Great Climb  Sucess!

Really enjoyed this climb, the approach was a bear, especially in the moraine section, but the climb itself (NE Face) is absolutely spectacular. Thanks Jared and John for the great route finding, I'm glad I didn't cash in the chips at 13k. Little long for a day hike, back in LA at 4am...

NE Face  Sucess!

Started up the 3rd class ledge, but turned uphill too quickly and missed Secor's chute. Not too big of a problem, but the top steepens to 4th class for about 20 feet before joining the main chute.

Northeast Face  Sucess!

Went car-to-car from Glacier Lodge in 10.5 hrs, 5.5 to the summit. Finger Lake is gorgeous, and the summit is cool, but the rest of the route was unpleasant.

NE Face  Sucess!

Day hike. Finally made it 22 days later then expected and with the help from Chris from SMC. It was worth the wait as the route was pushing my skills and more people on the route would not have made me happy.

Secor Chute  Sucess!

The moat made entrance to the ledge described by Secor a little spicier than normal (a few class 4 moves). Really enjoyed this route, but would not want to be in any of the chutes during a busy summer weekend!

Sometimes fun, sometimes tedious. Outstanding summit view.

my first fourteener!  Sucess!

ditto, went up with squishy. did a lot of the (piss-poor) routefinding on the mountain with a broken finger; so our route meandered a little from established routes. regardless it was a great experience for sure!

Middle Pal on 2nd try  Sucess!

Did MP two years ago with LVMC. Great route and pretty straightforward. Got lighteninged off the first attempt solo, but came back with friends and found victory.

Good birthday, 11th 14er  Sucess!

Mosquito nightmare (I can't think of a better word to describe it). Above about 12,000 feet however, it was a great climb the most sustained solid class 3 I've done. Only 3 California 14ers left.

Fun one  Sucess!

Did the east face. It was a beautiful approach passing lots of cool lakes. The glacier was a pain to traverse. We attempted a 5.5 trad route but had to bail b/c of snow. Then went for the normal route which was also hard b/c of snow.
