Toured up to the top of the old chute, rode back down. The snow sucked but the views were excellent!

I went up on Monday (7/11) and the conditions are great in the mornings, but as soon as the sun starts shining ice started to come loose. There are long snowfall trails coming down from the Pearly Gates route. And the Bergschrund has opened up to cover the majority of the lower route.

The Old Chute route is still in great condition, with ice holding snowpack and allowing easy kick steps. We didn't stop for long at the summit because the winds started picking up.

Took a friend up the route. The climbing up top in the chute was fun, although the route was tracked out the whole way. Abysmal weather (wet, cold, and cloudy). We only saw two other climbers on the peak the entire day; they had set up a camp and were doing the route in two days, complete with legitimate Chouinard and Frost laminated bamboo piolets!

Not a difficult route, conditions in the last chute were icy enough that I felt safety necessitated to put on crampons the last 100' or so, but otherwise just cruising. Snowboarded from the summit, again the only issue was the gnar ice in the initial descent couloir, after that it was regular black diamond...

Steep route, though no need for a running belay or anything...

SwithichAlternate Route  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 11, 2011
Climbed this in late morning when snow was softer. This route was the primary route used (all but two groups on the day we summitted) in place of the Hogsback/Pearly Gates. It should be noted that the Hogsback is far left of the Pearly Gates this year and the cravasse is very wide at this point. Just an FYI for those reading.

Were hoping for good weather but wasn't as good as expected. Snowed most of the way up to the hogsback with low visibility. On advice from another climber we decided to do the old chute variation. Had some foggy views from the summit. A little bit of wind but not too bad. We left the car at 2:45 AM, summit at about 8 am. Back down to car at 10:20 AM for an early lunch at the cafeteria in the ski lodge.

Solo trip to the summit, first of the season. Perfect day for the climb. Very cold till I hit the summit where the sun was waiting...
Left the truck at 2:40am, hit the summit at 8:10am, took my time back to the truck because the weather was soooooo nice.

I had a fun time on the Old Chute, although I did not like the hissing ice. Ewww. But it was a great mountain.

GerrySIndependence Day - shoot to the chute  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 4, 2009

Slept in the back of the rental car in the parking lot. One AM start. Got to the hogback at daybreak, saw a bowling ball size rock break loose and shoot across the traverse to the chute going 40-50mph; saw plenty of tracks in the snow where other rocks had done the same ... had second thoughts. Did not like the idea of going down to stinky hot rocks/fumeroles either. Finally decided to hammer it to the top limiting time in the shooting gallery. Fairly steep snow/ice climb. Knife edge on top was a non-issue. Fireworks on top.

We went up probably too early in the day, in retrospect. We made the summit, but I had to downclimb the steep chute which was a little icy. I kicked some nice steps for others to follow (=

We had to front point our way up the old chute because of the snow conditions. The summit traverse is sweet. Spectacular views!

Much different from the old pearly gates route! The little exposed summit ridge is a bit fun too. Got hit with quite a bit of ice fall the two times I did this route this year.
