Awesome route, should have soloed  Sucess!

EPIC route w/ Amy. Roped up for two pitches then soloed the rest. Amazing exposure on the ridge.

To the ridge

With BJ and Patricia. Wet after the weekend precipitation, waiting for sun to melt ice in the first crack slowed us down from the get go. Made the ridge after our turnaround time, enjoyed the view, then started the long slow down scramble and raps.

Cool!  Sucess!

Cool route with a short approach. Perfect climb for a short day. Only took 4 hours car to car.

Back for more  Sucess!

Looking for a short, moderate solo, I decided to repeat this route, and once again enjoyed it. Trip report.

Spicy and Exposed at times  Sucess!

It took me two tries but I got'er done. Lots of harder 3rd and 4th climbing and the ridge line was incredibly exposed at times. Not for the weak at heart..

nice  Sucess!

i think we got off route near the top, by staying too far right. we hit a roof/chockstone and we did a short roped traverse to the left, to get back on the slabs. nice climb.

nice solo route  Sucess!

Good waterflow all the way up, made the initial crux moves more interesting. A lot of class 2 on this route, nice finish on a classic knife-edge.

SE Face  Sucess!

Onsight guided this one. Great fun, but pretty windy up top. The descent was brutal coming down the south slopes. There has to be a better way.

SE Face  Sucess!

This climb is so good. I can't believe it's as obscure as it is considering the quality and the fact that everyone who has climbed says great things.

Birdman Buttress Variation  Sucess!

Raining out the main line, due to prior convective activity, so we opted to check out gucci's and wander up the nice face to the right of the right chimney. Great solo! Can't wait to come back in winter

Fun solo!  Sucess!

The first pitch was definitely wet. Took a variation to the right, super fun moves the whole way through and took the Birdman Variation. The middle of the route wasn't terribly interesting, but the start and finish of it more than made up for the break the middle provided. Excellent time!

Attempted to climb this route in winter of '09. Found a waterfall in the chimney and unconsolidated styrofoam snow in the chute. Never placed pro in a waterfall before. Made it to the Notch but had to bail. Horrible conditions.

Souteast Face  Sucess!

Wind, snow and rain on the summit ridge.

and again  Sucess!

With Lisa. Recovering from some nasty lingering intestinal bug and needed something short. Fun as always.

SE Face w/sunburn  Sucess!

Dave and I did this thing with perfect weather eventhough we followed a stinky mule pack the entire trail. Think I smelled shit the whole climb as well. ? Fun ridge, old approach shoes, handsome guy and bullshit descent. Great views of Desolation area.

se face encore  Sucess!

Fun solo as always. First alpine climb for Jascha and debut alpine climb during my hiatus from corp life. Chute was a bit wet, but still good friction. Still enough snow to glissade a good portion of the decent.

se face  Sucess!

Lazy morning and a late start, so I had the route to myself. Short approach, excellent granite, and a fun exposed ridge traverse - 5 stars in my book.

Secor's description was fairly easy to follow. Look for the cracks before the trail switches back southish toward the headwall with the waterfall.

Emerson SE Face  Sucess!

Very nice climb. Great exposure on the ridge. A few short pitches of 5.4 or so climbing.

Route Descended  Sucess!

Interesting climb - I wish I could have done the SE Face/Ridge w/ Bob and Glenn, but the water was too much for me. The SE chute was nice at the bottom, filled with a lot of bouldering moves, but the top 2/3 was a slog w/ a lot of branching dead ends.

I discovered the hard way that you can't just walk down the SW slopes, even though it looked doable on the topo!
