Grand Traverse  Sucess!

With Dave Johnson. Very fun, not as committing or as long as the Partner Traverse -- you can work around more spots if you want. Stayed ridge direct mostly, though.

Traverse  Sucess!

Got to the summit in 2:02, finished at Deluge in 4:14 total. The swiftest time I know of, so far.

The traverse featured great rock, fun moves, and unreal views.

Cannot recommend it enough.

Gores, Gores  Sucess!

Beautiful Gores, what a nice hike, it's a grind but well worth it! Amazing views from the top!

Grand Traverse  Sucess!

Second time up, Grand Traverse then traverse to Valhalla with Rachael. Grand Traverse is really fun, good solid rock and always seemed to be the perfect hold when you need it.
Third time up, Grand Traverse then traverse to PT 12485 with Rachael and Scot. Scot's final 3 peaks above 12k in the Gore.

From Keller  Sucess!

Starting the traverse after a slight detour. Not much to say about the north ridge. Trip report.

North Ridge  Sucess!

Wanted to do the traverse, but the weather and timing weren't right this day. There was some fun scrambling up the north ridge though if you stay on the ridge instead of the trail.

North Ridge  Sucess!

Hiked up a very wet Bighorn Creek trail, climbed the N. Ridge in the clouds, and made the summit early but the weather wasn't in it for us today. The Grand Traverse waits for another day

from Keller  Sucess!

Did N. Traverse after Keller, then did the traverse over to Grand Traverse. Topped the day out by hitting 12485, making for a LONG day. See TR.

Grand Traverse  Sucess!

"Discovered" a route that took us to the ridge. We hopped over North Traverse, retraced our steps, and spent the rest of the day on the difficult Grand Traverse. A really fun but exhausting day.

Grand Traverse  Sucess!

My first trip to the Gores and I think there are going to be many more to come!

Grand Traverse with skasgaard  Sucess!

Slept in our trucks at the TH the night before and listened to a fantastic thunderstorm. It was still drizzling in the morning and after debating whether we should even give the traverse a try to decided to go for it. Surprised to see snow on the peaks. Ice and snow made for a cold and slippery traverse, but we had a great time.

Via Grand Traverse  Sucess!

Started on North Traverse Peak with snow and some ice on the ridge! Made things a bit slower but definately enjoyable. SarahT and myself actually kept to most of the ridge crest. One of the Gardarmes proved to be more 'cruxy' than the actual crux. Fun ridge route though with great east-facing exposure!

We went straight up the side of this mother. Routefinding was difficult but very fun to avoid technical rock and other mess. This was en route to the Grand Traverse.

Route Climbed: N ridge/travers to Grand Traverse Peak Date Climbed: August 27  Sucess!

The traverse between the two peaks (North Traverse and Grand Traverse) looks fierce from below, but in reality its pretty easy except for one climb up a buttress. I forgot my boots, so did the entire traverse in tennis shoes.

Route Climbed: North Ridge Date Climbed: 7-2-04  Sucess!

Once again we got lucky with excellent weather late in the day. We summited N. Traverse at around 3:30 p.m. with minimal cloud-cover. Upper Bighorn Creek is gorgeous. Having been on both of the Grand Traverse's summits, N. Traverse has the much better approach and climb, but I thought Grand Traverse had a little better view. Both are well worth the effort. While up in Bighorn Creek take the time to explore this pristine area, you will not be dissapointed.
