Balsam Lake  Sucess!

With Scot from Balsam Lake. Climbed to the 8/9 saddle, dropped to the base of a grass ramp that climbs about 150' feet then traversed the long grass ledge system to the the base of a class 3 gully to the east ridge. Challenging route finding, was much easier on the way down.

From the north  Sucess!

Traversed over from Storm King. I climbed through the notch onto the south face (Leviathan Creek side), then it was a class 3-4 traverse to the summit. Trip report.

West Face/Ridge  Sucess!

The route is surprisingly easy but it is NOT straight-forward. Peak Nine is crazy loose. A true San Juan peak. The looseness is what gives this mountain it's 'bad' status. A few cairns are interspersed. Thanks to Theresa Gergen, we found the hidden class-3 chimney to the summit. Register had Jennifer Sears noted...pre-Roach! Will challenge your route-finding skills.

West Face  Sucess!

Peak #12 of 31 on 10 day trip. Almost turned back before going, but it's much easier than it looks.
