Seems like everyone does the top half slightly differently. Here's what we did, which ties in with Charles Vernon's route description. On pitch 6 we did a rising rightwards traverse past a loose block and a piton, then continued traversing to a comfortable belay at the base of a right-facing corner.

Comments: Added a photo showing pitch 6. This is a lot steeper and more sustained than the pitches lower down. When we climbed this (April 2014), there was no sign of anyone having done this pitch in a long time. It ends at a large, rubble-strewn ledge. We rappelled the pitch and downclimbed to get back to the rap point at the top of pitch 4 (see comments from 2013). According to Gillett's book, it's possible to continue along the SE ridge, but that looked like it would be a long way and would involve mor... more >>

Comments: Do not - repeat, not - do as we did and attempt this in late August. The top of couloir had melted out, and we had to climb up loose, microwave-sized blocks perched on 50 degree mud. It might be a nice climb earlier in the summer.

Comments: Went back and completed the traverse over 3 days from Aug 2-4, 2013.

- There are at least two different ways to get from Owen to Gunsight Notch. (i) Follow Rolando's description and cross to the W side of Owen's S ridge at the first notch S of the summit, or (ii) stay on the E side of the ridge for a couple of hundred feet, then cross to the W side at a notch further south. Either way there's much exposed down-climbing and for most people a couple of rappels. Alternative (i) has more loose rock... more >>
