South Buttress  Sucess!

Climbed it twice the week I was there. Wished I had tried the K-Kracks? I love the granite

Northeast Face - Spectacular Route

An amazing line up an even more impressive peak. Full value for the grade. Be wary of the easy chimney...

Awesome climb!  Sucess!

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.

NE Face  Sucess!

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.

S> buttress  Sucess!

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?

Impressive Towers

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.

Route Climbed: South Buttress Date Climbed: August 16, 2005

Penelope May and I climbed the South Buttress of Pingora to the small ledge below the "K" Cracks. While I was climbing the last 40-60 feet toward the base of the cracks, the weather changed from mostly clear to totally sacked in and within minutes, a huge hail storm developed. The rain and hail was so strong, we really could not move to sort our ropes and to attempt to rap. We removed all our (metal) hardware, placed it on the ledge, downclimbed about 30 feet to another small ledge and waited. We spent 3 hours on that ledge while 5 inches of hail fell. Penelope was the victim of (residual) lightening hit, which hit her hip and I felt couple currents go through my legs. It was extremely scary situation. After the storm, we just rapped the line as quickly as we could. Didn't go to the summit but that was not that important at the moment.

Route Climbed: North East Face Date Climbed: August 13, 2002  Sucess!

An epic nine day trip!! We got caught high on the route by a snowstorm and high winds, had to rescue a group below us and were unable to find camp that night. Bivied on a ledge in 20 degree weather - four guys and two space blankets.
