Route Climbed: Matterhorn/Sacajawea Ridge Date Climbed: July 27, 2002
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.
