S-N traverse  Sucess!

Part of a traverse from Eastpost to Northpost. Fun scrambling near the top of the south ridge. Since Northpost doesn't have its own page, I'll add this here: the Brenta-Northpost traverse is no harder than 4th class, but with sneaky route-finding. Follow the ridge to the saddle. Just before where you are blocked by a vertical step (possibly with a slung block nearby), descend to a grassy ledge on the NW side. Make an ascending traverse to the final, white headwall of Northpost, then follow an improbable ledge around to the left again, before scrambling gullies/ridges to the summit. Trip report.

solo linkup  Sucess!

Stephanie and I climbed the SE spur and S ridge on our way back to Crescent Spire. Outstanding rock, aesthetic climbing. What a great day....

Another Fine Day....  Sucess!

This route was #5 of 6 in a 6-day trip to the Bugs with Brian (dunsum). We found a lot of chossy, loose rubble, but all's well that ends well eh? Definitely off the beaten path--we didn't see another group all day, though we did hear one party on a spire in the same area at one point.

Another Fine Day in the Bugaboos  Sucess!

Climbed this not-so-well-traveled route with Brenton Peterson. I think we bungled the start, but it turned out fine nonetheless. A fun "adventure" route with a great summit view of the upper Vowell Glacier and its peaks, and the north-east side of Bugaboo Spire

South ridge  Sucess!

Great day out with Sophie on this isolated peak. Climbing was relatively easy although route finding on the headwall to the Crescent-Brenta col from the basin was a little tricky in one spot. From the col straightforward 3rd and 4th class scrambling will get you to the top fairly quickly.
