Easy but beautiful climb on incredibly solid rock. It started showering/hailing as we topped out. NE Face, you're next.
SE Buttress... Really awesome climb. Great quality rock. We did it in 4 pitches though... 8 seems like it would take forever.
South buttress, to the east face. Fun climb 5.6 route.
Standard route and K-cracks. Really fun climbing on superb rock. Weather was excellent.
Climbed the 5.9 SW face, right route on Friday and the super-classic NE face on Saturday. Nice alpine starts each day (climbing by noonish)!
Climbed it twice the week I was there. Wished I had tried the K-Kracks? I love the granite
Climbed the South Buttress in three pitches, finishing with the excellent K-crack. Car-to-car in just over 11 hours.
Relaxing climb in a beautiful area!
I climbed the NE face in 2006. Great climb.
An amazing line up an even more impressive peak. Full value for the grade. Be wary of the easy chimney...
Most of the routes in the Cirque are wonderful and this one is a clssic 5.8
A classic climb! We summited at about 12:30 avoiding a thunder storm by about 1/2 hour. I especially loved the upper pitches. See my trip report, if interested.
fun climbs: S. Buttress w/K crack , and the lo;wer left side cracks.
Another of the Classics on a cloudless, beautiful day. Wish I had remembered the camera...d'oh! Excellent rock and elegant line.
I wasn't feeling it that morning, but we got 'er done anyway. This time we did the last pitch to the NE summit. Once again we had this route to ourselves on a cloudless day. Then we watched crowds lined up on it for the rest of our time in the Cirque. Strange.
One of the best climbs at that grade that I've done. Killer views of Wolf's head, awesome weather, no mosquitos, no rain, good partner. What more do you want?
Attempted to do the climb from the trailhead in one day. Rapped off of Pitch 5- ran out of time. The area was very crowded with hikers, climbers, fishermen.
Awesome climb, great rock.
Beautiful Peak. Great view. Solid rock.
Great Climb!! I can't believe it was only 3 pitches!
