Thanks ....so the El Diente Wilson will be your last? I would highly recommend doing the West Ridge of El Diente. This was my first of the 4. Failed on the Crestone traverse :( Plan to do Little Bear - Blanca and the Bells this year.
Is this the West Ridge of El Diente I'm looking at? If so, please submit the route! I thought about doing the mountain this way and opted for known territory instead by climbing the south slopes route. The West Ridge looks challenging and enticing. If your picture is the West Ridge below the summit, perhaps it's a bit more challenging than I thought! Great photo!
Yup it certainly is the west ridge :) W decided to take the west ridge because it looked like a fun 4th class climb and a good route for the traverse to Wilson. What would I need to do to submit the route?
Cool! This is my first good look at it, and perhaps the first good picture of the West Ridge on the net! Thanks! I'll send you the route stuff via email.
