"So I was sitting in my cubicle today, and I realized, ever since I started working, every single day of my life has been worse than the day before it. So that means that every single day that you see me, that's on the worst day of my life."

Very fun albeit short route. Worth a return sans rope and to continue further!

Second time on Sill
Blackmouth - Aug 10, 2009 8:39 pm Date Climbed: Aug 8, 2009Thunderbolt to Sill Traverse
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.

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.

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!

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.

After a failed attempt in june, under estimating the approach. From Thunderbolt Pass/Potluck Pass. Camped above tarn at Potluck. Favorite views

Climbed with Mike Brooks in 12 hours from the Glacier Lodge trailhead up the North Fork of Big Pine Creek to Sam Mack Meadow and up the Glacier Notch.

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.

End of the traverse, 10 hours from South Lake. That knife-edge was awesome.
emilie - Sep 3, 2008 2:20 pm Date Climbed: Aug 31, 2008Swiss Arete
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.

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

big slog from the west
ckerth - Aug 11, 2008 12:31 am Date Climbed: Aug 9, 2008North Coulior
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.
Zhenya77 - Aug 6, 2008 3:55 pm Date Climbed: Sep 5, 2004SW Slope
The approach was not that bad, but my partner start experiencing a sever altitude sickness and we have to abort the ascent part.

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!
bechtt - Aug 3, 2008 10:14 pm Date Climbed: Aug 2, 2008Traverse
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.
Climber Dave - Jul 24, 2008 8:59 pm Date Climbed: Jul 20, 2008North Coulior
Climbed up the N coulior which is dissappearing, kinda loose rock to the notch to Apex, Still a fun climb with great views of the Palisades
