bc44caesarSnowpatch Route  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 18, 2010


Not on the same level as the Northeast Ridge of Bugaboo or the West Ridge of Pigeon, but still a fun, classic route. We belayed about four pitches and simulclimbed the rest on a perfect weather day. On one of the upper pitches I went for the dike on the face instead of the offwidth - we agreed it was the funnest pitch on the route. Ended up hanging out on the summit for 3hrs! Rapped down the Kraus-McCarthy.

Via the Snowpatch Route with Robert and Mark. We did a fair bit of simul-climbing. We did simul-raps on the way down. Then we did an alternate descent back to the hut instead of the usual Pigeon Col. Really fun!

SW Corner. Drove to the Bugs in a VW in a single 36-hour push from San Francisco.

GCutforthKrauss McCarthy Route  Sucess!


Not the most breathtaking position, but a great climb all the same. We topped out with a full on electrical storm bearing down. Needless to say the we made a hasty retreat.

Upper pitches are nice cracks in a stellar position. The view from the summit couldn't be better. What a summit! By the way, making 60m raps will not get you down the Kraus-Mcarthey any faster. We had to reclimb a pitch to get a rope unstuck...
