Thunderbolt to Sill Traverse  Sucess!

Day hiked the Thuderbolt to Sill Traverse in just over 20 hours. Started at South Lake and ended at the shuttle car at Glacier Lodge. Climbed with SPer's Forjan,Kevin Trieu,Dave S,Luis Gijon and Corey Harelson. This was the hardest part of the whole traverse for me, but I knew it was all worth it once I hit the top.

Spring Break in the Palisades

Poor routefinding lead us to an impasse ~50 ft. from the summit. Approached VIA SF Big Pine Creek. Bulletproof ice on the L-Shaped couloir.

Swiss Arete  Sucess!

Jon Meek and I climbed Mt Sill's Swiss Arete. What an awesome route. It's easy to see why this one is an alpine classic. A lot of exposure, high altitude, awesome rock and some of the best views I've seen from any High Sierra peak. Combine all that with perfect weather and a great climbing partner, it was an awesome weekend!

via Swiss Arete  Sucess!

Great trip, We left from camp at Mt Gayley, crossed the intense scree fields, summited, then back to camp, packed up and made it back to the car in one very long day.

Swiss Arete  Sucess!

Beautiful morning, but it clouded up by 11a. Light snow, hail, and some rain, we were rapping in the rain and got a rope stuck, started to sound like an epic, but then it all came together.

From Polemonium  Sucess!

End of the traverse, 10 hours from South Lake. That knife-edge was awesome.

Swiss Arete  Sucess!

Climbed this with SPer - Jeff B. We planned to do the traverse, but 70 mph gusts, mild hypothermia on my part, and lingering fatigue from getting our heavy packs to Sam Mack Meadow meant Sill was our only summit. Not a bad one at all though as the climbing was spectacular and the descent was pretty epic.

N. Couloir  Sucess!

Awesome route. Would be much more enjoyable with nice snow cover up to Apex. 9th CA 14er.

North Coulior  Sucess!

Climbed the North Coulior. The L-shaped snowfield is currently easy to bypass on the right (crampons not required). Great views from the top. Climbed Apex Peak on the way down.

SW Slope

The approach was not that bad, but my partner start experiencing a sever altitude sickness and we have to abort the ascent part.

Thunderbolt to Sill Traverse  Sucess!

Long day with Tom and Augie as he says below. Final peak on the traverse, glad it didn't take long to get to after Polemonium!

Traverse  Sucess!

Long day doing the Palisades Traverse with Glenn and Augie. Still one of my favorite peaks. The beginning of a long night when Augie's three nights without sleep caught up to him.
