Great little scramble. Looking forward to doing this one in the winter. Did this as part of the Tatoosh Traverse.

cluckRoute Climbed: Southeast Chimneys from Pinnacle Saddle Date Climbed: October 12, 2002  Sucess!


We climbed this as part of a traverse including Pinnacle and Plummer peaks. The chimneys provide nearly unlimited route options for gaining the summit on good, solid rock.

Lessons learned:

It is easier to traverse completely around the backside of the mountain to get to the Southeast side rather than try to climb straight up the rotten rock composing the Southern headwall. On an earlier trip, we climbed straight up from the Pinnacle/Castle saddle. We were met by unprotectable climbing on rotten rock. When we finally reached the top, we found we were on the shorter South ridge and ended up walking off and over to the base of the North ridge to begin the real climb to the summit.
