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: This is highly foreshortened. Photo was taken at 8,000'; 1st col is 9,000', Grey Rock is 9,700'. Summit is out of sight and another 1,600' above Grey Rock.

Comments: Excellent route. We climbed this in May 2014.

- Snow levels were low this year and we had to climb rock in a couple of places we weren't expecting, e.g. above the Thin Man Squeeze and getting up to the notch before the 2nd col.

- We found the last 500' of 50-55 degree slopes below the summit to be mostly ice with minimal snow cover. Don't skimp on ice-screws unless you're comfortable soloing that kind of terrain.

- Don't underestimate the descent. The first part is a long descending traverse... more >>

Comments: If you're starting at Sandbeach Lake trailhead, don't go all the way to Sandbeach Lake. Stay on the trail for about 2/3 mile past the Hunter's Creek crossing, then head NNW through open forest for about 1/2 mile. If you do it right, you'll rejoin Hunter's Creek just below treeline. This is shorter than going all the way to Sandbeach Lake but avoids dense forest lower down in Hunter's Creek.
