NE Ridge  Sucess!

Climbed Polemonium via the NE Ridge with my buddies Wes and John. The knife-edge ridge was very exciting!

My final California 14’er via SW ridge.  Sucess!

This was my final California 14'er. It turned out to be a very emotional and physical battle to finally conquer the Palisades. A big thanks to my partners Patricia Bell and Garrett Broughton for their help.

From Sill  Sucess!

Took some friends up. Started at Gayley, then Sill, then over to Pole. Ended the traverse after being chase by thunder and rain.

Sweet!  Sucess!

Great day, and tougher than I expected. Next time I will try not to punch through the 'schrund.

U-notch and done!  Sucess!

My last CA 14er. Via U-notch, much harder for me than expected. The ice was extremely hard and brittle, was glad to get onto the short yet super fun rock pitches at the top. Made the last rap down over the 'shrund in the dark, long day.

"Continue up & right...."  Sucess!

Polemonium, the first in our three peak traverse that included North Pal & Starlight. We approached via the west chute from Palisade Basin. The climbing above the U-notch was much more challenging than I anticipated. Safely summitting and descending was made possible through the team effort of my partners, Phil & Joe.

Topped out at 5:30pm ish, after a windy night in the bivy sac. Rapped in half dark.

From North Pal  Sucess!

I looked for the Clyde Variation and probably missed it, so this was trickier than I had expected...

Part of "Mini" Traverse  Sucess!

Did this with Tom Becht and Glenn Gookin on a beautiful day. Truth to tell, after doing Thunderbolt's summit block and Starlight's "Milk Bottle" this peak was anti-climactic. we spent more time rapping down the U-Notch than scrambling up the other side to Polemonium.

Traverse  Sucess!

Long day doing the Palisades Traverse with Glenn and Augie. The peak was relatively easy after wasting a lot of time rapping into the U-Notch.

Summitted as part of Palisade Traverse  Sucess!

Hit PP as part of the Palisades traverse last summer. Great exposure and difficult route-finding, but Bruce kept us on course.

From the U-Notch  Sucess!

Fine climb with Samantha, Hakan (sierrawolf), and Vladimir. Vlad lead the two pitches. The second pitch should have a 5.6 rating.
