Good views  Sucess!

From Pawnee Pass  Sucess!

The pup and I strolled over to Shoshoni after summiting Pawnee and Toll. Views were pretty outstanding.

Via Pawnee Pass from Long Lake TH  Sucess!

It was crazy cold and windy today for early October! Really loved this petite little summit, and the views - especially of Navajo and Apache - were absurd. With Tom and Mike.

Pawnee Pass  Sucess!

I climbed Shoshoni with my friend, Juliebeth. I had attempted Shoshoni several years ago with the CMC, but the weather was bad, and we turned back at Pawnee Pass. This time we were successful. We started around 11AM, reached the summit just before 3, and got back down around 7. The weather cooperated quite nicely. It was sunny and cool, but not cold. The leaves are starting to change up there.

Via Pawnee Pass  Sucess!

I've climbed this peak probably half a dozen times, and the views never disappoint. One of my favorite hikes close to Denver.

from Pawnee Pass  Sucess!

Headed from the Long Lake trailhead, over Pawnee Pass. Short, but a bit exposed final push to the summit. Fall colors were in abundance. Nice.

Again  Sucess!

Headed up to do Kasparov again. . . Freezing cold temps and high winds made us shoot for plan B. It's summer and my water was freezing. Grrrrrrr.

The East Ridge  Sucess!

An easy scrambling route on a great mountain. The wildflowers were electric! Loved it.

NE Ridge  Sucess!

Awesome summit, climbed it via the NE Ridge which was nice.

Very unique summit! (Shoshoni Peak via East Ridge)  Sucess!

Ascended via the east ridge. The ridge is steep, but fairly stable. The summit of Shoshoni is VERY unique -- several prominent peaks with very airy drop offs. One of my favorite summits in IPW due to the exposure. :-)

SW couloir far left  Sucess!

I've done quite a few couloir climbs, and this one is probably the steepest one I've done, although steepness can be highly variable. I forgot to bring my inclinometer for this trip, but we estimated it to be sustained in the low 50's for a good portion of the climb. Bypassed the nasty crux by protecting the 5.2 bypass to the right. Snow was very firm, but soft enough to get the shaft of the axe down. First time to use a 2nd tool on a snow climb! Tough work for the lead climber! Shoshoni has an amazing summit view with a nice, airy scramble at the end complete with goat crap!

SW Couloirs (westernmost & central)  Sucess!

6/14/09 - Climbed the westernmost, most difficult of the three couloirs. The rock crux was in bad shape with sketchy snow. There were no protection opportunities before trying to pull the first few moves. Backed off and climbed the short workaround 5.2 rock pitch on the right side of the couloir. That worked very well and deposited us directly above the mess. The snow in the couloir was very hard making upward progress slow and labor intensive. This felt like one of the most serious snow climbs I've done but I don't know how much of that was due to conditions. It was sustained and steep the whole way - in the 50's. Great day! Somewhat of a surprise, but a good one.

6/7/14 - Walked the road and climbed the central couloir on the southwest face in perfect snow conditions w/ Ryan, Steph & Dom. Optional near vertical exit where cornice had broken off. Lake Isabelle area was shockingly empty, only saw party of two across the basin on Queensway!
