Fun scramble with the interesting part at the top. Great solo day for me.

East ridge  Sucess!

The guidebook says this is a logical choice when ambition, good weather or time is scarce. How about when all three are scarce? Climbed this in October 2004. We got a late start cause I was tired and hung over from celebrating my thesis defence the night before. The weather was menacing and indeed it started snowing at the crux step immediately before the summit. By the time we got back down to the col it had turn to a heavy, steady rain that just soaked us through. Still had a blast and that day provided some great memories.

East Ridge Scramble  Sucess!

Great scramble. Ran into a moose on the trail, saw three gorgeous mountain goats at the pass. The scree/dirt up to the best is nasty at best, but once you hit the ridge is a redeeming grace. Went up with a first-timer who loved it. Yay Rockies!

East Ridge  Sucess!

Short and sweet, classic Rockies scrambling in a compact trip. Burstall is worth repeating every once and awhile. The glacier view is astounding!

Route Climbed: East Ridge Date Climbed: September, 2004  Sucess!

This was a solo trip. I gained the summit in under 2 hours from the parking lot, but of course that is moving pretty damn fast. I recommend this one, a short trip for the glacier views and firm ground. Cheers!
