Stopped short

of the peak, but found Mildred Lake while en route. September is a perfect time to be in Yosemite.

NW buttress  Sucess!

simul-climbed all but the final pitch. I remember the descent being kinda hellish.

NW Buttress  Sucess!

Simul-climbed the first 8 "pitches", then pitched it out on a direct variation that brought us out right at the summit block. Took the variation to avoid a party in front of us, and it ended up being quicker as it was much more direct.

We simul climbed it except one pitch when we had to leave the route to avoid the crowds.

NW Buttress  Sucess!

SuperTopo says this is a 14 pitch 5.5. Don't let it fool you. We did it in about 5 and climbing is rather boring. The best way to do this is simul climbing the whole thing.

Finally!  Sucess!

Ever since I swam for the first time in Tenaya Lake on the way to meet my friend Zathan to climb Whitney (my first High Sierra peak!), I was impressed by this peak & looked foreward to climbing it...

When I found out about the NW buttress, the idea of an ascent became even more appealing...

As a result, savored the actual climb as much as could be expected, & was thrilled! Excellent rock, sustained 4th-easy 5th, great views, & had the route to myself! The 5.7 hand crack at the top was a perfect finish- hardest part of the climb, & one tops out on the summit ridge about 1 min from the true summit!

Hummingbird gave me its blessing before start of climb, & a marmot scrambled up the initial 4th class friction, showing me the start of the route. I knew at that point that it was going to be a good climb & day!

Left car 10.01, reached base of climb at 10.31. Started the route at 11.00. Summited 12.30, hung out there for awhile. Left 13.05, & got back to car at 14.30.

Post-climb swim & hanging out at Tenaya Lake was icing on the cake!

I would highly recommend this climb.

8.29.'10 After other plans fell through, decided to do the buttress again. As much fun as the first time- wonderful climb! This go-round, I would call the final 'exit' crack no harder than 5.6, but whatever. From the base of the route to the summit :53, round trip (including hanging out at summit for ~:30) ~3 hours. Great climb!

Mary and I did this one on a 2-day trip to Tuolumne. We simul-climbed the whole route in about 2.5 hrs. Really fun climbing on nice rock with a great summit view over Tenaya Lake. The whole thing took about 6 hr car to car.

From East  Sucess!

Dayhike with Tressider and Columbia Finger. An excellent view it would be, even better than Hoffman IMHO, were it not for the smoke.

NW Buttress  Sucess!

With GregS - thanks Bro. A wonderful way to finish off a multi-day trip, and the summer climbing season. Way easy climbing - except that icey patch on the upper friction slab!!
