Route Climbed: East Face, Right Side Date Climbed: Aug 5, 2000  Sucess!

Climbed this with mconnell. We intended to climb the East Couloir, but got off-track to the left side of the couloir. No matter. We forged what we thought was a new route, only to find a rappel sling no more than a few years old, and later a section of hemp rope from days gone by.

We climbed the north summit first (not by the easiest route, we found later), followed by the south summit. In tossing our rope over the summit block and pulling it taut, blind luck caught it in the carabiner on the summit bolts. Ha! What a fun day! Here's the trip report, if you care. :)

Route Climbed: east couloir/east face Date Climbed: Aug 2000  Sucess!

We started out heading up the couloir but took the wrong branch. Ended up near the east face. Climbed both summits.
