Tour de Grant  Sucess!

Ascended the South Ridge. Descended the borderline dangerous East Ridge. What a choss-fest. Holy shit.
With Regina Thomas.

Ice / Island Lakes  Sucess!

Up the standard trail for Pilot Knob, over to Island Lake, up US Grant, then up V4. Great day!

SW Ridge  Sucess!

I found US Grant to be the best of the Ice Lake Basin peaks. The approach was not nearly as tedious as the others where talus is concerned, which made the saddle easy to get to. The ridge was fun and the crux surprisingly solid.

Great all around  Sucess!

Awesome hike in and a few fun moves below the summit. Great scenery and views the entire time!

SW ridge  Sucess!

lovely scramble with Patrick, very easy and short climbing section, no rope needed, and very obvious route finding with frequent cairns on the ridge

Awesome Summit

Climb with RasGoat & Paul Knill. Great Day, great summit with just enough intrigue on the summit. Island Lake is gorgeous.

SW Ridge  Sucess!

Fun day climbing US Grant, then saddled to V4, and finished the day on V2.

East Ridge!  Sucess!

V2 then the East Ridge of US Grant, to V4. Followed the ridge almost all of the way to Pilot Knob, but had to descend and bagged her.

Rope definitely NOT needed.

Memorial Day  Sucess!

"V4", US Grant and "V2" with Steve, great loop of peaks. US Grant is a fun peak to climb, crux was not too difficult, but a steep step! Great views of Ice Lakes Basin from the top.

middle gulley  Sucess!

so loose i ended up climbing up some side faces just to get out of the scree

power peak  Sucess!

climbed U.S. Grant's southwest ridge during a loop with V4 and V2. the crux step(4th class-low 5th, easily argued both ways) was quite interesting with ball bearing scree all over the ledges and no usable handholds higher up. the death cookies in the final gully didn't inspire much confidence either!

and yes, i loved the climb! when are we going back rodenak?

Fun little climb  Sucess!

Climbed "V4", descended loose crap over to US Grant, climbed standard route, then traversed mostly on ridge to "V2". The connecting ridge held some fun 4th class scrambling. Island Lake was beautiful.

Southwest Ridge  Sucess!

From "V 4". To "V 2". 5:16 from 4WD Trailhead.

sw ridge  Sucess!

I must say this is one of my favorite 13ers to date. We traverse over to US Grant from V4, which is heinously loose. From the saddle, a strong climbers trail keeps the routefinding easy. The crux 12 ft crack climb is hard 4th class if you go up the left one and low 5th class on the right one. Very rewarding summit. I didn't feel the need for a rope even on the downclimb, and I am not a huge fan of exposure.

SW Ridge  Sucess!

Excellent day in the mountains. The crux section was dry, and the talus slope up to the saddle was still snow-covered for the most part, so it made for a nice snow climb. I'd call the crux 5.0-5.2, not 4th class, but that's me.
