east ridge scramble and traverse to crystal  Sucess!

Great ridge scramble! Very imposing south face on Father Dyer. Traverse to Crystal was pretty uninspiring though.

from Crystal  Sucess!

Spent 10 minutes on top due to storms.
Just another highpoint on a long ridge. Decent scramble though.

Memorial Day-  Sucess!

A rare solo rip for me, especially on skis. Climbed in the mist shooting for Crystal but surmounted only Father Dyer but had an "experience."

I wrote a blasphemous Trip Report here:

Father Dyer climb  Sucess!

This was one of my favorite climbs of the 2008 season. I enjoyed summiting with my usual suspect friends. The scrambling was terrific!

stormy adventure  Sucess!

NE ridge to Crystal. Winter storm blew and snowed all day. Made for a bit more excitement.

East Ridge  Sucess!

Combined with Crystal and Peak 10.
Some good scrambling, but it was over too quickly!

Via Mt. Helen  Sucess!

Combined with Helen and Crystal. Very cool ridge! Looped back via Crystal Peak trail and then Wheeler trail.

Via Crystal Peak Ridge  Sucess!

Enjoyed the hike over to Father Dyer from Crystal Peak. Weather was beginning to turn sour, however, so we bailed down a green but steep-as-all-git-out slope on the north side of the ridge between Fr. D and Mt. Helen. This was NOT anyone's favorite part of the trip (not on aging knees, at least). I especially love how Father Dyer sits out on his lonesome. Partners: Carol & Deb.

NE Ridge then on to Crystal  Sucess!

With Eric Holle. Plowed through a bit of snow to get those telemark legs ready for winter. NE ridge is much fun. FD Peak has a beautiful E face! Then on to Crystal Pk.

From Mt Helen  Sucess!

Traversed the ridge from Mt Helen. Ended up being far more committing than I expected, but mainly because I attempted to stay along the ridgeline proper rather than routefinding around obstacles. Ended up making one extremely thought-provoking downclimb along the way.

Father Dyer/Mt Helen  Sucess!

Climbed with gurlyclimber. We ascended the east ridge on Father Dyer Peak and then traversed the class 3 ridge over to Mt Helen and down. Some nice fun scrambling on mostly solid rock. The ridge traverse reminded me of a sort of mini-Ellingwood Ridge (LaPlata), a nice route!

Helen/Father Dyer/Crystal E Ridges  Sucess!

The ridge from Helen to Father Dyer rank as one of my favorites (gives Pacific's class III ridge a run for it's money!)on a 13er. It is as easy as class III or as hard as you want to make it (tower avoiding or climbing). I'll be back for the direct Father Dyer class III route!

Route Climbed: Crystal Peak East Ridge  Sucess!

Did the Helen, Father Dyer, Crystal Peak combination. The ridge in between Helen & Father Dyer was extreme fun. Very rugged & exposed.

Route Climbed: Northeast Ridge Date Climbed: 5 September, 2005  Sucess!

What an awesome climb. One of my favorite in the Ten Mile/Mosquito Range. Excellent Class 3 scrambling on solid rock for nearly 1000 ft to the summit. From there I continued on to Crystal, Peak 10 and Peak 9 before returning to the Spruce Creek TH via the Wheeler Trail.

Only saw one other person.

Route Climbed: Helen/Father Dyer ridge Date Climbed: July 4, 2005  Sucess!

Climbed Father Dyer as part of a long loop including Helen, Crystal, Pacific & Atlantic. Loved the scramble from Helen to Father Dyer! We finished with a traverse back east along Pacific's east ridge.
