In April, wet conditions that included blowing snow, numb fingers, and treacherous rock made me decide against the final scramble to the summit, so today I went back, again facing wet conditions, and got to the top. There was enough rain to make water flow visibly and loudly over dryfalls nearby, so that was a little icing on the day.
This is another route Davis and I found. You have no idea how much work it took to make this route safe. It was a death trap of loose boulders before we cleaned it. I have lost track how many times I have done it.
Standard route + South Wilson Date Climbed: Mar 18, 2004
After enjoying the summit of White Rock Pinnacle, we continued to the South Summit of Mount Wilson and descended back to the car via First Creek Canyon. It turned out to be a nice loop, but I was disappointed that we ran out of time to hit the main summit as well. A fun day in good company.
