Traverse from Tbolt  Sucess!

Ridgeline was phenomenal! Thanks to our guide Trevor for great leading along the traverse and up the famed summit block. A little extra adrenaline kick: made it to the top of the milk bottle as thunder and lightning started flashing a few miles away.

t-bolt to n. pal  Sucess!

Stellar and unique experience on this high ridgeline...wasted a few too many hours on routefinding errors on Starlight to complete the traverse to Sill, but still had a smashing long day!

More straightforward?  Sucess!

than getting to Thunderbolt from the N Couloir, or the final section to North Pal!

The 5.6 downclimb was pretty fun, and not that bad. It seemed to me that this route also had more solid rock than the section between Starlight and North Pal.

Palisades Traverse  Sucess!

With Tom Becht and Glenn Gookin. Thunderbolt and Starlight were the highlights because of their summit blocks.

Done...  Sucess!

Did this traverse twice. first time it took around 6 hours to link Thunderbolt to Starlight...route finding was tricky. The second time it took 3 hours and carried on with the full palisade traverse.
