Static + Richthofen  Sucess!

Started just before 3PM at American Lakes TH. Climbed up East Ridge of Static Peak first. Followed connecting ridge to Mount Richthofen. Idea was to descend to Lake Agnes. Wasn't sure if it was from the North Saddle or South Saddle of Richthofen. Ended up choosing the more southern one (way worse) and got myself into the worst terrain I have ever been on. Easily class 5 with rotten and loose rock. Highly suggest NEVER going down or up that way. It was dark by the time I got down to Lake Agnes. While I could have hiked the final 7 mi back, some folks that were camping were nice enough to offer me a ride back to the TH after hearing about my bad experience. Back at 9PM.

East Ridge Route  Sucess!

Started from the trailhead at Cameron Pass around 6:15AM. Hardened snow until the trail branch for American Lakes. Snow shoes from there until start of ridge. Ridge has lots of exposed ledges, many hidden by snow. Nice weather except for occasional wind gusts. Back at car around 2PM.

With Richtofen  Sucess!

I definitely took the unnecessarily loose and dangerous route up from Box Canyon to Static and then followed the ridge to Richtofen before dropping down to the ridge between Box Canyon and Skeleton Gultch and then back in to Box Canyon. Fun route, except for the absurdly loose upper reached of Box Canyon, with great views.

From Richtofen...  Sucess!

This was a chill walk after Richtofen, but a heart racing decent via the east ridge, down to Snow Lake.

From the North East  Sucess!

Came from the Michigan Lakes trail head and climbed the North-East Rige up. Came down the East face, a bit hairy. Cant wait to do again in Winter conditions.

Route Climbed: ascended South Ridge, descended East Ridge Date Climbed: July 11, 2004  Sucess!

This was the final summit of the day after bagging Tepee and Richthofen. I was a little worried about the east ridge especially after Roach described Tepee's north ridge as class two. And though the exposure was very sustained I found the scrambling very enjoyable.
