Completed the traverse with a team of two. Descent was down the east side of the ridge (near Grouse Lakes).
This was a great ridge traverse with some fun and exposed sections. With a team of seven were able to complete 3/4 of the one mile traverse before reaching our turn around time.
Took alpine climbing class with SMG. Sunny & windy.
One of my first hikes. Me and a friend scrambled to the top of it by something class 4ish..in late 09
Great climbing area with excellent rock. Long approach but will definitely have the place to yourself if you go.
Very fun climbing!
Lead two and a half pitches to the summit, followed by Samantha and Ryan. Awesome crack climbing on beautiful Tuolumne-like rough granite. Great Views of Lake Tahoe and snow-laced Desolation Wilderness peaks.
Solo, pretty day. Nice and cool. The mountain to myself.
A challenge for a first crack-dominated climb period (let alone /leading/ your first crack climb). Did the whole thing in 2 pitches. The summit ridge is fun! No one else around on a Saturday... lovely views.
I was nursing a hangover, but it didn't matter. The beautiful fall weather, superb setting and good friends made the climb a wonderful experience (again).
