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.

N. Coulior  Sucess!

Fun climb. It hailed the day before, so the N. face was white and frozen. Also climbed Apex and Gayley as part of a long day hike.

Swiss Arete revisited  Sucess!

Climbed Swiss Arete for the second time. First time was twenty years ago with John Fischer. Great fun climb. Very sad how much the Palisade glacier has retreated over the last two decades.

Summited as part of Palisades traverse  Sucess!

Hit MS as part of the Palisades traverse last summer. Great exposure and difficult route-finding, but Bruce kept us on course.

Arete  Sucess!

finer than fine climb. Simuled or soloed much of it. Beautiful and clean. Now, if only the approach could be a tad bit shorter. Must keep in mind that you are climbing all the while.

If you don't succeed at first...

This was my second winter solo attempt. I love the journey, though can't quite make the summit. I'll keep trying!
