#22  Sucess!

This helluva basin provided me with one of the most stressful, mentally challenging days of the summer. Didn't expect the slopes to retain this much snow so with running shoes on I traversed the ridge all the way around and ended up on El Diente at sunset and "suicide climbed" down its North Slopes and safely made my way back to the Rock of Ages saddle and back to the car.

Southwest Ridge  Sucess!

Hiked up from our camp at Navajo Lake. I thought the ledges after the second saddle were the sketchiest part, but I might have picked a bad line. The down climb from the false summit and the summit pitch were straightforward and felt pretty secure. Fun peak with awesome views!

Via Rock of Ages  Sucess!

Climbed via Rock of Ages - Accessed saddle from side slope instead of hiking all the way through basin and climbing up scree. Back down the same way. Climbed with MoapaPk (Harlan)and one other.

Silver Pick  Sucess!

The weather was pretty terrible this weekend, even by San Juan standards, but we hiked through the drizzle and made this summit. Once again, Mt Wilson has a forcefield around it preventing my successful passage to its summit. I was impressed by the sustained scrambling / weaving / navigation on the higher reaches of Wilson Pk past the small saddle. I enjoyed this peak! With Mikey.

Scary weather!  Sucess!

From Rock of Ages TH, we had to wait one hour for weather to move out, it wasn't fun getting rained on at 13K but patience pays off.
Beautiful mountain.

12 hr day in the snow  Sucess!

Long day with big packs and ugly conditions. Had a mini melt down, but held it together... Marmots up there are vicious...
