Part Of The Sierra Challenge (2007) Date Climbed: Aug 3, 2007
Enjoyed this technical little summit, along with Bob, Rick, Michael and Glen. First time on the Sawtooth Ridge...beautiful! Climbed to the summit via the Polemonium Col. Tagged this summit and went on to tag The Dragtooth and Matterhorn with Rick Kent. A fun first day of the Sierra Challenge 2007.
Route Climbed: West Face Date Climbed: Sept 6, 2003
Did a 5th class route up the west face from the col to the north, however did not summit due to lack of rappeling gear. Descended a 4th class slab section on the west face directly below the summit block.
Started from Twin Lakes, took the Cleaver Notch route from Horse Creek up to Blacksmith Peak, traversed behind the Sawtooth Ridge to the Doodad, then climbed the west face of Matterhorn and descended the East Couloir route to Horse Creek.
