DigglerGreat peak!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 25, 2012


with Faith, via new Rock of Ages trail (#429). New trail (props out to the forest service!) made it possible to take a trail to circumnavigate cockroach Nichols' private property. Well-marked trail to Rock of Ages col. Left TH @ 13.15 following long & late previous day (back @ TH/camp 23.31 after LONG day ascending/descending Lizard Head). Weather cooperated, though, & trail very easy to follow (easy route-finding from Rock of Ages col as well). Great day! Glad for your company, F.

The first peak I took Josh on for our Colorado trip. He did great. The summit scramble was fun and the views of the El Diente/Wilson Traverse was great.

Awwww... This was the hardest peak of the trip. Capitol Peak was much much easier by comparison... but then again I was not used to the altitude. I got around 500 feet from the summit which Matt Lemke suggested I stop. After he continued I passed out and woke up feeling very sick feeling. One of the worst summit attempts I've had in a long time. But the mountain itself was good quality.

Left Navajo Lake at 6am and got to the summit and 9:15am. Great summit was some of the most incredible views. We did this for a warm up for the Mt Wilson-El Diente Traverse. The day we summited was supposed to have awful weather (50% chance of thunderstomrs/rain. We had a little bit of rain on the summit, but nothing threatening hit us tell we started rolling down the hill. The Rock of Ages Mine is awesome..great place for rock hounding!

SarahThompsonSummer & winter  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 26, 2006


8/26/06 - Standard route from camp at Navajo Lake. Bad (electric) weather, shouldn't have climbed. Hid out in the little cabin below the Rock of Ages saddle to wait out storms on the way up and down!

1/14/12 - Winter ascent from Cross Mountain Trailhead. Dropped into upper Bilk Basin and climbed south slopes to join the standard route on the southwest ridge.

Went to scout it out Friday before trying for 3 14ers Saturday and would up doing the route. Hailstorm and thunder up top after an 11 am start. Plane wreckage. Scrambly but super-short from Rock of Ages saddle.

cftbqNew Rock of Ages Trail  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 16, 2011


Just when we were ready to suck it up and use the longer Bilk Basin approach, the FS *finally* re-opened the Silver Pick Basin approach, via the re-routed trail, starting farther west near Elk Creek. The crux climb from the false summit turned out to be harder than I had expected. 14er #49 for me, #48 for Trisha.

Gorgeous colors, lovely backpack. A little snow on the north side as we descended before the final ascent made this quite exciting!
