Change in routes at last minute  Sucess!

Planned on doing this via the north face couloirs, but hiking partner was not feeling it and had to turn back. Ended up doing the normal route solo. Planned on hitting Iowa too, but the clouds were building fast so had to settle for just 1 on this day.

Whatever worked  Sucess!

Double-header with Huron, though both by standard routes. Still too much posthole-inducing slush on the trail, so I took the fat rib to its left. Maybe class 3 w/ some steep-ish snow. Trip report

Summer & Winter  Sucess!

8/15/04 - Standard route up from Missouri Gulch in my cottoneering days.

1/30/10 - Winter ascent via the West Ridge. Road closure was 3 miles from Vicksburg making it an 8.5 mile approach to base camp below Clohesy Lake. The 3 miles from Rockdale to camp were untracked and required very difficult trailbreaking... all done by me in the span of 5-6 hours! Summit day was long and tiring, the west ridge seems endless. The final bit of ridge to the summit was very exciting (stayed on ridge crest)! Continued on to Iowa and Emerald before making an epic return to camp, again breaking through deep powder.

West ridge winter ascent  Sucess!

Missouri in winter was a whole lot tougher than I anticipated. We climbed the west ridge from our camp below the summer Cloyses Lake trailhead. The west ridge is LONG and we had to stay above the summer crux on the n.w. ridge along the exposed ridge crest. It's a whole different ballgame up there in winter, but the weather was awesome! Continued over to Iowa and Emerald, then suffered through some epic postholing back to camp. Thank God for strong partners!

A Few Things  Sucess!

Climbed N face snowfields to point 13 something and on to MO, down part of the E.Ridge and then all the way down the "C" Couloir. . .I think.

North Couloir Ski  Sucess!

Ascend and then ski descent of the main north couloir (the one that tops out right below summit). Climed with shanahan96.

two snow season adventures  Sucess!

May 9, 2009- climbed missouri's north face with mike. the snow behaved nicely for us, making kicksteps somewhat painless, before topping out just feet from the summit. a fantastic, early couloir season line!

Jan 29-31, 2010- spent three days(21.5 miles/5,270') plugging through an unforgettable adventure on missouri, #33/100 winter. friday's 8.5 mile slog to camp was nightmarish and my body was shot for summit day saturday. that effort cost me a shot at emerald. sunday's hike out wasn't bad and overall it was a productive trip.

June 18, 2016- a return trip up missouri's north face, this time with michelle and steve. really enjoyed being back out there and kicked the way up the couloir!
