North Couloir  Sucess!

Really fun climb up the north couloir. We could have gotten by without a rope for the 4th class section, but it was good to have it. The views from the summit are as good as advertised.

winter day trip

Attempted north couloir day trip. Turned back above glacier notch when it started getting dark. Great views but very slow going over boulders and soft snow.

Great trip with the brigands. North chute then traversed to Polemonium and rappelled down the u-notch.

North Coulior

Good climb but turned back at the top of the Glacier Notch due to thunderstorms with blowing snow. Stay off the moraine, go left around it, horrible rock pile!

North Couloir  Sucess!

Day trip with Kurt Wedberg from SMI. Long outing with some of everything. Snow was in great shape, sun cups not too big and made for perfect steps. Rock was nice with some cool exposure. No wind, warm temps, no one on the route, and a awesome guide. Great day!

SW Chute   Sucess!

With Rob from Knapsack pass camp over to Potluck Pass. We both took chute #1(far left chute) - Rob stayed on the left of the snow and I was to the right. Traversed to Polemonium afterwards and down Polemonium glacier on the way back to camp.

N Couloir  Sucess!

Soft snow in the afternoon, got to witness a huge rockfall off of Galey. Big boulders gouged deep ruts in the glacier. Was not too excited to cross the fall zone on my way back to camp.

Some days  Sucess!

Combined Moon Goddess Arete, Temple summit, Mt. Gaylee and Swiss arete on Sill. Huge day. My favorite day climbing ever. My partner lost it on the L shaped snowfield and self arrested with her nut tool! 26 hours from 3rd lake to 3rd lake. Some days cannot be improved upon.

Swiss Arete-day hike  Sucess!

Fun route, got to the summit at sundown, but were rewarded by a unique view of whispy clouds swirling around the other palisades. Then we had to hike back to the day push

Swiss Arete  Sucess!

Awesome day climbing with a great partner in a beautiful setting. I got to lead the whole route. The climbing was comfortable, almost a cruise, really, the entire way, though I thought a few of the sections after the step around were more difficult than expected. Lots of rope drag- I've got to use runners more effectively! Very fun day.
