Awesome Autumn Climb?  Sucess!

Who'da thunk it? Turned out to be sweet conditions! Enough snow to avoid scree, enough rock to keep it exciting, non-threatening weather, dry approach hike. I couldn't imagine it any better! I recommend light rack and small rope in the Autumn. With Jim C.

Great Conditions  Sucess!

My wife and I found excellent snow conditions. The recent cool spell meant super hard snow with even a few icy spots. We only saw two others on the climb. A guide and his client that we passed before the fork. The hard snow made the steep parts easy. The rock step is super melted out with lots of loose stuff. Great route.

With Adam. Fun snow climb, but the early June snow required postholing much of Flattop trail--irritating. Should have glissaded down Tyndall Glacier! Now I know!

Holy Scenic  Sucess!

The hike into the climbing area is spectacular. The climb itself is gorgeous. The spines of rock create beautiful couloirs that hold great snow. This route was easy/moderate snow/ice. The mixed stuff was SHORT- 10 feets or so. Watch that cornice up top!
