Dayhiked the peak via Merriam Saddle, but bailed on Merriam due to thunderstorms. A chill 12 hrs car-to-car. Which bump was the summit?

Not that interesting, but at least the boulders were stable. Not sure which bump was the summit, but I touched both and found a register on neither.

mylesEast Face  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 22, 2009


Climbed a third-class chute on the east face, to the right of the one I believe is described in Secor. Fun climbing throughout.

Didn't see a register on any of the summits, but didn't look too long as lightning was striking over Seven Gables and the wind was heading it my way.

Lots of snow descending from Merriam-Royce col, so I'm glad I toted the ice axe.

Did both Royce and Merriam from the saddle, kind of a sand slog from the saddle, but at least its not to far...

Did these three peaks in a dayhike from the trailhead. Total time was 11:21 hours car to car.

Confused about the redspot on feather.

Date Climbed: Aug 11, 2007


Slog up from saddle punctuated by the sounds of climbers on Merriam's north buttress. Descended obvious NW chute directly below summit with lots of rockfall potential.

Climbed south slope from Merriam-Royce saddle and descended northwest chute as part of Merriam-Royce-Feather dayhike. These routes are both chossy. 11 hr, 21 min roundtrip from Pine Creek trailhead. Beautiful weather and area!
