Re: Route?

You mean the crack up the middle? I haven't heard of one, but I have been thinking about it since first seeing this peak last summer. The route I took is out of frame left, and I know of a another route (class 2-3) that is out of frame right. That middle line though...someday.

Re: Route?

Any more beta on the corner chimney? Rating, gear, etc? It must be quite a route (six pitches?) I'd really like to climb it this summer.

Re: Route?

Looking forward to hearing about it.

btw pitons do not necessarily equal aid.

Looks like a proud line!

Re: Route?

I think there is a 10 [or so] pitch 5.9-10 just left of the giant gash [center]put up in the late 70`s early 80`s by the some of Blodgett hard men. I have only heard rumor of it though. Luke and I climbed a steep couloir on the NW side, and there is unlimited potential on vertical granite just over the right sky line.

This is the stuff climbing dreams are made of.
