awilsondcVesper and Sperry  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 23, 2014


I summited Vesper and Sperry, the classic combo! I though Vesper was the better climb, but Sperry had the better summit. Beautiful day! I went early, and hiked fast... I had both summits and both routes to myself for the ascents. I liked the slabs on Vesper but was a little disappointed there wasn't more class 3, but due to the low angle this would be a great climb to introduce someone to scrambling. 7 1/2 hours car to car with about 1 hour total spent on the summits.

Met dense fog after Headlee Pass which made for an eerie climb to the summit.

Date is a wild guess, was long time ago. Standard scramble route. What a blast.

Was planning on Sperry and Vesper but decided to head back after summiting Vesper, still quite a bit of snow up there and i hadn't brought crampons.

Made it alone, but not alone on top. Excellent scrambling along the ridge connecting to Sperry peak

Date Climbed: Sep 5, 2011


Good times with Oyvind. crossing the moat to 1969 route was the spicy crux. Aesthetic and varied route in an awesome setting.
should have brought more double runners. Sword at the summit was novel. 10hrs car to car- I think we made time on fun boot skiing.
We were able to be first responders on a feel-good rescue en route home (Robe canyon twisted ankle EMRU mission) to boot.

Great July snow climb. Frozen Vesper Lake and a fantastic glissade. Did I mention great views and a bluebird day!

I've been up this peak many times and never grow tired of it, but I very much like the winter ascent. The glissade down headlee Pass was very good.

Snidely Whiplash

If melted out, the lake in the basin is just beautiful and a nice dip on a hot day. The white rock is sublime.

Climbed the North Face from the glacier. Three pitches in loose gullys, four nearly unprotectable pitches on super clean slabs.

Not sure what day I summited, but I know for certain it was some time in 2006. I had attempted in 2005 but I was still in my infancy stage of hiking and I had no idea what I was doing back then. Attempted again with my family in August 2008. Gorgeous! I love the lake, Sperry, the alpine scramble and small glacier below... always gorgeous from up there. Would love to try it in winter some time.

beaudaddy85Sunrise Mine/ Headlee Pass Route  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Mar 5, 2010


Hit snow pack at Wirtz basin and was consistent to the summit. Headlee Pass was the toughest section of the trip. Snow broke through either 3 ft or was pure ice the whole way up, steep incline in many spots. Easy going down to the lake, moderate, steady incline to the summit. Thin snow over the slabs around the summit. Better snow conditions on that side of Headlee. Some of the talus fields are melting underneath, so be careful going over snow bridges. Some spots have 4' or 5' hollow sections that look firm on the surface. Great day, Great views!!!
