South slopes  Sucess!

After a morning scramble up Arrow from camp at the beaver pond near Elk Creek, the weather was still good so I took the easy way up Vestal. Worst part was getting up to and down from the saddle up terrible scree.

Wham  Sucess!

That's why it's a classic! The descent was not TOO bad until the saddle with Arrow. We heard later that we should've gone over to the Arrow side of the saddle for this descent.

Solo climb of Wham Ridge on a day trip from Molas TH. Descended via South Slopes route and "Dues Collector" in light rain. Stellar climbing on Wham Ridge, descent is not so great.

Wham!  Sucess!

Mid July 2010 - I don't know how anyone can see a picture of Vestal, and not immediately hop in the car, drive to the trailhead, and climb the thing. Wham ridge was one of the best scrambles of my life, on one of the most scenic mountains.

Wham Ridge, Vestal Peak  Sucess!

Climbed directly up the center. Seemed like the most fun and it was! Did 8 pitches, about half of them simul-climbing.
