Traverse from Thunder  Sucess!

Traversed from Thunder Pyramid via the east side ledges on a windy day. The descent down the gully from the saddle between the two was awful! I was throwing out tons of f-bombs. Don't do that gully without snow.

South Ridge  Sucess!

From UN 13,631 with Kiefer and John. Cliffed out a couple times, but otherwise fun scrambling on incredibly loose rock. Continued on to Thunder Pyramid and Pyramid.

South Ridge  Sucess!

Second summit of this complicated mountain. Traversed from 13,631 on a challenging but worthy ridge.
Very loose.
Continued on to Thunder Pyramid and finally Pyramid Peak.

Thunder and Lightning  Sucess!

Climbed as an out-and-back from Thunder Pyramid. The class 2 gully was snow filled, then traversed some ledges back to the saddle with a little class 3 mixed in to avoid some snow in places.

Thunder Pyramid to UN 13631 traverse  Sucess!

Climbed "Thunder Pyramid" via its standard route, traverse to "Lightning Pyramid" had a few 4th class moves, traverse to UN 13631 was considerably more difficult staying near the ridge crest. There were two extremely loose downclimbs involved and one very airy low 5th class move.

Traverse to Thunder  Sucess!

Climbed the Class 4 route to the Thunder/Lightning saddle. Fun scrambling to the saddle and an easy Class 2+ hike to the summit. Great views all around. Then Traversed over to Thunder.

thunder-lightning traverse  Sucess!

traversed from thunder. a rough, airy and tedious class four traverse, maybe even more difficult than the one of the bells. great adventure on an unforgettable day.

Traverse from Lightning  Sucess!

Climbed w/ Skasgaard, Shanahan, and Jamie N. Long, tedious traverse over mostly crap rock. Fortunately, for the really nasty moves, the rock was decently solid. Pyramid ridge is finally closed in my book!


Kiefer - Jun 24, 2007 10:09 am Date Climbed: Jun 23, 2007

North Ridge  Sucess!

Traversed over from Thunder Pyramid. A nightmare of a traverse but oddly, a good route as long as you stayed ON the ridge crest. This stuff is SOLID class-4 with frequent class-5 moves on loose, rottn rock. Lightning has a small summit but the views of the Bells are amazing!
