Climbed this hill out and back with a buddy, Ian Damon. Went up Gravel bar Creek and then scrambled the ridge from about 3 miles up along the creek. It was about 12 hours with 21 miles under our feet. Not something i would ever want to do a second time. But this area is rugged and beautiful. No one is out there!
Climbed with Chris (Morlow) - it was simply amazing to finally summit this incredible mountain!
Tim and I got snowed off about a mile from the summit in 2010. We went back in 2011. Tim, injured from the day before, turned back less than halfway there, and storm clouds were all around. I considered not going on alone but realized I would not want to come back for a third try. Despite some brief showers, the weather mostly cooperated, including a thunderstorm one drainage away staying away.
