Eastern climb  Sucess!

Super short climb but really fun. That ascent can suck it. 3550' in 1.25 miles. That's no joke.

drank tea on Cofeepot  Sucess!

Nice views from the top, chimney super easy (no rope or gear needed). Duchess waited for me below the chimney, and then we spend over an hr sitting below and admiring the scenery and clouds moving.

Right crack  Sucess!

A perfect-sized crack for me without my backpack. Remarkably secure climbing for such horrid rock. Trip report.

East Face  Sucess!

Solo climb to the summit of Coffeepot and Teakettle. Nice short summit pitch, long and loose approach/descend.

Nice addition...

...after Teakettle. The chimney is short and easy (5.nadda). Soloed up and rapped off. Be careful not to knock the loose stuff down on your buddy in the chimney below you! My wife was less than impressed with the few things I sent down and the lack of room to dodge. Oops! :)

Not a coffee drinker...  Sucess!

... but loved Coffeepot. Too bad the chimney wasn't any longer, but still worth the scree slog to get up there. Great views of Teakettle.

cool climb  Sucess!

A sweet but short climb. Very enjoyable.
Decided to climb this instead of Potosi.

Cool mini-climb x 3  Sucess!

9/1/07 - Nabbed this strange little peak on my 2nd trip to climb nearby Teakettle. Ran into chicagotransplant, shanahan96, skasgaard & company in the vicinity. Took the standard crack route. The weather cooperated long enough to make a quick climb up impressive Potosi afterwards.

5/9/09 - Nice little consolation prize when snow conditions shut us out of Potosi's North Couloir. The short 5th class pitch seemed so much easier this time despite my big boots.

6/11/10 - Dessert after climbing Potosi's North Couloir. My first lead :)

squeeze  Sucess!

make sure to do it first, so you can throw pebbles at your friends while they're wedged in the crack, unable to return fire

Oversized Crack  Sucess!

Climbed after Teakettle with Skasgaard, Shanahan96 and Jamie Nellis. Ended up face climbing the inside wall of the crack, its that wide!

tough crack climb  Sucess!

added coffeepot to the teakettle outing. not a long climb(15-20 feet) by any stretch, but it was a challenging lead(5.5) for me.

jamie and mike climbed a line deeper in the crack and found easier climbing, somewhere in the 5.3 range. a fun add-on to a great experience!

Eastern face/crack  Sucess!

Super short climb up a fairly wide crack. Solid rock for counter-pressure (wiggle-room) to the exceedingly small summit.
Placed one piece of pro. A little tricky getting out of the crack but no big deal. Quick rap.
They should call this "Coffee grounds" Was kinda surprised at how black the 'sand/rock' was at the base. Same people as with Teakettle.
