North Arete  Sucess!

Did the 5.9 variation at the bottom; the rest of the usual route was better quality rock, though, so is best to skip this variation and get up high quicker - leaves more time for skiing back down.

Re: Ski Dreams

Hey Brian,

Sorry I missed you a couple weeks back. I went up there Sunday (9th), I went up and down the East Couloir. Glad I wasn't really there for the skiing, it wasn't so good.

North Arete  Sucess!

Climbed with Kovarpa. Whatever we did, it certainly wasn't the 5.4 / 5.5 route the guidebooks describe. I took my 1st fall (nothing big really) at the beginning of P1 and that took the wind out of my sail. After that Pavel all the way to the summit. Nice climb, but I guess I wasn't in the right state of mind for it.

Had to settle  Sucess!

for a summit of the Matterhorn Peak as one of my partners showed up way out-of-shape for a five day trip to the Palisades. Wish the East Couloir would have been in shape, but the SE ridge ascent-SE face descent treated me just fine. Great approach that has a little bit of everything.

Third peak of the day; all part of the 2007 Sierra Challenge. Rick Kent and I came from Twin Lakes to The Doodad (via the Polemonium Col), over to The Dragtooth and ascended via the NW Face (3rd/4th class) of the Matterhorn. Descended the SE slope to Horse Creek for the return leg back to Twin Lakes. Beautiful day!

via Horse Creek Pass  Sucess!

Ascended with Mike H. as a day trip and scout out for a potential visit to the North Arete. Guide books are right, we'll do that as a two-dayer if we pull the trigger on it! Great weather, superb views down to Lyell and up to Sonora Pass area.

Something on North Arete  Sucess!

We (+Kris) climbed something on North Arete and I really enjoyed it but it was harder than 5.5/5.6, more like 5.7/5.8. Great time!

East Couloir  Sucess!

Headed up the mostly snow-free and very loose east couloir from Twin Lakes. The climbing was good and so was the day. I didn't want to get off the summit everything was so beautiful and perfect, but eventually I descended via horse creek pass.

East Couloir  Sucess!
