Skied the couloir after climbing it, summited in high winds under blue skies. What a day!!

Route Climbed: exited snow couloir early and climbed NE ridge Date Climbed: late July 2003  Sucess!

We planned on climbing just the NE ridge, but when we saw the mountain, we decided some added exploration would be in order. The result was beginning up the snow couloir and then exiting near the bottom (since we didn't have the right gear to finish) and heading for the NE ridge. The sky was clear in the morning all the way through the day until after we had summited and got down off the mountain. On our way out to the trailhead, though, a storm quickly moved in and got us soaked-- the typical added thrill in the Beartooths.

Cold and windy, with blowing snow and rain. Typical August day in the Beartooths.

Route Climbed: NE Ridge Date Climbed: August 2004  Sucess!

After being frozen off of Pensive Tower (on the west face of Silver Run Peak), we decided to climb something else, and this was an excellent consolation prize. Lots of snow and wet boulders made for a rough go up the final headwall, but the top was gorgeous and rewarding.



It's a long car-to-car trip, but you sure move faster when you're not carrying all that extra stuff...

Route Climbed: NE Ridge Route Date Climbed: August 15th, 2004  Sucess!

Climbed in the morning on our way from Sundance Lake to Second Rock Lake. The scramble directly south of Mount Lockhart to Second Rock Lake was a bear with a 9 day-pack!



There are some fun exposed variations on the NE route that we enjoyed.
