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.

Swiss Arete  Sucess!

Awesome climb with a long, beautiful approach. Mary and I were lucky and got a permit for 3 nights. We spent the first night at the great sites between 1st and 2nd lake and then moved up to the moraine camp under Mt Gayley. We climbed the route on day 3 and then spent another night at the moraine camp before hiking out. The climbing on the route was, solid rock, fun moves...and we got some extra climbing in by starting at the very base of the arete. A good 4 days in the backcountry.

via Southwest Chutes Variation  Sucess!

We tried to follow the Southwest Chutes route, but ended up creating our own variation. Check the "Southwest Chutes Variation" Route for more details! It was a difficult climb, but a ton of fun! The view was incredible and definitely worth it! Blue skies all day!

North Couloir  Sucess!

Perfect conditions on the North Couloir route. A little bit of ice on the traverse, but easily avoided. A fantastic climb!

Swiss Arete  Sucess!

Climbed with Justin (swapped leads) -- fantastic day, gorgeous scenery, exposure and fun climbing.

Descended the N. couloir, which was pretty dry so no need to rappel.

Spent the night at Gayley Camp (~12200') the night before.

Sill with the kid  Sucess!

Went up the SW chutes with my 16 year old kid towards the end of a 2 week backpack in the Sierra. Had a great time. Was really wanting to get over to the other Palisades. My kingdom for a rope!
