Climbed this route in September 2002 in cold weather.
Good route in a fantastic environment
Fairly sustained difficulty, but nothing really stood out besides the view of Wolf's Head from the summit. Descended the 5.2 east ledges. Trip report.
In the Wind's for three days and two night. Worst mosquito's I have ever encountered in six trips to the winds. I got over 400 mosquito bites. My partner had even more. All three pitches of the South Buttress 5.6, 5.6 and 5.8 K crack were great.
We thought the route was harder than a 5.6 but then we realized that we missed the traverse right at the beginning of pitch 5. We got caught in a bad hailstorm on the descent. Get an early start cause storms can blow in fast!
Wished I had tried the K-Cracks but I only had my hiking boots
Started on the south face, then we traversed to the east face. It was supposed to be 5.2, but it turned into a 5.6, with a rap. Great mountain, on good rock!
A straight forward day. The K-Cracks are a very cool feature. A lot of fun. Climbed it the morning before we hiked out.
We climbed this route our last morning in the Cirque via the K Cracks - what a fun pitch.
