Voted 10/10

In Selected Climbs it is listed as IV - V, in 50 favorite climbs it is listed as Grade V. Almost no-one does the traverse car to car in a day. Grade III??? How the heck would you do this thing car to car in half a day???

The rest of page looks great though, thanks for your contribution.

Thanks for the input Martin. I hadn't seen those grades. I bumped it to grade IV, since I'm not 100% convinced it merits a grade V. Maybe after I climb a few more I'll have a better sense. The "Notes on Time" section addresses this issue.

We planned to hit the NF of Buckner, but it was out of shape, so we headed out of BB after the traverse. Rob (Yang) opted out of the traverse, and did Sahale solo, then wandered up to the south ridge of Torment, but bailed after getting up to the notch above the glacier. Doug bailed after the traverse, so Rob and I did the Beckey route on Liberty Bell the next day, then headed up to Squamish for a couple more days of cragging. Rob and Doug did Cutthroat the day before we headed up to BB for the Torment-Forbidden thing. It all just whets my appetite for more. I'm wondering, what do you know about the north gully ice climb on Index? It looks interesting in the guidebook.

Steve, Dug;

In regards to the steep snow-field that must be traversed under the ridge-proper: How steep is it? Is a second tool required? I might try this route in early June,so I'll be bringing some pickets. My partners and I have little to no 'steep' ice experience and no second tools. Is it above 45 degrees? Awesome page BTW! Looking forward to this toure, if doable!!!! Thanks in advance for any responses!!!!!

Okay nevermind.... It was in plain site at the link above. :-)

That does look pretty steep with some considerable exposre. How hard would it be to go around it, staying on rock?

Thanks again!
