adamschneiderLost a trekking pole!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 29, 2017


Did Vesper and then Sperry, by traversing along the ridge below Wolf Peak. While descending Sperry, I chucked my poles down a few feet so I'd have both hands free for a veggie belay (a necessity on this hellish scramble), and I couldn't find one of them! So if you find an aluminum Leki pole somewhere on Sperry's west face, let me know...

ZakGMy First Scramble  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 28, 1995


Went way off route, climbed the false summit, and pulled a big rock out on myself. A fine introduction to peak bagging.

Summited with my team after setting up camp by the lake. There was lots of mixed rock/snow/ice so we set up a rope.

Date Climbed: Aug 23, 2014


I summited Vesper and Sperry, the classic combo! I though Vesper was the better climb, but Sperry had the better summit. Beautiful day! I went early, and hiked fast... I had both summits and both routes to myself for the ascents. The last 300 feet or so of Sperry was rough with all the steep foresty brush and rock. On my way up I was thinking, "I'll never do this one again!" but the amazing summit may have changed my mind. Fantastic views! Plus, nice flat spot to hang out and have lunch. 7 1/2 hours car to car with about 1 hour total spent on the summits, 50 minutes of that on Sperry.

Second attempt. Met a group of YMCA youth climbers and a goat above the lake.

Did this one after work. If the route is more than solid class 2, your off route. Which happened alot ducking under brush, talus fields, boulders and misplaced cairns... Ended the day with a rolled ankle and smashed knee in Wirtz Basin... Made crossing the Stilly at night a real joy. Amazing Views and a really beautiful area.

Bruce and I climbed the Upper South Ridge route in a little over 10 hours car to car. Our original plan was to try the whole ridge but that didn't work out. The route itself was pretty poor in quality and with lots of shrubery. This was my first climb in the Mountain Loop Highway area, and first alpine climb in nearly a year.

The first time I got a good view of Sperry I thought "well I'll never do that one". But today Gareth and I stood on the top. Not much visibility and too much exposure to be standing on the loose, wet, dirt and heather that make up the standard route. Just below the summit I traversed over to the North face where I found good solid rock to hold onto.

An excellent outing! There was still a few snow patches flanking the lake below Vesper an Sperry, making for an icy dip on the way down.
