A slog but worth it  Sucess!

Got a little delayed by taking the wrong gullies up and down. Views were not amazing due to regional forest fires. Also got Matahpi this day. Climbed with J Hawes

GTTS  Sucess!

With Jared, Hannah, and Terezie. We all had plans broken on us, so we made a late start after lunch with the hopes of finishing before the road closed due to construction. We were not so lucky. Beautiful summit, on a hazy day, with some difficulty finding the proper return down the black cliff bands leading to the dry creek beds. Finished the hike by the moons glow.

Climbed on one of the haziest days of the summer. Avoided the diagonal and went straight up the face.

GTTS

Fun climb! I never thought I'd do this one - it always looked so intimidating - but so glad I did. That is some seriously loose scree above the cliffs. Poles recommended!

West Face  Sucess!

Tough Fun Day. Was planning on doing Matahpi too but rain moved in.

West Face  Sucess!

A great climb on a very hot day. The sun warmed up the snow so quickly that we could actually set off small wet slides with a kick to the top of the snowpack. We were happy to stick mostly to dry ground.

West Face  Sucess!

September 2007

Climbed with a group of four GPI employees on a perfect September day. That was a hot summer. Beautiful mountain, but our day was pretty sketchy. Very scary rockfall situation descending the diagonal chute. One of our party got way too far ahead of the group and was very nearly killed by falling rock. We ended up coming down very slowly, one by one, and had to finish down climbing in the dark. I learned a lot from this one.

Went up diagonal scree gully and came back the standard west face route. Also did Matahpi. Perfect clear sunny day. The views were amazing!

Going-to-the-Snow  Sucess!

Climbed up the diagonal chute with Natalee Rowe and Jeff Street in celebration of Chris Street and Howard Stone. Incredible Climb, much looser near the top than I was expecting. Saw a Golden Eagle gliding and diving and circling the summit. Started to snow at the top and snowed all the way down. One of the most rewarding and satisfying climbs I've done in the park. GRD.

GTTS  Sucess!

My last climb of the 2008 season with one friend. Went up the west face. Beautiful day, an adventure getting down. A great way to end the season.

normal route/diagonal scree gully  Sucess!

started on the normal route but missed the diagonal scree gully and ended up doing a mixed ice and snow gully in the middle of the west face.(note: general mountaineering axes not good for vertical ice.)

also soloed in Aug. 03'
