East Ridge  Sucess!

Fun scramble - took a few variations to avoid snow, and still had to crampon up for one short stretch.

East Ridge... Didn't Happen

Shut down by white out conditions and steady snowfall. Didn't make it past Russell/Carillon Col. Skied from saddle back down to Lower Boyscout Lake.

Attempted the exposed East Arete, complete with loose early season snow...made it to 13,800 before exhaustion and sketchiness got the best of us. Will return!

South Face, Right Side  Sucess!

Tricky finding class 3 route around the headwall.
Tried 2nd and 3rd chute to right of headwall, but
couldn't get through. Finally had success on diagonal
to left of headwall.

Traverse from Morgenson  Sucess!

Day 10 of the 2010 Sierra Challenge. The traverse from Morgenson is a tad scary! Trip Report.

East Ridge

Dayhike, turned back at 13.8k due to treacherous winter conditions. I guess we'll have to go back in the summer.

Great day-East ridge  Sucess!

Nice peak, nice ridge, nice views. The way down didn't seem as memorable as the way going up. Would like to try to fishhook

Fishhook Arete  Sucess!

Great day with MM. Only downside was a guide and 2 clients jumped ahead at the short cut at end of pitch 3 as I was seconding up pitch 1; we caught them by pitch 7; but let it go. Just sayin...

E RIDGE  Sucess!

Dayhiked E Ridge, via Nirth Fork route and bagged Carillon on the way down. Still a lot of snow for the end of June this year.

Fishhook   Sucess!

Great Climb! Very cold so opted to start directly under the notch. Sun hit arete at 8:15 and started climbing at 8:30. Comfortable temps and very little wind. Summitted at 1:45 and back at Upper Boy Scout Lake via East Ridge at 4:15. Snow on approach to Iceberg lake and from Iceberg lake to Whitney/Russell pass. Everything else clear of snow. Small patch on N side of E. Summit on descent.

Fishhook Arete  Sucess!

Camped at Iceberg Lake. Perfect weather but a little sketchy with ice/snow along last 300ft of summit ridge.

East Ridge  Sucess!

"Are we done yet? I'm tired of being scared." Can't wait to go back and grab the north ridge.
