Route Climbed: Traverse from El Diente Date Climbed: July 17, 2003  Sucess!

After an awsome climb up El Diente's west ridge we had an awsome traverse to Mount Wilson. The traverse was alot of fun with some great clmbing along the way. The final approach to the summit involved some great class 4 climbing and my climbing partner and I actually went separate ways climbing different lines to the summit. We were able to glissade almost the entire way down to upper Navajo Basin. Snow was perfect for standing glissade.

Summited on traverse from El Diente. Upclimbed the rappel section on the traverse ... a rope was not necessary but could be nice.

Wow...there was quite a bit of snow near the top of this mountain...so the final moves were rather difficult. The mountain looks pretty daunting from the 13,000 foot saddle near Wilson Peak...but it is not as bad as it looks...just watch out for snow on top...as that was pretty risky for me...

Route Climbed: West Ridge from Navajo Lake Date Climbed: 7-29-00  Sucess!

Finally, third time is charmed! Since I'm long on endurance but short on speed at high altitude, this time my husband and hiking buddy, Jay, and I did it in two days as a backpack to Navajo Lake. The two previous attempts had been from Silver Pick Basin, and what always stopped me was having to lose and reclimb 700' from the 13,020' saddle. It was still a long and strenuous climb, but at least the weather was on my side.
