Summitted via the West Ridge for spectacular views of a foggy valley in the morning. Awesome times.
nice climb annd love the neil colgan hut!
Fun ice/snow climb, great scrambling on the ridge, descent by the south side; long day from the highway when you are out of shape. Great day with M. Siddles.
It was a really good climb!! really warm that day and few objective hazards mostly on the left side of the face under the overhanging ice. Really fun the two last pitches of the climb and getting out from the cornice. Hail storm on top and a great day
Was a very easy snow climb but still a fun day. We climbed a nunatak sticking out of the glacier on the way back to the Neil Colgan hut which went at about 5.5 - 40m with plastic boots hehe... First ascent ? :)
The crux was definitely the Perren route to get to the Hut.
A steep asthetic climb up the North Face. The ice was good, but the bulge has shrunk from its former glory. A few tricky moves surmounting the cornice. A fun climb with good pro and little objective danger.
Bailed halfway up after a late start and suffering through dinner plating ice and some close calls with rockfall. We had 3 climbers and were pitching our way up. A pair of climbers staggered into the Colgan the previous morining at 1:30 a.m. after battling this beast for nearly 12 hours. We decided we didn't want to go for 15. If anyone finds some gear on this route, let me know.
