Route Climbed: East Ridge Date Climbed: August 1970  Sucess!

First climb on a traverse of Longs, Pagoda and Chiefshead. Getting down the West Ridge of Pagoda to the Pagoda-Chiefshead Col is very interesting. The East Ridge of Chiefshead is a pleasant boulder hop.

I've climbed Chiefshead 3 more times since, including the 1st ascent of the 1500 foot flying buttress on the Southwest Face in 1989. We named the route,"The Warbonnet Ridge."

Route Climbed: Hourglass Ridge Date Climbed: June 2003  Sucess!

My first real mountain. Climbed it with a friend during a backpacking trip in Wild Basin. The Lion Lakes were incredibly beautiful, as was the view from the summit.
