Rough trail, fun summit  Sucess!

The trail up from the river to Headlee Pass was not especially fun: lots of rocks and repetitive switchbacks. But I really enjoyed the final stretch from Vesper Creek to the summit: first a steep trail, then snowfields, then a final scrambly bit. After Vesper, I traversed to the north below Wolf Peak and then went up Sperry Peak.

Up I Go

5/24/17 Solo. Camped near the summit and skied off the next day in the whiteout. Good Times

Ancient Volcano  Sucess!

Probably the easiest peak I've climbed. Basically a walk up. I want to go to find some garnets next time on the south side.

Beautiful Day, Beautiful View  Sucess!

After 4 failed attempts, I finally made it up! A difficult hike but well worth it

hiking route, fog, still spectacular  Sucess!

Couldn't see anything on the way up, and it was still fun. It partly cleared on the way down, and that made the descent just as fun, because there wasn't the usual "I've already seen this" feeling. Spectacular place.

Awesome summer scramble!  Sucess!

Amazing views in all directions from the summit. Fun scramble.

Vesper via Headlee Pass  Sucess!

Got up early and summited via hiking route for my birthday. Fantastic hike, will definitely be back!

Long morning ascent  Sucess!

It was a long long retrospect, however, great snow! :)

Vesper Peak  Sucess!

Hiked up Vesper Peak yesterday. Some snow on the steep slabs near the summit. Just needed poles and gaiters.

Vesper and Sperry  Sucess!

I summited Vesper and Sperry, the classic combo! I though Vesper was the better climb, but Sperry had the better summit. Beautiful day! I went early, and hiked fast... I had both summits and both routes to myself for the ascents. I liked the slabs on Vesper but was a little disappointed there wasn't more class 3, but due to the low angle this would be a great climb to introduce someone to scrambling. 7 1/2 hours car to car with about 1 hour total spent on the summits.

Zero Visibility  Sucess!

Met dense fog after Headlee Pass which made for an eerie climb to the summit.

via Headlee  Sucess!

Date is a wild guess, was long time ago. Standard scramble route. What a blast.

Rain on Vesper  Sucess!

Was planning on Sperry and Vesper but decided to head back after summiting Vesper, still quite a bit of snow up there and i hadn't brought crampons.

Vesper Peak  Sucess!

Est. Date

Made it alone, but not alone on top. Excellent scrambling along the ridge connecting to Sperry peak

North face  Sucess!

Good times with Oyvind. crossing the moat to 1969 route was the spicy crux. Aesthetic and varied route in an awesome setting.
should have brought more double runners. Sword at the summit was novel. 10hrs car to car- I think we made time on fun boot skiing.
We were able to be first responders on a feel-good rescue en route home (Robe canyon twisted ankle EMRU mission) to boot.

Change of Plans  Sucess!

Headed up to do the north face, ended up just going up the hiking route. I'll be back...
