Comments: Cool - I did something very similar in 1985, stopped at Dry Lake and pitched camp, then climbed the North Face and came back to camp.

Comments: 98,000 feet? You must've been in the ISS flying over. ;-)

I camped in a nice clearing above Charlotte Creek - there was even a fire ring there.

Comments: Mean, mean start, but the first bolt can be clipped by stemming on the boulder behind.

Comments: A bit gravelly, and considering the total lack of traffic unlikely to clean up - but I enjoyed the route. By the time I'd soloed up to the start the first bolt was at my waist.

Comments: Adding a sport climb to an already existing boulder problem, which has been established for decades, is unacceptable.

Comments: ***WARNING***

May 24, 2017

Due to the heavy snowpack; alpine conditions currently exist on this trail - possession of an ice-axe, and familiarity with its use should be seriously considered. Crampons/spikes may also be necessary if you'll be out before dawn or after sunset.
