Woods lake + El Diente  Sucess!

Exhilerating finish to the traverse. Rock of Ages TH was closed at this time, but may be open now. Had a long day from Woods.

Well Cairned  Sucess!

Easy after just completing the North Ridge on Kit Carson. Bagged on the traverse to El Diente due to weather.

Dayhike from Navajo TH  Sucess!

We noticed that Roach added the Rock of Ages trailhead/approach in the 3rd edition. Tried to get there - the road was gated. Given deteriorating forecasts and our schedules, we decided our best option was to dayhike from the Navajo Basin TH. Started at 2:15am. I felt great and was moving fast, but ran into route-finding issues and summitted at 11am. We were hurried off the summit by gathering weather. Got into rain and hail on the way down. Feel fortunate to have squeezed it into a narrow window.

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!

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.
