Fun solo  Sucess!

Climbed a very prominent arete to the right of the NE gully which splits up and right around the red rock band. Climbed a headwall that was 99% never climbed before- sketchiest moves I have done while soloing. Had a lot of fun in the end. Rock above wasn't bad at all and arete was amazing!

From Laurel/Bloody Saddle  Sucess!

Out on a fall camping trip with ST, FR, and MB. JQ and I ascended from the saddle. Great weekend. Featured the first snow of the year.

Wishing for more snow  Sucess!

We had hoped for more snow, but the start to the season was quite dry. Ended up bushwacking up to the NE ridge where decent rock was finally found. Overall a nice day and a nice view.

NE Slope  Sucess!

Climbed the NE slope from Convict lake and followed the ridge to the summit. Took about 6.5 hours for our group of 9 to reach the top.

Mendenhall Couloir Variation  Sucess!

Car to summit in 2:25, solo. Lower portion covered in snow, so climbed loose 3rd class on the right. At one point you had to go underneath a slab of snow! Fun, but weird climbing overall. Missed the left turn to the right gully in the red band and ended up going up a smooth grey slab to a point north of the summit. Descended the large bowl to the north of the summit, then down a steep trail through brush.

From Laurel/Bloody Saddle  Sucess!

Gnarly storm weekend. Got an early start and planned on the Laurel/Bloody double but storms built crazy fast and we were in thunder/lightning/rain by the time we made it down from the quick Laurel summit. No bloody today...

NE Gully  Sucess!

Having done it earlier in the summer as a rock climb, it seemed only fitting to climb it as a massive snow climb. Both were fun, definitely comparable in difficulty. I still think the descriptions of the "worst rock you will encounter" are very blown out of proportion; felt decently solid wherever I climbed up there.

From saddle  Sucess!

Went up from saddle between Laurel and bloody. Good conditioning hike. Not very interesting route.

NE Gully  Sucess!

Spiced it up a bit by climbing the ridge to the left near the top. Fun stuff.

Traverse From Bloody  Sucess!

Great view. Still a tremendous amount of snow on the surrounding peaks, but this route was mostly snow-free. Descended north side to the plateau then dropped down east to Convict Creek/ Lake.

long  Sucess!

very long climb, lots of bad rock if you get off route, and pretty much took the same route Forjan described due to snow down low

Re: NE Gully Up, Snowboard Down

Nice job boarding that. Have you done Bloody Couloir? Just curious how they compare. I did Bloody and found it intimidating looking down from the top, but really not so difficult.
