Climbed the west ridge/flank in the morning with 3 friends. Great views! In the afternoon we crossed the highway and climbed "Crooked Bum".
Turned around about 100 feet below summit to due lightning. Great view of Black and Corteo.
An interesting climb in the right conditions. Spring in the coilour and winter on the ridge.
July 1982. We picked our way up and toward the left from the cars on mostly 2nd class terrain with occasional 3rd class pitches. Views were blocked by good-weather clouds all around us. Glissaded down one of the two prominent snow couloirs west of our ascent route. Me being a chicken, I was trying to brake hard with my left hand, and when the ice axe spike caught either some ice or a rock under the snow, a searing pain shot through my shoulder. The shoulder has never been the same since, and I fear putting too much weight on it to this day.
Climbed with Skagit Alpine Club, great climb! Awesome views.
We've been looking at this peak for years. Made the trip at the last minute and enjoyed every minute. Great views.
With Fred and Tanya (age 10). Fun day with great views.
