Grand Slam - Longs and its 4 buttress peaks  Sucess!

If you can make it to Pagosa after doing Meeker and Longs then you have the last two in the bag.

RMNP  Sucess!

Rocky Mountain National Park is always great place to climb, nice hike to Pagoda Mountain 13 miles. 5500 vertical ft, great day.

Crescent Ridge  Sucess!

with Natalie. Great trail approach, nasty bushwhack from there, great rock climbing up the initial buttress and scrambling after that, tedious and long descent.

Didn't quite make it

I was pretty close but it was getting late and I didn't want to be too high too late. Next time.

Keyboard - Pagoda Col  Sucess!

climbed up the Keyboard - Pagoda Col by staying on the right side on the solid rock to avoid all the scree. On the way down we found a trail that came down through the scree, wasn't too bad and sort of "skied" down parts of it. Don't think I would have liked going up that way. Not as hard a climb as I thought it was going to be. Saw some people on Longs, but no one on Pagoda - got to love doing other peaks besides 14ers.

North Buttress  Sucess!

North Buttress with shanahan96, fun route - especially the upper pitch. The only drawback is the north facing route stays in the shade late and can be a little chilly, bring gloves!

North Buttress & Crescent Ridge & West Ridge  Sucess!

8/8/09 - Climbed the very cool North Buttress - steep rock with juggy holds. Very nice line and lots of fun. Great summit views to top it off.

7/4/15 - Approached via Sandbeach Lake and climbed Crescent Ridge. Led the 5.6 crux, soloed the rest. Descended from Longs/ Pagoda saddle on snow.

9/12/15 - Climbed the West Ridge as part of the Glacier Gorge Traverse: Arrowhead -> McHenrys -> Chiefs Head -> Pagoda -> Longs -> Storm. Roped up for short 5.7 slab crux pitch and soloed the rest.

Via Glacier Gorge  Sucess!

Was a fun hike in. A lot of scree though going up the mountain and ended up being one of the harder ones I have ever done.

Via Glacier Gorge with Tim P.  Sucess!

Powdery snow and some wind combined to make this trip up Pagoda a bit of a toil, but fun none-the-less!

From Glacier Gorge  Sucess!

Ditto what everyone says about the beauty of the approach. I enjoyed seeing Long's peak and the other side of the keyhole route from lower down.

Via Glacier Gorge  Sucess!

Beautiful day on this solo climb of Pagoda via Glacier Gorge. Some snow and ice in the basin above Black Lake and the gully to the saddle was awful - extremely loose and difficult going. Views from top were amazing.

Route Climbed: Northeast ridge.  Sucess!

Pagoda Mountain 4,113 m (13,497 ft). Did the climb with Colorado Mountain Club members. The approaching to the mountain and the climb itself was great, despite the windchill at the top. The views of Longspeak were amazing!.

Radical Slam  Sucess!

Traversed over from the base of the Homestretch. Dropped down through the cliff band and ascended straight up. We dropped down the final gulley below the cliff band and traversed back to the keyhole, definitely the best route.
