North Couloir  Sucess!

Climbed from Dade Lake. Traverse to Abbot was pretty straightforward, although there were a lot of annoying penitentes. Scrambling to the ridge was dirty and mostly cl. 2. The catwalk part is fun, then a short slog to the summit. Great views, decent route.

Day Hike to Petit Griffin

Excellent outing and great snow/weather conditions with[]Pellucid Wombat[/URL], []Wrathbum[/URL] and []Vitaliy Kalashnikov[/URL].
I froze atop the second belay station as the packs made getting through the crux a difficult and prolonged affair. Rapped from the station. My thanks to Shane and Mark for donating webbing and a rap ring to the cause.

NE Couloir  Sucess!

Up the standard route- very enjoyable. Snow was very solid crossing the couloir, but not ice yet.

NE Couloir  Sucess!

Camped near Mills Lake night before, always hate that crap right off the couloir to the ridge.

NE couloir  Sucess!

Dayhiked from Mosquito Flat TH. Couloir in good shape. Nice scrambling once I got onto the ridge, but the part coming up from the couloir was loose and sandy. The slog up to the top seemed to go on forever..

Beautiful day and great views of Dade, Mills, Bear Creek Spire's backside, and various other neighboring peaks.

Northeast Couloir solo  Sucess!

Finally on my 4th try. Rained out before. Summited by myself while Andy Zdon waited below. Almost stopped on the ridge but the route opened up as I kept going. Great view.

NE Couloir August 16 2003  Sucess!

Day hiked this peak fro Mosquito Flat TH with Thomas Johansson. This was a great climb but the loose moraine on the approach left little to be desired.

Scary Stuff  Sucess!

This was an exciting climb for me, but a little nerve-wracking. During the approach, I was looking up at the northeast couloir thinking 'that looks like an impossible vertical wall, but they said it's doable on sp, so i'll give it a try'. As it turns out, climbing the glacier was fairly easy, but the 500' from the top of the glacier to the ridge was pretty hairy (ice on the rocks, with snow on top of it). Crossing 'married man point' up on the ridge wasn't so bad, but I could see why some people wouldn't like it. When I got to the summit, visibility was about 100' with snow flurries and my gloves kept sticking to the metal summit register (as well as the rocks). The weather report said a storm was coming later that day, so I came down quickly, but the real snow didn't come until nightfall. Great peak though, probably the highlight of my week in the high country, even though I couldn't even enjoy the views.
