Good Stuff!  Sucess!

The guys and I scrambled up this thing quickly enough after our bullshit approach. Don't recall a tough move anywhere.

B-Day Climb!  Sucess!

Simul'd mostly on a light half rope. Looking down on the Valley from summit was surreal.

2nd solo  Sucess!

With K.

Passed one roped party and had the rest of the "playground" and summit to ourselves.

FUN as always!!!!!

Took the direct exit instead of the class 4 traverse this time. Amazingly easy.

Fun route!  Sucess!

Many variations to the route makes it adventurous. Overall, a pretty easy and quick climb!

Fun Climb

Great first simul-climb. Easy and fun. First third seemed like all 3rd and 4th class.

Very enjoyable  Sucess!

Started simuling about halfway up. Though we looked, we never found either the left 4th class exit nor the 5.7 hand-crack. We just kept climbing after going right around the roof, basically going straight up, till we saw an obvious right-trending finish just below the actual summit. Trying to follow the 14 pitch supertopo beta on this would be truly absurd. Just climb it!

Fun  Sucess!

Did in four big simul pitches. Lots of fun easy climbing with many variations to bypass other parties.

Great climb  Sucess!

Soloed the route except of the last 1 1/2 pitches which we simulclimbed. Descent was longer than expected with some snow and slippery slabs.

Great Views!  Sucess!

Climbed mostly free, then did a 5.8 variation after joining up with another group who let me tag along.

Free Solo Ascent  Sucess!

Great Simul-climb  Sucess!

Led/simul-climbed the NW Buttress with Chris Terry while Dave Millar and Joel Bernier soloed it beside us. The climbing was easier than expected. Clean, fun rock, easy pro, and easy routefinding. The 5.7 direct finish was also very fun and secure climbing.

Chris and I descended the SW Ridge, but took a shortcut descent off of the ridge somewhere between the standard route and the West Face route.

NW Buttress  Sucess!

Simul-climbed the whole route except for the last pitch, which was a nice crack that lead to the NE side of the summit. There were 3 of us and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

Awesome solo  Sucess!

This peak made a great solo...be sure to stay on route if you do solo it though!

Kinda short  Sucess!

Was anticipating a long route, but with simul-climbing and easy scrambling, it went by pretty fast. Pitched out a few at the top as we were on one of the 5.7-5.8 variations that led directly to the summit block.
