Bill OttRoute Climbed: east slope Date Climbed: June, 1964  Sucess!

Bill Ott

Carlos was 15, and I was 16 when we broke off from our x-country team at Elizabeth Lake. We scrambled up the east slope to the summit. Too stupid to admit being scared, we took turns sitting on the very north end of the summit blocks with our feet hanging off into the abyss. It was breathe taking. I left my driver's permit under a rock to prove we were there. The coach was not happy.

Great summit! Just 100 ft. below Cathedral. I did it with my friends Ryan McCourt, and Allison. Fun, but cold in the shade & wind! The summit is interesting -- it's more broken than you think from the view of it from the Meadows, and there are 3 big, thin plates standing upright. Wild!

My first class 4 peak, and it ended up (thanks to the kindness of strangers) being my first roped climb too. I headed up to see if I was comfortable scrambling this stuff (solo) yet, but came to some rock I wasn't convinced I could downclimb. Chickening out, I met a couple coming up--they'd backed off twice before (this made me feel better), brought a rope this time, and kindly invited me to rope in.

I must have found it a bit spicy even with the rope, because my mouth was bone dry by the time I reached the summit. The downclimb was easier than I expected. I was glad I'd brought my rock shoes though... with my climbing skills, I need all the help I can get!

Fun climb! The approach was slow because of the abundant snow from the April storms. The summit was clear of snow. One tricky fourth class move involved squeezing between two rocks.

A fun little piece of rock in a spectacular setting. The first peak of my 15 summit Cathedral Range Traverse.

One of my first roped climbs, John and I found an easy class 5 route on the east side above Elizabeth Lake. We couldn' t manage to make the class 4 exit off the south edge of the ridge, so we roped up and downclimbed the east side. We planned to climb Cockscomb as well, but we gave up after climbing the intermediate summit (Mt. Althuska) between the two. Quite lame for an all day effort, but still quite fun! Trip Report.
