Hard and dangerous climb Date Climbed: Jul 28, 2009
We thought it would be safer to drop into camp Schurman from this guy instead of crossing a good part of Emmons glacier. But the rock was so lose and steep, it was most likely more dangerous. I ripped my sleeping pad bag on the rocks!
I've been up this side (as shown in prime picture) a couple of times as a supposed quick exit from the Schurman/Emmons camps. It is a nasty scree scramble, particularly if you are carrying full glacier and camp gear for the climb. Wear a helmet, particularly if you are with a group, and don't expect it to be a shortcut compared to continuing down the typical Emmons Glacier route to the scree slope to Camp Curtis.
