Awesome Area  Sucess!

My first climbing in the Palisades. Heading back to do the Thunderbolt to Sill traverse.

Linked with N Pal  Sucess!

Nice summit. I had an excellent view of the class 4 descent on Sill that Dirk and I had downclimbed in the dark earlier in the month. The climb from the U-notch was shorter than the Chimney variation to North Palisade, but it was definitely more difficult!

While descending the west side of the U-notch in the dark wasn't too fun, it was definitely better than returning at another date to climb Polemonium. Thanks for talking me into sneaking one more summit in that day, Dirk. : -)

Thunderbolt to Sill Traverse  Sucess!

We used our double ropes to rap from North Pal all the way down to the U-Notch on our way to Polemonium. Long and fun rappel.

Palisades Traverse  Sucess!

With Tom Becht and Glenn Gookin. Rapping into the U-Notch from North Palisade had its exciting moments (like our rope reaching one of our landing spots by just a couple of inches).
