Route Climbed: North Couloir Date Climbed: September 25, 2004  Sucess!

What a fun climb! Vendula was super brave to do this as her first ice climb... I just wish there were no other people in the couloir - we got hit pretty hard by the dislodged ice from above that picked up a lot of speed. Kris was bleeding...

Route Climbed: North Face, Right Couloir Date Climbed: Sept 20, 2003  Sucess!

Full ice. Bergschrund very passable on left. 3 pitches and 30 feet of change with 60m rope. Used rock and ice pro. Went with partner, but would also be a nice solo.

Route Climbed: Uh.....Up! From the South side Date Climbed: August 09, 2003  Sucess!

My first true peak. Hiked up from Saddlebag lake on the south side, up some loose scree and bushes. Ended up on top of the north coulouir and continued easy 5.0 climbing to the top! Went down the south ridge, then up the north ridge of Conness. Great day!

Route Climbed: Right NE Couloir Date Climbed: 25-SEP-1999  Sucess!

Late start, great climb up the couloir. My first serious snow/ice climb, and first guided climb. Passed by a solo climber while in the couloir. Found the couloir itself to be ho-hum snow climbing, but really liked the rock scramble from the notch to the summit.

Route Climbed: The left Ice Couloir Date Climbed: September 5, 2000  Sucess!

Over Labor Day 2000, Michael Gordon and I soloed the left North Peak Couloir in 6.5 hours RT from the Saddlebag Lake. We found good ice in the couloir and thin cover of snow above the notch. We summited North Peak and ran down to our car. On the summit, we marveled at the possibility of climbing North Peak Couloir, going to the top of North Peak, then crossing over to Mt.Conness and climbing the Nort Ridge from the saddle between it and North Peak then descend to Saddlebag Lake. What a trip that would be. One of these days..
