Up southwest face, down east ridge  Sucess!

My experience seems different than others because I had solid rock almost the whole way up the SW face. Got loose up top. I hit the south ridge at 11,000--which was perfect because that's just past the end of the towers.
Descended the east ridge and made the connection to 10340 (Long Ridge Peak).

Great day  Sucess!

This peak sits near several headwaters, making it a nice place to view some of the more remote Pioneers. The 'standard' gully (east fork route) is quite loose and I managed to go up a rib a bit past it that was very solid. I got to contrast by going down the gully and would not recommend it. What a gorgeous area!

Loose  Sucess!

Beautiful valley, surrounding peaks and views, but really ugly scree slog up the SW slopes. Hands pulling on loose tiny scree for most of this route. Last signature was Splattski. Dropped down and then over to the base of Big Basin Pk- lots of snowfields all around. Sunny, Breezy 65F.

1st Winter Ascent  Sucess!

Cold, windy, snowy, brutal, miserable, and fun! Saw 5 mountain goats, lost one water bottle, and got to "practice" self arrest. Fantastic view! Climbed with Splattski and Rob.

good Pioneer views  Sucess!

quick trip up the Southwest Face if you can drive to the end of the road. A bit of loose rock but routefinding is straightforward. Great views all around

Route Climbed: Southwest Face Date Climbed: August20th/05  Sucess!

Absolutely gorgeous and rotten rock on this one. It basically took as long to drive in and out of there as it did to climb the thing.

I would suggest hiking poles for the last 900' on loose scree to help.
