adamschneiderRough trail, fun summit  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 29, 2017


The trail up from the river to Headlee Pass was not especially fun: lots of rocks and repetitive switchbacks. But I really enjoyed the final stretch from Vesper Creek to the summit: first a steep trail, then snowfields, then a final scrambly bit. After Vesper, I traversed to the north below Wolf Peak and then went up Sperry Peak.

Probably the easiest peak I've climbed. Basically a walk up. I want to go to find some garnets next time on the south side.

seanpeckhamhiking route, fog, still spectacular  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 5, 2015


Couldn't see anything on the way up, and it was still fun. It partly cleared on the way down, and that made the descent just as fun, because there wasn't the usual "I've already seen this" feeling. Spectacular place.

Hiked up Vesper Peak yesterday. Some snow on the steep slabs near the summit. Just needed poles and gaiters.

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.

Est. Date

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

VinnyNorth face  Sucess!
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.

Headed up to do the north face, ended up just going up the hiking route. I'll be back...
