one day trek. Long but so worth it.
Fun day out climbing. Got off route coming down asgard pass in the dark, got back to the car around midnight. Otherwise a great day of climbing and a sweet summit.
Unsure of exact date. Camping in Colchuck parking lot.
11 hours car to car. Took the Southeast route up from Aasgard Pass.
08/31/13 via Backbone Ridge (5.9) Great climb.
02/21/15 via Triple Couloir's WOW. SOOOOO GOOD
0?/??/16 via Backbone Ridge with Sam
06/17/17 via standard route with Scott and Derek
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.
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.
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 :)
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.
Planned on triple, but almost got taken out by rock fall at the entry, so we did NE couloir instead
Less snow than expected. I switched trail runners to mountaineering boots at Asgard Pass.
much easier than i had expected
Great views and some fresh show
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!
Hiked up this peak under a fresh layer of fall snow. It was beautiful
Fun climb. Leading the chimney/OW without a #6 sucked. Beautiful view of Colchuck lake though.
Pretty Pinnacles Goats and Painfully Rocky Slopes
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.
From the parking lot to the summit and back again. long day. Great peak!
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).
