Nice page. I have been curious about this one for a long time now.
Thanks for the vote and comments. Appreciate it.
Ah, you beat me to it! I did this one on August 2 but didn't get around to putting up the page. Fortunately I took a slightly different route (standard according to Dodge) and have something to add... later.
Hmm, I wonder if those were your footprints I saw in the scree going up to the notch between rocks. Doesn't look like too many do this one, eh? Would love to see what way you went. There is a standard approach? Can't wait to see what you add. Thanks for the vote!
Nicely done, Brian! Is there something Freudian going on here?...
Thanks for the vote.
Freudian, very funny. Very funny.
Nice looking page Brian.
Thank you sir! Appreciate the vote.
Thanks for the vote. Appreciate it.
Great page Brian.
Thanks much. Appreciate your nice words and the vote.
Great to see this forgotten peak finally show up on Summitpost. It was virtually unmentioned online until now. I only get to my home state about once a year these days. I'd planned to do the Husband last October, but ended up hanging around St. Helens during the excitment instead. I may try The Husband next month.
Hey thanks. Good luck on the climb and thanks for the vote.
Looking at this, I am realizing that I took a different route to the summit. Looking at what must be the SE facing bowl/cirque, I took a fairly vertical seam of good rock up thirty-forty feet of 4th/low 5th climbing with a scramble up to the summit. Is that significantly different than the standard route?
Sounds like you may have gone further towards the summit before heading up. Here is where I went up and gained the ridge south of the summit and scrambled along there for a while until I hit the summit. Here is another closer shot of that area. The way I went it was Class 3/4 or maybe just exposed 3, nothing 5th. Did you descend the same route and downclimb it? I give you credit if you downclimbed 5th class junk like this!
The first picture actually looks a lot like the way I went, but the second one does not. As I recall, the seam I climbed was actually quite solid compared to the rest of the crap around, but it was 8 or 9 years ago. Regardless, I did downclimb it, but like I said, it certainly didn't seem too bad.
