successful east face approach  Sucess!

We went straight up the ascending cliff band of the east face. it was a bitch, but it was really fun.

Broads Fork  Sucess!

Up Broads Fork, took the Robinson Variation to the summits, then followed the standard Broads Fork route back down to make a loop. Others that day did the opposite direction.

Scratches and Bruises  Sucess!

Summitted both east and west peaks. Did the Robinson variation on the way up and standard route on the way down. Got off route a few times resulting in bushwacking and very scraped up legs since every plant up there has thorns and every rock has a sharp edge. On the way down I was hit by falling rock in the headwall section below the cottonwood ridge above the talus field. Thought it broke me hip... hurts like hell.

The scrambling on the north ridge sure beats the endless talus of the standard route.

Great Solo  Sucess!

A great and fun climb, much better in the snow then over the loose talus. It was cold, cloudy and I was all alone, didn't see anyone else all day. It was a lot of fun.

Close Call  Sucess!

Decided to hike the majestic twins during one of the early snow storms (first mistake) Hiked via Broads Fork till we reached pond in basin, then climbed west up steep slope to bonkers ridge. then climbed snow covered north ridge to East Summit. On the return we chose to return down a different way than we came (second mistake) and found ourselves on a ice & snow covered slab that cliffed out below us. Without crampons or ice axe we had no way to control a slide, and our efforts to navigate away from the slab didn't work. Both I and my buddy slid down the slope, but luckily neither slide resulted in injury. Walked back exhausted, still snowing.

Triple Traverse  Sucess!

Went up Tanners with a bunch of other SPers. Bagged Dromedary and Sunrise before traversing the ridgeline over to Broads -- summited by noon or so, then glissaded down Bonkers among the glide cracks. Great day in the mountains

Broads Fork  Sucess!

One of my all time favorites! I was feeling so great on this hike. Greg had told me all about this hike and I was pumped about doing it. We only saw one other person the whole day. The hike was amazing and the glissading made for a fast and fun descent. Words will never explain my feelings for this one!

Mutliple Routes  Sucess!

Standard Broads, Robison, Deaf Smith, Via triple traverse, Via Furgeson, Still need to to Lisa's, around 20 climbs to date.

Standard route w/ variation  Sucess!

I've climbed this mountain 5 times via a different route each time. Climb today with Lubos Pavel. We were headed up the standard Broads Fork route, but decided to break right up a small couloir about halfway up to the saddle. From there, we followed a small, rocky ridge to about 200 ft. below the East summit. Lots of sugary snow, but very nice conditions nonetheless.

Nice Views of the Great Salt Lake  Sucess!

May 27, 2011: Did the Triple Traverse with Joe B, and Matt V. The snow, even the avy debris, was very soft in Tanners, so the going was slow. Rather than go down Broads fork, we worked our way around the North side of Sunrise then up to the saddle between Sunrise and Dromedary and dropped into Tanners, so we did the Triple without a shuttle that way.

May 16, 2009 -- Peak Number 3 on the Triple Traverse. Did this peak as part of the Triple Traverse with a group of seven from SP. We had prime conditions.

September 6, 2008 -- Ascended up broad fork to the saddle between Sunrise and the Twins. From the saddle we hit the east twin and then the west twin.

Descended down the north ridge of the east twin (the Robinson Variation), and climbed the false twin then turned east and down to the lake.

Climbed four times, different routes  Sucess!

One of my favorites, I've attempted it five times:
1: July or August 1996 - camped at bottom of Broads Fork basin, ascended via Robinson Variation, descended standard route including a fun glissade.
2: September 1997 - camped again, rained out, didn't attempt summit
3: October 9, 2002 (solo) - a bit more than a foot of recent snow, bivied at the spring, began ascent of standard route, and ended up traversing across the slabs to the top of Bonkers. Ascended the north ridge and came down the east ridge. Got off-route to the south and dangled from limber pines back to the saddle.
4: May 4, 2008 as part the WMC Triple Traverse. This was the first time I continued to the west peak.
5: June 24, 2012 with my wife and friends via Robinson variation, including west peak.

many times

most recently with Gristle (Joe Bullough) on April 12, 2008. What a glorious day! Ask Joe about his lip.

Sketched Out

Oh so close on this one. After a dusting of snow fell a few days before, I decided conditions might still be ample to bag this one from BCC via the standard route. It was another beautiful fall afternoon, I made good time up to the alpine cirque and started directly up the east slopes to the summit ridge. At around 400 feet below the ridge it started to get REAL sketchy with 3 inches of powder covering slick rocks. I had neither my axe nor crampons so I elected to ditch the effort about 100 feet below the ridgeline. Still an awesome time:
