Summer & Winter  Sucess!

8/27/06 - From camp in Navajo Basin. Traversed from El Diente and descended the standard route.

2/12/11 - Backpacked from Dunton into Kilpacker Basin. Climbed the southwest couloir with a variation near the top to avoid the standard 4th class finish. Lots of fresh snow in the couloir so we roped up and placed pro in the surrounding rock to try to protect against a possible avalanche. Awesome climb!

My friend & I witnessed a massive rock slide on this one, the down climb from the summit is pretty intense!

this peak  Sucess!

ended my month after I rolled my ankle badly at 13k. It was a long backpack out with a stupidly swollen ankle

traverse from El Diente   Sucess!

Amazing summit ridge! The best part! This summit has been the most inspirational of all the mountains I have climbed by far, minus Lone Eagle Peak.

from El Diente  Sucess!

The snow didn't hurt the traverse, and immensely helped the descent -- plunge steps FTW. I didn't get sidetracked much, and it still took me about 1h30. 1 hour would really be cruising.

1st Great Traverse  Sucess!

Did the traverse from El Diente in perfect weather. Hard work, but very rewarding.

Route-finding Issues  Sucess!

After a foggy traverse, ended up climbing Mount Wilson from behind up loose class 4 ledges. Descended correct summit blocks, then went too far west and down north face. Paid for route-finding error with a slide and some cuts, but fortunately that's it. Eventually got back on track before thunderstorms hit.

From Navajo Lake  Sucess!

Backpacked into Navajo Lake and then climbed Mount Wilson and Wilson Peak the next day. Socked in for about an hour until the clouds lifted and the weather held steady. A great mountain.

The long way  Sucess!

We were going to do the traverse from El Diente, got to El Diente, traversed to the Organ Pipe's, Snow was rotting out and post holing to rock, glissaded down, to Basin saw an up track going half way up, broke the rest and truely climbed them both on the same day! Rotting out snow on final pitch very nasty. 10 hours total from the lake.
