From Morgan Pass  Sucess!

9hrs r/t from Mosquito Pass. Loose shitty talus until you gain the ridge, then good 3rd class to summit. Nasty descent back to pass. Next time, try NW ridge!

Southwest Rib  Sucess!

Hmmm -- must have picked the wrong way. Some scary loose spots for the first 300' going up the rib (left of wide chute above Chickenfoot Lake). The rest, while loose, wasn't precarious. Not sure why people rave about this crappy rock when I compare it to the solid Sierra granite on Pipsqueak the day before. The traverse to Morgan was also ho-hum.

West Chute  Sucess!

Ended up going up the right-most chute on the west side. Got sucked in by what looked like a use trail from the talus above Chickenfoot Lake, but it was from drainage rather than humans.

Not a bad chute overall -- surprisingly un-loose, decent class-3. Once you hit the ridge there are 2-3 false summits in your way.

From Morgan Pass  Sucess!

Without getting into the 5th class slabs, I stayed far left after leaving trail and found much fun Class 3 and traversed the entire ridge. Beautiful views!

From Morgan Pass  Sucess!

Very underrated. I've done this a couple of times now, the last on the traverse to Morgan. I'd say this is solid class 3 to the summit, but no more. Even the traverse to Morgan, which Moynier rates class 4, seemed only class 3. Amazing views of the Little Lakes Valley peaks from the summit. When I first climbed this some dozen years ago, the register showed only about ten ascents over as many prior years.

S. Face  Sucess!

Enjoyable class 4 slabs from Morgan Pass. Ran out of time and bailed on the traverse to Morgan.

NW Ridge  Sucess!

Excellent climb, class 3 for the most part with a few easy class 4 sections. Better than a lot of the more popular peaks in the area. There was no summit register, just a carin.

Route Climbed: NW Ridge Date Climbed: May 27, 2005  Sucess!

A solid route that lives up to its billing in Secor. Did this as a day traverse of LLP and Mt. Morgan. The route is mostly class 3 with a few cl. 4 sections around the towers half way up. The views are outstanding the whole way.

Route Climbed: Class 2 scree slope on south side Date Climbed: 9-11-2005  Sucess!

Highly enjoyable climb, mainly due to the exciting traverse from Little Lakes Peak to Mount Morgan. Beautiful views of the entire Rock Creek Area.
