15 hours car-to-car.
WHAT A DAY!
Single day push, 14 hours car to car. Absolutely spectacular route!
Beautiful blue sky, no wind, and mild temps made for perfect conditions.
08/30/13 via West ridge. Camped at Colchuck Lake.
09/27/16 via West Ridge with Jeff up snow creek
Climbed the west ridge w/ Dan Anderson, looking forward to coming back for the Stanley-Burgner.
Fun climb. Unfortunately we were mauled by mosquitoes the entire time...
Fun wkd with Yogesh, Heather, Noam, Kelly and Jeff as my exposure to a Mountaineers climbing trip.
Great ridge climb went smoothly. Still surprising amount of snow on north side.
After aborted W ridge attempt with Jake 7.25 (predicted rains came about 7 hours early :( ), returned with Faith to do the S face (Stanley-Burgner). Left from our camp @ Colchuck 5ish/shortly after 5. Fantastic route! Led all pitches. Did 5.8 dihedral/arête P1 variation)- fun. Off-width not as bad as I surmised it might be (if you can do an off-width/chimney in The Valley @ a given grade, you can do that grade off-width/chimney anywhere else :). Last pitch was a thin, exposed, AWESOME finish to a spectacular climb. The rock here was- dare I say it??!!!- as good as anything in California. Aasgard Pass SUCKED. Back to camp after 2 in the morning/night- UGH. Epic day!
Stanley Burgnar route. Led second and last pitch, which was a fantastic exit pitch. We climbed the route in four pitches with a 70M rope. First two and three and four link.
Did the West Ridge twice; car to car in a day via Snow Lakes and in late season from Colchuck Lake.
SB South face. rope snag on last rap slowed us down a tad. (14hrs still fast enough for me)
Fun to be back in the hills with Bruce.
Glad to let him lead the last 2 pitches - gnarly - but he smoked it. I did not.
Beautiful area and how cool to top out of crux pitches at such a summit!
Rope got stuck on rapel so I made the peaks name actually worthwhile haha
Unable to get permits, went in a single push. Approached from Snow Lakes, 4 1/2 hours to base of route. 17 hours round trip, including some summit relax time. Final pitch sand-bagged, felt at least 5.10A.
Great climb with Excitable Boy. Awesome late fall outing, weather cooperated. A bit cold and snow/ice on approach and descent added to alpine feel. Approach via Colchuck Lake was nice and scenic.
up colchuck down snow. Fun climb. I think I'm in love with granite. from a previous limestone lover.
Climbed with Brian car-to-car from Mountaineers Creek TH. A worthwhile grunt.
Awsome, clean granite with unbeatable views of the Enchantments
Mosquitoes sucked (I think I'd rather have the wind), but it was a very interesting and varied route.
My first alpine climb. The camping was incredible and the climb was great.
Climbed this with my homie J-Dog. One of my favorite climbs.
