Awesome day, great snow conditions.
Third time up this route. Great snow made for an excellent day with Sarah Simon.
Thanks to all the late season snow we've received, we enjoyed bomber snow conditions. Should have headed left toward Dutchman for a lower-angle finish, but...whatevs. Beautiful day!
Summited both peaks in great weather.
We did the same route as rleclair the next day. Thanks to those guys for kicking steps. We completed in about 10 hours starting at 3 AM. We got to the Boulder Field just before the storms hit, 60+ mph winds and snow squalls.
A very long day but what a trip! This was my "graduation climb" for the CMC Basic Mountaineering School. We departed camp at 4 AM to Chasm Lake. Lambslide was in reasonably good conditions, some postholing, a wetslide down the center - but solid towards the top. Topped out on the Loft to Clark's Arrow (actually found it this time), past the Palisades to the Homestretch. The Homestretch was all snow - sweet! Spent some time looking for the entrance to the old cables route and traversed the snow covered top to the 2nd bolt - from there rap down to the Boulderfield. 14 hours start to finish but loved it!
Sweet route in some burly conditions. Que bueno.
Great fun with Eric and Ben. Wintery conditions, but good fun route.
So I guess nobody has done this route? Conditions were great, although a few rocks went flying by on the ascent. Keep your head up!
