Beak Baggin Family  Sucess!

Great day with awesome company. My baby girl Nat, her sister Kim and my peak baggin Brother Ken. Peaking Family. Beautiful day well worth the hike great views and some of the sweetest spring water I've ever tasted coming right out of the mountain on the way down. Don't miss Johnson's in St. Mary the best home style cooked food in the area. Watch out they pick on vegetarians :)

For the record  Sucess!

Climbed with Blake and Bobby for Blake's book. Climbed up directly from the pass to the ledge and then traversed across to the summit ridge. Crappy rock but relatively easy. Fall colors were setting in nicely. Got a great view of the Thompson fire's course.

Great Day  Sucess!

Solo. Climbed the scree and cliffs up to the north end of the saddle. Rock is really rotten but a fun day.

Unique Summit  Sucess!

Went up the gully south of the peak. I brought my snow gear since the chute was still full but I was able to shimmy up the rock on the side of the drift. For my traverse below the cliffs and my approach to the summit, I had spectators down in the pass - a rarity for me. I also ran into some of that notorious rotten rock up on top.

Special  Sucess!

From this peak if you haul up enough water you can watch it run in 3 directions toward 3 oceans. That makes this one worth the effort, but what makes it more so is the fun mostly class 4 adventure of steps about 5 feet each requiring never more than some bouldering moves, but always with exposure. From Triple Divide Pass. Some iceberg filled lakes glisten below and Split Mountain's monstrous potential looms and taunts too. The best views were up the route, making your adventure look like death defiance, though it surely isn't. I left some gawkers below who wouldn't have tried this for all the money offered on a reality TV contest and thought I was nuts to solo it. Fine exercise. Combined in a day with Mt James.

Triple Divide

Up the east face then down the scree notch with Red and Joel. Saw a moose in the valley on the way down. We were the only humans in the valley that day.

the easier way...  Sucess!

Opted for the class III route through a break in the Continental Divide a ways south of the peak. Enjoyable, easy route. Considered entertaining the idea of trying the east face, but strong, gusty winds and cold temps prevented us from doing so. Hoped to climb James as well, but the continuous plume of wind swept snow flying off the summit held us back! Great views from this very unique peak.

Triple Divide and James  Sucess!

August 2001
Went up the East face with Aleksa. Love the fact that it drains into 3 watersheds but even more impressive is the close up of the east face of Mt. Stimson that you get from the top.

Done solo, but still one of the best climbs of the summer! I was so taken with the day, it actually inspired me to write a Trip Report (not something I do often)!
