From Colchuck  Sucess!

Easy descent from Colchuck, then up the gully below the connecting ridge. Crossed over and traversed the top of the small glacier, easy scrambling to the top. Nice view across the basin.

super fun!  Sucess!

finally got on this one. backbone ridge with fin direct, with jay jay. fun, continuous climbing, with a couple of cruxes. off-width would be an .8 in the valley, but whatever- still a fun pitch, maybe the funnest on the climb. started 1st roped pitch, which i actually did first w/o rope and in approach shoes, to make sure we were actually in the right place, confirmed by off-width, before coming back down and belaying jay jay up. topped out 18.25. worked by the time we were back at the tent, shortly after midnight. especially after 2 hours of sleep the night before. epic day.

East Route  Sucess!

Last 20' of snow was steeper than I thought it would be - good runout though. Rock section was a walk-up path with a class 2/3 move to sit on the summit. Perfect weather and great views all around. Aasgard still sucks :)

Colchuck - Pandora - Aasgard  Sucess!

Great weather for an early season outing. Our group was surprisingly the only ones on the mountain that day. Lot's of majestic views and plenty imposing terrain. We did a scramble bypass at the top of Pandora's box to avoid the down climb.
This was a Mountaineers club climb.

Triple plan  Sucess!

Planned on triple, but almost got taken out by rock fall at the entry, so we did NE couloir instead

East Route  Sucess!

Less snow than expected. I switched trail runners to mountaineering boots at Asgard Pass.

Winter has Arrived  Sucess!

I decided to come back for this peak which had a nice fresh dusting of snow. Near the summit was about a foot or so of snow. Great day out!

Backbone ridge  Sucess!

Fun climb. Leading the chimney/OW without a #6 sucked. Beautiful view of Colchuck lake though.

Via Aasgard  Sucess!

LONG DAY!!! Decent glissade from the ridge to the pass. Great views! First Bulger in a long while. Hopefully the next break between Bulgers will be much shorter.

Triple C   Sucess!

Bailed on the three C's due to warm weather and rock fall, ended up climbing east ridge. Was spectacular being on the the summit at sunrise (w/ gcap & vertigo soul).

During a ski trip  Sucess!

Date is a wild guess. Climbed it via easy side while hanging out in Enchantment Basin for several days, skiing all over and climbing easier stuff.

Gorgeous day.  Sucess!

Took the west route and was surprised at how much more work it is to get to the summit from Pandora's Box. Great views of the lakes make it all worth it.
