SW Chute #1  Sucess!

The 12th CA 14er for me and my husband! Thanks to guides Zach and Trevor for leading up the SW chute and the famed summit block. Headed out along the ridgeline to summit Starlight afterwards and reached the top of the milk bottle right as the afternoon thunderstorms started rolling in...

via SW Chute #1  Sucess!

Climbed up from camp in Palisade Basin with coworkers. Since it was a work-sponsored trip, we had a guide lead the summit block for us and we toproped the awesome 5.9. I intend to return for the entire traverse and am eager to do the daring lead myself.

via NW Ridge  Sucess!

Climbed the ridge with Vitaliy from our camp on the Palisade Glacier. All was going well until we reached the notch. From there we spent the rest of the day having routefinding issues, especially near the very end!

We bivvied at the top of the North Couloir and climbed the summit block the next day, descending Underhill Couloir. Lassoing it was VERY tricky!

Thunderbolt to Sill Traverse  Sucess!

Corey led it and set up a top rope for the rest of us. It was fun to top rope but I would have been pretty nervous to lead it. I hope to lead it after a few more years of climbing.

Summit Block Lead  Sucess!

Climbed with Fred & Luis from SW Chute #1. I lead the 5.9 side of the block with a belay from Fred.

Bottom Roped  Sucess!

On the traverse starting at South Lake and exiting to Glacier Lodge with Tom Becht and Glenn Gookin. Glenn led the 30' route while I belayed him. The crux was getting onto the block. Glenn then belayed me and Tom.
