Followed the Chockstone route
Made it to the summit of all 5 spires this summer. Good times! This route has a historic feel with all of the old pitons and bolts. Easy way to the top, but I probably wouldn't climb it again. Better off on the NW corner or W face.
Climbed w/ Ryan Hoover. Should have brought snowshoes for the approach.
Climbed with Dirk. Exciting climb and great views!
Climbed the NW Corner as part of a 5 summit link up. Crux pitch was a little wet as there is a little pocket of snow still melting out. Doable if you're ok with a runout, wet, 5.7 slab/face section at the top.
A couple of time. Last time with Nick and a guy we met. We made him lead all the pitches since we had already done it. Great climb.
A varied climb in a great place.
Climbed Haydar and M Denyer, Haydar lead the crux pitches. Chilly Day!
Climbed this wonderful route with Nurse Ratchet on our honeymoon road trip. Possible to walk a #4 camalot in the OW, which is pleasant and awkward. Working on a topo for this page, which will show the undercling pitch as the crux.
Close encounters of the Goat kind on the descent.
Classic Route, one of the best on the road trip!
OMG - what a loose mess. Most holds were quite portable. The last move over the top seemed alot tougher than the 5.7 traverse to the top of the chockstone. Off route? Probably LOL.
Bruce and I climbed this dissapointing route on Saturday. Bruce lead pitch #1, which is a crappy chimney into the trees. Bruce lead the first half of pitch #2 to a ledge, then I lead the second half. Fun pitch. I lead the 5.9 offwidth corner which was really awkward and annoying. The 4th pitch was decent with a short cruxy section. After that it is a scramble (mostly) to the summit.
Decent route but not classic by any means.
Another fine alpine route on excellent cascade granite. Glad I didn't have to lead the hard pitch.
1st time with M Woodmansee, E Sandbo and other SAC members. Full on conditions, visibilty quite limited. Climbed SEWS and rappeled down N face into notch between SEWS and NEWS. Climbed up S face on snow and ice covered rock. Rappels were interesting especially the one off the chockstone.
Climbed with Paul Bishop. We forgot about the snow in the SW Couloir and had quite a time kicking steps in the hard snow wearing rock shoes.
