Dow WilliamsWolfs Head Solo  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 17, 2017

Dow Williams

Sandwiched between Feather Buttress and the N. Face of Mitchell for 3 days of climbing. Great day out. Passed about 6 parties to be the first off the route on a Friday in good weather in mid August. It is popular. From an onsight soloing perspective, the pitch that traverses across the ledge and onto the face on the right side, once you tunnel through the chimney, felt the most exposed. Less of a hand rail/crack compared to any of the other traverses enroute. Have to admit everyone was quite courteous, not normally the case when you pass that many soloing.

SawtoothSeanEast Ridge and West  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 1, 2015


After getting jammed behind party of 8 on Pingora we went over and climbed most of East ridge. Had to bail because darkness past piton pitch but came back and reached summit via the west ridge on the day we did overhanging tower. Either way, pretty time consuming routes the first time you do it. Piton pitch was spicy.

We spent 4 days and 3 nights in the cirque. We hiked in late in the after noon on the first day and got to our camp by dinner. We did Pingora the first day and had the tower to ourselves. The second day, we did Wolfshead. We left at 5 and got back to camp at 9:30pm. It was a stupidly long day. We got off route multiple times and had issues with the grassy ledges on the approach. There were also two other parties on the route. While on the narrow catwalk at the start, a massive snow field collapse right below and it was incredible! This always an amazing climb! The exposure is unreal

Lead in approach shoes. Fun, moderate pitches with big exposure.

Found a pretty straight forward route for the Grassy Ledges. Roped up for 20' or so of ~5.4 at the top of the grassy ledges just to be safe.

Phenomenal climb with wild exposure! Used the grassy ledges approach and ended up roping up for 3 short pitches of sketchy, slick climbing. The Tiger Tower approach may have been the better option. Simulclimbed from start of route proper to first tower as well as some at the end. Friendly skies all day. Perfect. Incredible.

Fun Climb. The wind was a bit challenging at times...sounded like a Walmart shopping bag whipping by but you could never see it. As for the climb, Whimsical yes, with a few mildly terrifying traverses to keep you on the tips of your toes (literally).

Climbed the East Ridge with marauders and GlennMerrill on our last day in the Cirque. We approached via Tiger Tower, which was actually really fun climbing. The actual route didn't disappoint either, although we were watching the weather a lot of the time. Good, varied climbing. An involved descent, but that's part of the fun.

Very cool climb on a beautiful sunny day. Probably the hardest 5.6 I've ever climbed. "Piton Pitch" got my attention.

Approached via Tiger Tower gully, the grassy ledges approach was too wet. Superb climbing, although the weather caused some stress. Fortunately it didn't rain until we reached the col on the descent. Great climb overall.

Climbed the East ridge after assuming it was a grade III. Had an epic descent, getting back to camp around 1:30am... Absolutely stellar climb though -- incredible exposure, and its position is unmatched in the Cirque

I loved it! Most rewarding climb yet! Hope to do it again someday.

I loved this climb. You get to make every kind of climbing move in the book. The weather was great. One of the best climbs I have done.

GCutforthGreat Day,  Sucess!


We had a great day. I loved weaving through the summit blocks and the wild exposure moving up the ramp earlier on. We were back in camp by 12:30 pm leaving enough time for me to run up the Skunk Knob. Is that deja vu?

We had a great day in perfect weather and were back at camp by 12:30 p.m. - my partner even climbed the Skunk Knob that afternoon; not me, I slept.
