Birthday Bonus  Sucess!

Sarah and I completed a perfect day by climbing this perfect peak after climbing Cathedral. It doesn't get much better than this.

North Face  Sucess!

Exposure and snowy ledges made for a few spicy moments. A long awaited summit for me - lived up to expectations. Thanks to Greg for returning the day after climbing Cathedral.

5.4 route  Sucess!

My friends took me up Eichorn a couple of years ago. This time I led the 5.4 route. It was a lot of fun. One pitch of 60m rope gets to the top, with a bit of rope drag.

North Face  Sucess!

Climbed the North Face with Tana after climbing the SE Buttress on Cathedral. Strong winds picked up as we climbed but still a great day out.

West Pillar 5.9  Sucess!

Tougher than we expected, esp. the 2nd pitch. The "rib wrestling" on the last pitch might be my favorite part, but it wasn't my lead ;-)

Great ending to a great day. More exhilerating than Cathredrals SE buttress.

5.9 offwidth, my favorite! A suprisingly good, although short Sierra route. Had to pass stinky pack animals on the approach.

A very enjoyable Rt. Did the standard West Pillar rt. with Hugh Sakols. Avoided the 5.8 flare on pitch 3 by continuing the traverse to the right and around a corner. Fun cracks led straight up to the top of pitch 3.

Soloed just behind Mike Shaffer (YMG) and his client. Snagged the last summit entry in the register (simple fate). Downclimbed same route. Beautiful late season weather!

Ya Dave, it was fun climbing this and celebrating your retirement on top!! The champagne and block ice was kinda heavy to climb with, but worth it!!

Whoopee!! Freedom from Uncle Sam's Misguided Children. Celebrated my retirement from the military after 20 years of service on top of Eichorn. Those that shared the moment: Craig Peer, Michele Beaty, Roger Hayashi and Jason "Fall Guy" Laird. Thanks to Craig and Alice, we enjoyed champagne on the summit. Michele did her best impression of "The Mummy Returns". BTW Chele, nice job climbing with your hand in a cast!! Sorry, the summit register wasn't signed in blood this year....

Partner: Steve Reynolds



1.5 pitches. 4 old pitons just past belay, around on the NW corner. Perfect weather. Great summit with especially interesting register. Dragged a 8-9 ml rope for the 165 ft. double-rope rap off the top, which was well-protected with slings & backed-up with double rap rings.



I've wanted to do this route for a long, long time -- it was worth the wait.

As Bob posted, I got the date wrong when signing the register in BLOOD! Walt Starr Jr. would be proud! But somebody had to be the 'tough guy' in this trio of misfits. Hey!....at least there's DNA evidence I was there!

Soloed with Michael and Dave. Michael wanted to climb this one badly, so somehow it grew to include Cathedral, Echo Ridge, Cockscomb, and Unicorn. There was no pen or pencil in the register, so Sargeant Dave went for the Semper Fi move and cut himself to provide a useable medium with which to leave our mark. Trip Report
