Route Climbed: SE Side Date Climbed: July 3, 2003  Sucess!

After a failed attempt on June 30 due to deep snow and wind slabs, I reached the summit three days later in 4.5 hrs from base camp. What a great climb! It has a little bit of everything - steep snow slopes (two tools helpful), a broad sweeping glacier, easy rock scrambling, and a nice sharp summit. I really enjoyed the route, although the moraine leading up to the glacier was a bit tedious. My partner Tony Lombardo also reached the summit.

Route Climbed: Aug. 11th 1998 Date Climbed: Normal route to the SE Face  Sucess!

It took me 4 hours from base camp to the summit, 2 hours down. One of those silly days racing to oneself.

Route Climbed: Normal (Urus Este) Date Climbed: June, 2002  Sucess!



Climbed in June 2002 with Micah Lambeth. Nice sunny weather once we got a few hundred feet above the foggy valley floor. Crowded base camp but had the mt to ourselves - lucky timing I guess. Moderate climbing - just a couple stretches of about 35 degrees. Nice small summit.
