Ascent Trip ReportGot to the N Peak without any difficulty. When I was here in January, the gully on the left (E) just north of the N Peak was completely snow-filled. This time, it was slightly melted out with a side moat that looked like it didn't go down all the way. We probably could have gone this way, using a tree as an anchor and using pickets along with way (and up the next gully). Instead, we took a route I had devised (but did not execute for lack of rope) last time I got to the N summit in January. The route is as follows:
10-15 feet below the N summit we traversed around the summit for about 100 ft, reaching a outcropping on the ridge again. From here slinged a pretty stable horn ~8 ft from the edge and rappelled down about 40 ft to the notch between the N and middle summits, from whence the middle summit is easily attainable. We left the rope here and continued on. On the way back, we both top-roped this section. Is is straight-forward class 4/low class 5, having just one move about 5.4.
Between the middle and S summits we took a small gully to the left and headed back up to the ridge in a moat. However, on the way back it was apparent that the face off the middle summit was class 3, so we easily scrambled up that.
I call it the "Hidden Ridge" route (as from the North summit the rappel route ridge is hidden by the next outcropping)
30m light rope for rapping and toproping, 20 ft webbing (or cordalette and double sling)
