Route Climbed: East Arete Date Climbed: 1994  Sucess!

Soloed the East Arete after not climbing for almost 10 years. It was a beautiful summit and just what I needed to get me to quit smoking and start technical mountaineering again. I haven't stopped yet. Thanks, Winchell!

Route Climbed: East Arete Date Climbed: June, 1971  Sucess!

This was my first Sierra summit requiring more than Class 2 difficulty. I remember having a great time. The climb was straightforward, with enough exposure to make it exciting. The view of the Palisades was fantastic. And, the summit of Winchell is superb! It is a very exposed summit, with room for only two people, and the view straight down the steep West Face is awesome. A great climb!!!!
