It was a long day, but Gimpilator and I were successful summiting both Mount Ellinor and Mount Washington... and we descended Mount Ellinor prior to Mount Washington rather than attempting the gnarly rockclimb traverse.
SIDE-NOTE: It is dumb that the original SP page was deleted without notice. Photos and TRs were lost. I will try to find mine.
Redwic and I started with Ellinor, contemplating the traverse. When we saw that it didn't look good, we descended to the road and climbing Washington from the standard route. With hardly any research or route information, it's a wonder that we found our way up Washington. 5700+ feet of total gain. What a day!
Climbed with Radek, Shirley and Blondie some time in 2003. Why does this page keep getting deleted? This is the third time I've signed the summit log for this peak.
I have no idea why it was deleted. I think the original owner may have left SP...?
If I remember correctly, this page was owned by Shredzer. There seems to be no trace of him now. It's a real jerk move to delete your pages rather than give them up for adoption.
Climbed Washington at least 4 times with varying levels of success. I am still exploring the various diverse faces of the peak that see less traffic than the standard routes.
With a bunch of friends from work so good or bad weather, we were going up. Turned out to be bad so no views. Just found some slides of my climb...looks like we had goats with us on the summit.
