from Treasure Col  Sucess!

Treasure Col is a loose chute and I do not like it. Boulder field is no fun.

Great skiing  Sucess!

A perfect ski outing on the NE slope. One continuous descent from the summit to South Lake. Perfect conditions all the way.

With Johnson   Sucess!

Don't think I've ever talked so much (with my dayhiking partners) than on this dayhike, one of the side effects of being a self-proclaimed and real life hermit.

Southeast Slope  Sucess!

Nice outing with perfect conditions over Treasure Col and found the basin on the other side east of Mount Johnson to be well work the slightly circuitous route. Only took about half a day but really enjoyable.

North Couloir solo  Sucess!

Front-pointing in trail runners sucks. I would have been happier in boots and with two tools, but it wasn't that sketchy, and sure beats the slog from Treasure Col. Trip report

North Couloir (what else?)  Sucess!

Simul-climbed this with Robert Hanson in July in the early-mid '90s. Hard neve to actually some blue ice up high. Let a bottle of gin cooling in Treasure Lakes for martinis back at camp.

first alpine lead fall...  Sucess!

climb it late winter, first day of fishing season at South Lake. in search of ice but didn't find much. lead the 5.6 section and took my first lead fall. bled a little but nothing exciting.

Southeast slope  Sucess!

Instead of climbing Treasure Col I climbed Peak 12,600 which is to the right of the Col, Class 3, there was a register there left by an SPS party in 1981, then I did the slog up to Gilbert, then to peak 12,800 South of Gilbert, then the N. Ridge of Johnson, very fun day.

Route Climbed: North Couloir Date Climbed: September 24th, 2005  Sucess!

Fun climb, although the ice wasn't 'in' yet - just a smattering if ice beneath very cruddy and irregular neve. Harrington Couloir on Mt Thompson was in much better condition. The climb at the top was fun - the 5.6 variation was fun, although very short.

Climbed the North Couloir with Dennis Richards up beautiful neve and then up the 4th class (never encountered any ~5.6) to the summit.

Route Climbed: North Couloir Date Climbed: October 7, 2005  Sucess!

Climbed with Peter Doucette. Hard neve and alpine ice filled the couloir. Clear, cool Fall weather. Spicey low class 5 descent of the east ridge to a notch finished off by 1 rappel down to the north face morraine field.

Route Climbed: North Couloir Date Climbed: September 24, 2005  Sucess!

Simulsolo with Joe LeMay, who turned up serendipitously at the base of the snowfield when Mark Thomas, Mike Ybarra and I arrived. Good neve conditions mostly, with a few annoying patches of hard, brittle ice and some fresh snow. Good climbing, great summit.
