Miguel Forjan and I did it in 19 hours car to car. Cool route but definitely some
loose blocks here and there.

My partner and I took 900 years to climb this one day in August of 2003. Rain, hail, rockfall, thunder, lightening, then darkness as our slow-asses crept higher. Slept above the final rappel on the descent overnight. Great climb and pretty moderate.

Venusian Blind was fun but felt easier than 5.7.
The summit register is full...

No- memorable descent after downpour of rain. Rapped in the gulley to climbers left - GASP. Marty, Chris and I all quit climbing for a few months after that horror fest. - had to retire the ropes and even biners and belay devices were severely worn by the granite shards the rope picked up retreating 7 pitches down the ugly gulley.

We intended to rope up after the ledges, but ... the pitches rolled by and we ended up freeing the first eight pitches. While there are a few moves, it is almost all 5.easy. Without ropes things went fast 2 1/2 hours for the whole route.

An awesome climb with great rock. The last two pitches are amazing with a few wildly exposed moves.

Excellent climb. Went back to have a word with Temple Crag after she dropped a large rock on my wife. This time she behaved herself.

Awesome route, had great weather. Fun simul-climbing and tower traverses. Meteor showers, even.

Climbed Sun Ribbon Arete with Miguel Forjan. 10 hours on the route and then headed to the summit. Awesome route! The tyrolean took us several tries to get the rope around the horn, but luckily we were able to get it without wasting too much time. The traverse across was awesome! Great day in the mountains!!!

Venusian Blind Arete (sort of)
4 November 2006

Climbed with Sarah O. Got a bit off route at the start while trying to avoid some early season snow and missed a large part of the climb before we finally gained the arete. Still a great day of climbing in an amazing place!

Fun route, but it almost didn't seem fair to still have the ridge traverse after finishing the climb. I guess I was pretty tired.

Thanks to Dara for the lead and for carrying wine up to camp.

Nice dayhike with Rick Kent. Conditions were great. Plenty of snow coverage from above the lakes to the pass. Fun climbing (though too short) up the crack. A slog up to the summit ridge...then some enjoyable scrambling to the top. Great views.

It was a trip seeing in the log how many times Norman Clyde had done the peak. At a glance...several.

Fantastic glissading from just below the summit to just above the crack. Then from the pass all the way to Second Lake.

To clarify something about the route description on 'physics' page, there is a 4th class crack right below the summit, but it can easily be bypassed (if one so chooses) via a short but airy 2nd class traverse above and to the right of it.
