relicWest gully  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 28, 2015


Via standard west face main gully. This route description is excellent, one of the best I’ve read that had to deal with such a messy, complicated route. Anyone contemplating this climb would do themselves a favor by studying this info carefully.

Date Climbed: Jul 18, 2015
Climbed the standard "brown gully" with a good friend of mine. Was a perfect day with high clouds in the morning, followed by clear skies at the top. Solid, Grippy rock, with decent exposure

BKW"Brown Gulley"  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 12, 2015


We did this as a combo with Golden Horn and almost Hardy (that's another story). This route has lots of sustained class three with plenty of exposure and the need of continual route finding. Luckily, the rock stays grippy when wet. The rock in the gulley is mostly solid except for a set of basketball-sized blocks, inexplicably balanced on every ledge, waiting to be kicked down.
The summit of this mountain is top notch. Great views, fantastic exposure, and an impressive summit cairn.

Date Climbed: Jul 21, 2014


Scrambled up to the ridge south of Tower from the PCT, then found a meandering low 5th class way up the south face. I felt bad for not tagging Golden Horn while out there, but I had a late start and needed an easy day. The standard gully is a bowling alley -- I'm glad no one else was around. Trip report.

SW gully upper south ridge (10/2/2004):

After some route finding fun we spotted the 5.6 pitch high up. The climbing was fun if you have your rock shoes with you. Rapped down the summit block. There is a lot of loose rock filling the gullies so a small group and helmets are a good idea. This was the first summit in 2004 according to the summit log, nobody climbs this prominent peak?

West gully (10/2/2004):

One of our team member could not make it up the 5.6 pitch with stiff boots so decided to give the west gully a try for another summit attempt. Two of us found the gully and scrambled it up which got steeper as we got higher. Right below the summit the rock got solid and fun to climb. Made it to the top at 5pm and came back at dark. Twice the summit in a day and nobody else climbed it this year, strange...
