Longest day to date.   Sucess!

West ridge done in a day. WOW, what a fun day! Tough and definitely a sufferfest but worth all the blisters. It took us 19 hours in total. First ever alpine climb for both my friend and me, hooked. The climbing is an absolute blast and great scenery from car to car.

WR w/ Mounties  Sucess!

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.

Fantastic!  Sucess!

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/arĂȘte 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!

South Face  Sucess!

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.

Great day with Bruce  Sucess!

Awesome climb!

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!

South Face B-S  Sucess!

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.

West Ridge Late Fall  Sucess!

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.

West Ridge  Sucess!

Mosquitoes sucked (I think I'd rather have the wind), but it was a very interesting and varied route.
