Peak Number 2 on the Triple Traverse  Sucess!

May 27, 2011: Did the Triple Traverse with Joe B, and Matt V. The snow, even the avy debris, was very soft in Tanners, so the going was slow.

May 16, 2009 - Did this peak as part of the Triple Traverse with a group of seven from SP. We had prime conditions.

Triple Traverse  Sucess!

Part of the Triple Traverse. Excellent Snow up the east ridge, not as much as I'd like down the west.

Mutiple routes and climbs  Sucess!

Usually part of a long traverse, the longest one day Sunrise to Sunset. 3 times as part of the Cottonwood ridge traverse, a half dozen triple traverses, even a few solo's!

E Ridge from Tanners  Sucess!

Ascended a snow-free Tanners Gulch and ascended the E Ridge of Sunrise to the summit. Tanners without snow is awful and dangerous. Don't do it.

Up and Down Tanners  Sucess!

Climbed up Tanners Gulch and summited Dromedary, then traversed the ridge to the col and went up Sunrise. Sweet 3rd class climbing from the col, and an amazing uninterrupted 1500' glissade on corn snow for the descent!

Route Climbed: Tanner's Gulch/East Ridge  Sucess!

Fun route with fun spring snow conditions.

"Double Traverse" from Tanners to BF Twins  Sucess!

as part of Walt Haas' annual Triple Traverse (which for me was a Double since I opted to skip Dromedary). I bit off almost more than I can chew doing this intimidating mountain as my first "real" snow climb (and my first winter/spring Elevener), and I considered bailing from Tanner's saddle, but I'm extremely glad I went through with it. The views of and from those peaks when snowy are unsurpassed, and then there's that awesome feeling you get when you successfully push your personal limits.

Triple Traverse

So intimidating from the saddle of it and Dromedary when it's covered in snow. Just start climbing.

Nice surprise

Climbed with my friend Scott on a perfect fall day. This one was a little harder then expected, but a nice scramble

Cottonwood Ridge, East Ridge   Sucess!

I climbed up the East Ridge with Dmitry. We watched as the clouds circled around the summit as they went over the top of Sunrise Peak from Little Cottonwood Canyon.
