Kick ass rock climb up south Face (Jubilant Song). Sustained cracks, offwidth, roof traverse, hanging belay, overhang moves, cacti on route and a true summit made this an amazing adventure!

The third of three peaks (including Black Velvet), the wind was howling that day, so it lived up to its name.

Pretty tough climb and enjoyed the summit views. Was by myself for the entire time, one person was climbing the face on the south.

Climbed the peak in search of a geocache. Found the ammo can with the log about 300 feet from the geocache.

Date Climbed: Jan 31, 2009


Climbed with Meetup Hiking group lead by Branch Whitney.
Many scrambles, loose screes and bit exposure but nothing serious.
This hike was bit harder than I have expected. But it was very good hike.
Anyway, it was not Windy at all when we climbed.

First time was up the east face, down a bizarre canyon with an immense dryfall. Have also taken the regular route with LVMC, and done the east face again.

The East Face route has much more scrambling than the normal route, involves ridge traverse and offers some great views of Windy's North Face. It is not that easy to follow though.
The standard route is great for a quick and easy descent. A nice loop overall.

Diet Delight (Mar. 15, 2009). First 3 pitches were fun. Last pitch is very short (+scrambling). PITA descent for such a short route. Good beta here on SP by Dow. TR here.

Jubilant Song (Jan. 27, 2007). Shirley and I climbed this Herbst classic. Nice rotue but not that great IMHO. The only memorable pitch is the "5.5 traverse" under the roof....5.5 is one hell of a sandbag btw. My gimp foot was bothering me a lot on the slabby pitches.

Worked at an Internet cafe in Vegas during the morning, then headed out here for a short hike in the afternoon before flying up to OR for work. Fantastic hike with some excellent scrambling. Highly recommended (and I highly recommend to follow Courtney's class 3 variation on the hike up, too--much better than the trail).

Pay attention to the directions on here--the scramble up to the summit is really easy (little more than class 2), but class 4-5 terrain magically appears out of nowhere on the way down. There are some misleading cairns on the way down, so pay close attention to the way you come up. :-)

Highly recommend this peak. Saw a bunch of desert sheep on the way up - even got some video footage of them. DO NOT descend the rocky canyon immediately below the ramp without a rope. There's a 50+ foot vertical drop at the canyon mouth. You'll have to climb back up and out, with a couple of seriously badass boulders blocking the narrow canyon bottom. Even worse in a driving rainstorm and near darkness, but I finally found that one elusive handhold I needed to get out. The closest I've been to a SAR statistic in recent memory. Guess you're never too old to be stupid.

Very quick and easy, but more enjoyable than I'd expected. Saw a dead ringtail cat in the canyon on the approach.
