Consolation Prize

Hoped for the SE Face, but snow melt into the crack forced us onto the South Slope. Still an interesting climb with some Class 3+ moves on the crest to spice things up a bit. The snow was a whole lot better than the day before on Goode.

SE face  Sucess!

Got a late start with Cliff. Short approach, really fun climbing, excellent knife edge traverse near the summit. Blew out my back and gashed my leg on the descent.

Great route-sustained 3rd/4th class, solid rock. Impressive, fun knife edge traverse.

SE Face  Sucess!

Great climb! Up and down in fiveish hours solo with great rock the whole way up! Summit had an outstanding view. Descent down the SE/E chutes, but I think the SW stuff down to Loch Leven would be easier.

SE face  Sucess!

A nice solo half-day from North Lake. The chimney isn't too bad, and the rest of the route is mostly nice class 3 cruising. Awesome short knife-edge on the ridge.

SE Face  Sucess!

It's always a classic if it's better than you expect! Great day, bigger than I thought. A routefinding error made it a bit longer, and that last ridge was more than I expected, but fun when it was done. Great day, great scrambing parter who remained game throughout the day.

SE Face  Sucess!

Nice climb. Another 5.4 lead for me with my new light alpine rope. Would have been more fun if my partner wasn't sick. Still hate the south slope descent--endless scree and sand on granite yuck.

great climb  Sucess!

up piute pass, across humphreys basin, and up the ridge - I scrambled up the left side of the ridge, but cody could not make it - the ridge was great, then a bit of a slog up top, followed by a challenging summit problem - unfortunately, I had to return to the west ridge to pick up cody, but some of the more direct chutes looked like good decent routes - overall, a real nice climb

SE Face w/ Deb  Sucess!

As usual, had a great day in the Sierra under beautiful skies with a beautiful partner! As for the route.....waaay overated. Classic? Perhaps the ridge and a small section in the beginning but the junk in the middle reminded me of Laurel....loose and chossy. People are missing out on an overlooked classic in Darwin Canyon: the NE Ridge of Mendel...."spicy Norman Clyde 4th class", sustained in nature and much cleaner rock...all the way to the summit. Check in the box.

SE Face  Sucess!

Did the SE Face with perfect weather eventhough we followed a stinky mule pack the entire trail. Think I smelled shit the whole climb as well. ? Fun ridge, old approach shoes, and bullshit descent. Great views of Desolation area.
