Comments: I was there a few weeks ago. We had just had a big dump of snow, so our approach was hilariously slow. Armpit-deep wallowing to the start of the ice. If you have any more info to add for different conditions, that would be great.

Comments: On a short daylight day (early Jan), we did it like this:
Start hiking 4:45, bushwhacked through deep snow and got to base at 7.
Topped out the ice 10am. Great conditions above and we were at the ridge at noon. Crossing the knife edge was fun and easy until the last bit, Chimney Peak, which we ended up rapping down into the snow saddle to Pamola Peak. Started hiking down Dudley trail around 3, back at the cabin 5:30.

Awesome route, all sections really fun (except the downscramble on Dudley tr... more >>

Comments: Russell, do you have any more details for this wall?

I think we did a 6c+, Swiss on The Storm, and some other 6a+ to 6b+ routes, but don't remember the names. Fun climbing.

Comments: We summited via a 6a face climb after traversing around following the cave pitch. Rapped straight (ish) down and found 60 m rope to be somehow just short on several of our raps... so be careful!

Comments: We tried the ski lift on one of our trips, too much scrambling around with heavy packs for us. Didn't help the wind was blasting, where we would have been protected in the very pleasant forest walk. For us the time was nearly identical.

kknight maybe already found out, no need for crampons or axes here in the normal climbing season.

Also, we found a handful of single-pitch sport climbs behind Aguja Frey, 5+ to 6c.

Comments: Awesome route. Linked p 5-6 as described here with no great difficulty, such a fun arete!

Recommended descent... couldn't tell you. Probably down the cara banana face. My partner convinced me we should try to rap the route (with some down climbing easy sections). It worked... sort of... don't do it!

Comments: Rap anchor at top of P2 was completely encased in ice, and covered in snow, when we were there recently. Tried to not ding the rings too much as I chipped them out...

70 m rope gets you all the way to the P1 tree

Comments: The first moves of P2 I protected with a micronut... not R exactly, but you should be solid on 5.6 to be comfortable here. You would be jumping down maybe 5 ft to the ledge if you blow it.

Comments: I found no fixed anchor after p1 -- ended up just going to GT ledge and rapping down over Strictly.
