I found US Grant to be the best of the Ice Lake Basin peaks. The approach was not nearly as tedious as the others where talus is concerned, which made the saddle easy to get to. The ridge was fun and the crux surprisingly solid.

lovely scramble with Patrick, very easy and short climbing section, no rope needed, and very obvious route finding with frequent cairns on the ridge

Climb with RasGoat & Paul Knill. Great Day, great summit with just enough intrigue on the summit. Island Lake is gorgeous.

V2 then the East Ridge of US Grant, to V4. Followed the ridge almost all of the way to Pilot Knob, but had to descend and bagged her.

Rope definitely NOT needed.

"V4", US Grant and "V2" with Steve, great loop of peaks. US Grant is a fun peak to climb, crux was not too difficult, but a steep step! Great views of Ice Lakes Basin from the top.

climbed U.S. Grant's southwest ridge during a loop with V4 and V2. the crux step(4th class-low 5th, easily argued both ways) was quite interesting with ball bearing scree all over the ledges and no usable handholds higher up. the death cookies in the final gully didn't inspire much confidence either!

and yes, i loved the climb! when are we going back rodenak?

Climbed "V4", descended loose crap over to US Grant, climbed standard route, then traversed mostly on ridge to "V2". The connecting ridge held some fun 4th class scrambling. Island Lake was beautiful.

I must say this is one of my favorite 13ers to date. We traverse over to US Grant from V4, which is heinously loose. From the saddle, a strong climbers trail keeps the routefinding easy. The crux 12 ft crack climb is hard 4th class if you go up the left one and low 5th class on the right one. Very rewarding summit. I didn't feel the need for a rope even on the downclimb, and I am not a huge fan of exposure.

Excellent day in the mountains. The crux section was dry, and the talus slope up to the saddle was still snow-covered for the most part, so it made for a nice snow climb. I'd call the crux 5.0-5.2, not 4th class, but that's me.
