Route Climbed: N Face Date Climbed: August 1, 2002  Sucess!

Sweet but short route. The traverse beneath Boston royally sucked. Excellent conditions... spent the night wrapped up in foil like a burrito and lead up the first 500' in Vasque Sundowners (these made the approach and exit pretty darned easy) with SMC crampons. We had four picket placements for the entire route and this was mainly to protect the one crevasse (to add some spice to the relatively easy trip) and to swap out leads. Last 200 feet had ice beneath two feet of soft snow. Excellent day and views. Accessing Sahale Arm from the SW slopes of Buckner had us ascending steep snow slopes with some funny tracks left by an apparently glissading mountain goat.

Route Climbed: North Face Date Climbed: July 15, 2002  Sucess!

Summited on a beautiful morning after bivying on the Sahale - Boston col. 1300 feet of good cramponing snow up to the summit and awesome views. We downclimbed our ascent route and then went back across the Boston Glacier and bagged Boston Peak.
