HyadventureNorthwest Chute  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 28, 2010

Hyadventure

The cold weather and high winds turned this into a hellish climb for me. Too windy to free the Milk Bottle, but I was able to aid it. Plenty of real climbing from class 3 to 5.easy. The tricky route finding and tons of exposure makes this a climb only for the bold and skilled.

WARNING: Do not climb the Milk Bottle without a sling (double) to back-up the bolt. The ΒΌ inch bolt and folded sheet metal hanger, both rusted, are not safe to handle bodyweight, let alone a fall.

Cool to actually see the milkbottle in person after seeing pictures of it for so long, kind of like meeting that celebrity that you've only seen on TV (if you watch TV, that is). Long and rewarding day.

Climbed with Vladimir and Hakan from Palisade Basin. The "Milk Bottle" was an exciting top rope for me. Thanks to Hakan's route info we were able to follow this complicated route with 4 belayed 4th class sections. Vladimir soloed the "Milk Bottle" with approach shoes, a backpack, and a hiking pole!

Congrats, Gordon! It's always sweeter after a few attempts. Glad you guys made it up & down both of these challenging & amazing peaks. So is Thunderbolt the only one left now??? When's the barbeque going to be, man?!

I got a lot to go if I want to finish the CA 14ers. I got thunderbolt, but not williamson/tyndall/sill/langley/muir/white/split, so only half done :) Still must do the barbecue though! Some time in Oct?

...but getting up to and down from the summit pinnacle was more challenging than I expected. This was the third in our three peak traverse that included Polemonium & North Pal. We approached via the west chute from Palisade Basin and traversed from North Pal. We descend by multiple raps down the Starlight Chute. Safely summitting and descending was made possible through the team effort of my partners, Phil & Joe.

Continuing the traverse. Skipped the milk bottle because I thought I needed to hurry, so I'll have to come back.

Had great fun leading the Milk Bottle. Thanks to my SP partners Tom Becht and Glenn Gookin. Started at South Lake and exited Glacier Lodge. We also had great fun climing our selected route up Starlight coming from Thunderbolt.

Hit SP as part of the Palisades traverse last summer. Great exposure and difficult route-finding, but Bruce kept us on course.
