North Ridge  Sucess!

Very loose ridge. We definitely found the tetering, grand piano-sized rock that Roach describes. Real class 3 climbing. Super-dry that year. This is the year that the San Juans had a 6% of normal snowpack in the spring. Climbed in tennis shoes in late June!

Route Climbed: north ridge Date Climbed: summer 2000?  Sucess!

Was camped in the area and thought this one looked tougher and more interesting than Wilson Peak, so off we went. Fun scramble with decent exposure and a couple of funky moves, and a great little summit!

Route Climbed: Complete North Ridge Date Climbed: Sept. 16, 2003  Sucess!

Since I inherited the page, I thought I'd best get up there again and check it out. Decided to climb the entire North Ridge to get some pics and beta for the page. I underestimated the amount of snow that collected on the east side of the ridge during the heavy storms of the last couple of weeks. It made for a tougher climb, as traversing left (east) of difficult points on the ridge was problematic. The inability to pass the difficult spots made the climb actually alot like the Wilson-El Diente traverse in terms of difficulty.

Luckily, I had good weather, and got up and down (car to car at the gate closure) in 7 hours. If I remember correctly, it can be done in 5 hrs. car to car when dry.
