Rocky Alps

Did the Triple Traverse going up the Robinson Variation and down via Lake Blanche, which was a very rewarding and fun scramble. See "Good Things Come in Threes" trip report for details.

We started at Broad's Fork trailhead and did the Robinson route up the East Twin, then over to Sunrise and Dromedary and then down to Lake Blanche. It was a great day with perfect temperatures.

after a number of doubles, finally a Triple. Broads Fork, Robinson route to East Twin, then standard to Dromedary & down to Lake Blanche. Visited W Twin too - does that make it a Quadruple? WIth Dennis et al. WMC.

6/5/2013 Dromedary, Sunrise, and Twin Peaks in that order. On a solo mission I gained the saddle between Sunrise and Dromedary, via Broads Fork. From Dromedary I traversed over Sunrise to Twin. I have done Sunrise and Dromedary a number of times from the Twin/ Sunrise saddle but this was my first trip working my way East to West. Thought it was all great except trying to find a good line to down climb the West buttress of Sunrise. I found myself backtracking quite a bit in that short section in order to get down safely. It is much easier to pick out a good line looking up it as oppose to looking down.

I had been thinking about this route for a couple years now, every time I went up Twin Peaks. I finally made the traverse on a gorgeous day. Kept going across the ridge and dropped down above Lake Blanche.

Up Tanners and down Broads Fork, with MVH, Mooner, Garrett, and Lana. I've done lots of doubles, but this was my first triple.

Probably the most fun spring climb I've ever done. Started up Tanners @6am with crampon and trekking poles, swapped to ice axes near Dromedary all the way thru BF Twins then after a long glissade from the BF saddle snowshoed till the snow disappeared. Gorgeous views/weather. 9hrs start to finish. Trip planned by Matt Van Horn (thanks Matt)

We went up on a Monday, got rejected, then saw that some people summitted Wednesday. So Thursday night, me and Scotteech decided to give it a go. Left the car at 3 AM, traversed the tripleness, and hitchhiked from Mill B back up LCC.

oh man. i made it. barely. up broad's fork, up to the saddle, up to twin peaks, then back to the saddle and around the back of sunrise and to the summit. that's where it began to get nasty.
from sunrise to dromedary I had to downclimb some scary nasty cliffs, i was alone which was not smart. then up dromedary, and then off the southern-east side of dromedary i hit some cliff bands again and found myself sketchily downclimbing again. overall took me about 16 hours.

Great day, Grizz's small slide led us to take safer, but definitly much longer and more arduous route around Jepson's Folley. Tons of huge relatively recent wet slides on the way down boads

A big day. Completed the TT with mtnrunr, Joe, Dustin (Apachedino) and some other friends of mtnrunr (Grizz). Grizz took a sketchy slide off the Jepsen's west buttress and was able to self-arrest. Could have been bad.

Moogie737Traditional route up Tanners Gulch and down Broads Fork  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 7, 2010

Moogie737

What a day! Five started, four finished. Twelve hours of climbing, cramponing, postholing, kick-stepping, sunblock slathering and snowshoeing. Worth every hour. This was my second time doing this route (May 2007 the first) and with the deep snow pack and the warm conditions, this time was more difficult. Thanks to Lana, Dave, Robert & Alex for the tremendous moral support. #3 May 2009 W/ Dave & Christine #4 5-7-10 w/ Joe Bullough - heavy new snow from a week earlier left us with mucho trailbreaking on corniced-ridges. The exit on the East Twin Peak north ridge was quite the hairy thing. :)

seanpeckhamWalt's '08 trip from Tanners Gulch
Date Climbed: May 4, 2008

I broke my sunglasses and dropped my lens cap down Tanners Gulch; retrieving that and hacking up a way to keep from frying my eyes put me behind, when I was already one of the slower members of this very strong group, so I opted to skip Dromedary after getting above the cliff onto the ridge. So for me it was a Double Traverse. After that I made it to the west Twin and down. My first taste of "real" mountaineering, I bit off almost more than I could chew, but it was very rewarding.
