super easy, fun line at 35-40 degrees. what a great way to spend a morning and you can't beat the access when the road is open to summit lake!
Climbed this from Summit Lake. Up to the bench, traverse over, then up the central part of the snowfield. Conditions ranged from very hard, to a little soft. Most of it was fine. First climb since back surgery. Great day out!
We stayed a little left out of the broadest snowfield, got a little mixed climbing in. Snow is not very well packed; warm temps and early sun mean do this sooner than later and do it early!
Simul-soloed with Dan, straight up the cliff band to the right of the snowfield. By picking around L & R you can keep the difficulty to 5.6 ish. topped out about 150' to the west of the true summit.
Climbed and skied this face in May, 09. A fun, steep line.
Got half way up but had to descend do to the lightning which then turned into snow so i started up the North Ridge again and got to the top in no time. Fun to solo too
This one looks steep, but it is really easy. Purely enjoyable in the early morning. The snow was nice and firm, and the lower half was covered by the shadow of the summit. A good starter piece.
