That's why it's a classic! The descent was not TOO bad until the saddle with Arrow. We heard later that we should've gone over to the Arrow side of the saddle for this descent.

Solo of Wham Ridge. Passed the "crux" before I even knew it was there. Nice, constant scrambling.

Peak #6 of 31 on 10 day trip.

Not nearly 5.4, and mostly class 3, but still a sweet route. Trip report.

Solo climb of Wham Ridge on a day trip from Molas TH. Descended via South Slopes route and "Dues Collector" in light rain. Stellar climbing on Wham Ridge, descent is not so great.

Mid July 2010 - I don't know how anyone can see a picture of Vestal, and not immediately hop in the car, drive to the trailhead, and climb the thing. Wham ridge was one of the best scrambles of my life, on one of the most scenic mountains.

Climbed directly up the center. Seemed like the most fun and it was! Did 8 pitches, about half of them simul-climbing.

I climbed Arrow, Vestal, and the 3 Trinities as a day hike from Molas Pass. Round trip time was just under 17 hours.

Took a slight variation of the classic climb by soloing up at an angle across the face for about 500' then moving to the arĂȘte. Alan lead throughout and did a great job as usual in approach shoes. The last 400' to the false summit was a loose mess. The downclimb on the standard route is a hellishly loose and scary mess. A lightening strike just below the summit sent a massive slide down the saddle between Vestal and Arrow. Thank goodness we were well below by that time.

A true classic. It was a test piece for me. My best day in mountains yet.
