TRaverse  Sucess!

Did the Carillon-Russell-Whitney-Muir traverse in a long day with SuperDave. Whitney was great, but Mt. Russell was spectacular. The East Ridge is tons of fun and the down climb the south side provided us with a nice challenge. Watching climbers on the South face routes was fantastic.

East Ridge  Sucess!

Solo from Whitney Portal. Lots of people and bears at the portal, not a single creature on Russell.

Star Trekkin car to car  Sucess!

The crux is a finger crack and slab feet (.10b/c) but the best part is the 200' exposed 5.9 handcrack above. This route also does the crux of Mithril Dihedral at the top. Recommended. Car to car in 17 hours. S Face of Russell is Chilly already mid Sept...

East Ridge  Sucess!

Really a fun climb. Had to cross a short snow field near the top of the east summit. No crampons necessary but used the ice axe just in case.

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.

Formidable

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.
