Beautiful water approach and a stellar view from basecamp. Weather threatening we managed to climb to Drizzlepuss but got stormed off shortly after that. If you do this route this time of year don't forget your bug spray. The mosquitoes followed us up to at least 10500 ft. We also noticed the route still had a large cornice above the face.
Canoe, raspberries, beautiful camp (just a trickle of water), amazing sunrise from Drizzlepuss, great view from the summit with a good friend all to ourselves... Did it in 3 enjoyable days. Fantastic Mountain!
Bushwhacking around Leigh Lake is bad, but the Skillet descent rules. Climbing the West Horn on the way is well worth it. Trip report.
Climbed the CMC. We didnt acutally rope up more that a couple times (Drizzlepuss mainly). The view from the top was unreal and we had perfect weather. One of the most fun climbs i have ever done!
Very nice climb, though the climb out, up, and over Drizzlepuss was the best. There were 4 other parties on the rocks with us which made it a bit crowded at times.
Fun paddle and hike. Didn't really find any climbing.
Beautiful mountain--canoe, hike and climb--fun stuff.
Amazing, loved the whole thing,, canoeing, drizzle puss, and nearly getting swept of by a falling cornice on the CMC face. Great weather
2 day "surf and turf"....gotta love the tetons (especially with a water approach and fantastic climbing)
I thought it was great. The tricky part is getting the ropes down from the rappels (as did sampage below.) The driz adds some complexity to the route as well. Slow chess.
Great fun although the tech pitches are short and alot of the face has class four.
Just an awesome mountain!
Fun climb. Canoed across Jenny Lake (ran into a little weather on the way) then hiked up to camp. Climbed the route the next day.
Tracey Silberman and I climbed this route over three days. A friend canoed us to the base and we slogged up to the CMC camp on the first day. On the second day we climbed the delightful route, but were delayed on the descent by stuck ropes. We planned to rendezvous with our friend, and most importantly his canoe, at the end of the second day, but got back to camp too late. So on the third day we had to bushwack back. Ugh. Overall, an awesome experience.
