Great Traverse from Williwaw to Ramp  Sucess!

Over the ballfield, Williwaw Lakes, up S Ridge to summit then down and across the ridge up to Ramp. Best traverse yet. Exposed 3rd-4th class climbing on the ridge between Ramp and Williwaw if you stick to the ridge but we didn't feel the need for a rope.

New Route  Sucess!

Inability to follow directions led me to pioneer a new route up the flank of the NW ridge. Made it to the summit after a few hours of difficult scrambling (probably class 4-5). Quite the adventure!

SW gully   Sucess!

I climbed the SW gully, which was filled with snow, to the S ridge and onto the summit twice. The second time, in '03, the gully had a thin seam of snow leading up it. Unfortunately I went left onto some very nasty rock (class 3). My friend stayed in the seam and enjoyed a little chimney climbing to get to easier ground above.

I really would like to attempt that W Ridge route: it seems amazing.
