darinchadwickRoute Climbed: A coulior above the Thorp Creek drainage basin. Date Climbed: Winter 1993  Sucess!


This was my second time summiting Sacajawea. The first was traversing (in the scree) from Matterhorn. For the second time I went with a crafty climber named Bob Rittenhouse, who is always looking for something new. He had espied an excellent coulior on an earlier trip, and invited me to go check it out.

Climbing in the Wallowas in the winter is crazy, because the wet snow and freeze thaw cycles make for terrible avalanche conditions, but we caught a good streak of weather, snowshoed in, and climbed the route. It wasn't as steep as we had hoped, but we certainly had plenty of climbing solitutude.

Climbed the Matterhorn and then traversed below the subsummit between it and Sacajawea on the west side. Reached the saddle and scrambled the ridgeline over one gendarme but got stuck on the next one. It turned about 4th class maybe harder. Was alone and did not think it wise to climb further with lots of exposure on each side. Talked to others who tried afterwards and they agreed and had backed off as well. Would have taken too much time to traverse lower on the scree so I went back to the subsummit, walked the ridge on the Hurwal Divide to a scree field and surfed sand all the way down to Ice Lake. Will go back soon and try the Thorp Creek Trail route.
