Blitzen Ridge & Y Couloir  Sucess!

8/30/08 - Noobs on Blitzen Ridge. Ridiculously long day caused mostly by rope management issues... first time trying to use doubles!

6/25/2016 - Left Branch of the infamous Y Couloir. Massive runnels made for some interesting and very steep climbing. A few low 5th class rock moves required at the 12,700 ft constriction. Cornice up top was blunted and nonthreatening.

Breathtaking  Sucess!

One of the greatest climbing experiences I've ever had in RMNP. Lots of solitude, and a whole lot of fun class 2. Summit views stretched for miles and miles.

Mount Ypsilon  Sucess!

Enjoyed the solitude and peace on this hike. I did not see another human. The route was direct and open. The weather was exceptional. A joyous day.

Chapin Pass  Sucess!

Long ridge all the way to Flatiron. Was gonna hit Confluence & Nutcracker but was running short on time. Desolation Peaks really chocked my time down. Great day!!!

Up Donner's Ridge  Sucess!

Beautiful day without a cloud in the sky! Gained the ridge at the start and a fun climb up. Had to drop down ~200 ft about a 1/3 of the way up to avoid some technical climbing, but it appears you can make this ridge as difficult as you want. Overall, some easy 4th class moves with some 3rd class scrambling.
