NE Ridge  Sucess!

The view of the North Arete will make you want to return and climb it.

ne ridge  Sucess!

Brilliant route, liked the boulder hoping to get tot he base of it. Should have simul climbed the harder parts though, as rope work slowed us down.

1980: NE Ridge solo  Sucess!

I soloed the NE Ridge after I failed to make the first ascent of the East Ridge

almost a year to date  Sucess!

With Jascha this time. More snow this year. Slightly hazy from the Clover fires, but still fun. Did the Gem Lakes ascent & Morgan Pass descent for variation.

NE Ridge  Sucess!

Fun climb on a cold day. IMHO is a difficult class 4 climb with some definite exposure, but very enjoyable. The summit block is hard to protect on, but is not difficult.

Long day  Sucess!

Climbed with a friend belaying some of the "pitches." We left the car around 6:00 and hiked in which was beautiful and offered great views of the mountain. The rock on the Northeast ridge was quite loose, with some exposure in spots and this fourth class route was much spookier than other more techniclly difficult climbs that I've done. Certain parts felt A LOT like fifth class climbing to me and I was glad we brought the rope. We stood (cowered) on the exposed and beautiful summitblock for a few minutes around 3:00 while two F-18's flew overhead (pretty cool), and then rappeled down the back side (Ulrich's) to the ridge. The views from the summit were amazing but I was starting to get sick from the altitude and the descent was slow and nauseating. We did the entire day in approach shoes which made the hike nice, but the snowfields "interesting." Like a zombie I made it back to the car around 1100 pm and began a frantic search for an open burger king. Beautiful climb in a great place.

Solo without words.  Sucess!

What an amazing route! That summit block is truly breathtaking. Sat on top and watched as the clouds began to gather and the sparrows cut the wind with their wings. Quickly signed the register and descended via ulrichs.

With Clydascope. Another fine day in the Sierra. Recommend the Treasure Lakes approach/descent over that described by Peter Croft.

Northeast Ridge  Sucess!

Fine route, turned out to be difficult and scary enough to keep focus. I have seen this route rated at everything from class 3 to 5.6, and I'm sure to some it is class 3, but it definitely deserves a sporty class 4 rating if you keep to the ridge crest.

4th class  Sucess!

I remember some very exposed, 4th class climbing without many positive holds near the top of the north arete. I also remember some tricky "bouldering" to gain the summit.

Northeast Ridge  Sucess!

Jim Mathews and I scrambled up the NE Ridge,descended via Cox Col and down to our tent at Dade Lake in little over 5 hours RT. Good climbing and good company very often go together and this was one of the times I just felt complete joy climbing with Jim. Good scramble with excellent partner.
