North Ridge   Sucess!

Short scramble from Dade lake on fairly solid rock. Good views of Rosy Finch and Bear Creek Spire. I descended the west face (below the west ridge) and it was terribly loose class 2; better to stay on the ridge.

Bonus Peaks!  Sucess!

Set up camp at Dade Lake with Gordon Ye for climbing the NE Ridge of Bear Creek Spire the next day. I had some time left in the day, so I climbed the N Ridge of Rosy Finch Peak, then traversed to Pyramid Peak and descended the W Ridge to the col with the NE Ridge of Bear Creek Spire. A good afternoon out on a lot of cl. 3-4+ knife-edge ridges, though there was a LOT of loose rock too!

Fun little peak  Sucess!

Climbed this with the wife and a buddy in mid June. Had the bright of idea of wearing shorts with my gaiters and got the worst sun burn ever behind my knees. Fun climb though.

Storms over the crest  Sucess!

Nice clear morning but got back soak, running to the trailhead.

N Ridge  Sucess!

With a mere 5 or so hours of sleep in 2 days, my plans to climb Mt Gabb changed to plans to climb Bear Creek Spire and finally to climb Pyramid Peak. The climb was interesting cls3 along the ridge with great views from the top.

Via North Ridge  Sucess!

Had a fun run to and from Gem Lakes from Mosquito Flats and scramble up the peak. Sobering views of the fire in Big Pine Canyon from the top. A fun morning with great views all around.

Via North Ridge  Sucess!

The N.Ridge is very quality class 3 and some more interesting stuff if one stays dedicated to the crest. I don't know what happened to the rock quality on the southwest ridge, though --- the two are certainly not related. Did this little trip up to Pyramid, BCS, and Pipsqueak as part of my knee rehab program, accompanied by friends Barry, Stan, and D.Rod. We were quite pleased to find a register entry by Peewee Croft.

Pyramid Pk from Morgan Pass  Sucess!

Debbie, Russ and I decided to hike up to Morgan Pass and then boulder over to the North Ridge. As suggested we tried to stay on the ridge proper only venturing away to the right when it got too difficult. The trip was longer than expected as the rocks were loose and we were careful. It took nearly 2 hours to get back down to Gem Lakes and then nearly 2 hours more on the trail to Mosquito Flat. A great experience and our 2nd attempt. Our first attempt failed 2 years ago from the saddle between BCS and Pyramid when one of our members got slightly injured on loose rock. This ridge might be another fun way to go.

North Ridge (3rd Class)  Sucess!

Deb and I sought out to find the path of least resistance on the North Ridge. What we ended up trying to attempt was a traverse over to the east face of Pyramid and ran into some REALLY loose 4th class...way too spicey for me! We ended up back tracking and keeping to the west side of the North Ridge. Saw Bob's name in the register. Last peak in the circuit we travelled around in and around Dade Lake. We alo hit BCS NE Ridge, Pipsqueek, and Dade.

Pyramid Peak  Sucess!

Just a little morning jaunt up whatever way looked reasonable, namely the scramble-ho from Dade Lake with some lovely loose 4th class rubble. Beautiful view of BCS's eastern face and nice summit register can. HEY, don't knock down my cairn, it's my first summit creation. :)

Route Climbed: Northwest Face (ascent) / Southwest Ridge (descent) Date Climbed: Sept 9,1998  Sucess!

An easy but fun scramble. Weather was pretty marginal the four days we camped at Treasure Lakes, shortly after leaving the summit and descending to Spire Lake, all hell broke loose on Terry and I. Fortunately, the tempest didn't last long. Trip Report.

Route Climbed: North Ridge Date Climbed: Summer 2001

On my sirst ascent, I climbed with Craig and Melanie, we were headed for Bear Creek Spire, but it was in a T-Storm and Pyramid wasn't. The North Ridge is fun class 3.

September 25, 2006
Climbed with ScottyS, D-Rod, and Stan, this was the first objective of the day, followed by Bear Creek Spire and Pipsqueak Spire. The North Ridge is a fine scramble if you stick to the crest.
