Description:

This is an excellent climb with two pitches of 5.8, a couple of 5.7 and a lot of exposed 4th class ridge traversing at the top. It's kinda long (10 pitches) but it should go quickly.

5 out of 5 stars Epic

First time backpacking in 3 years. Almost gave up at Long Lake. Wasn't ready for the altitude and carrying 35lbs. Endless tallus! Camped at Treasure lake via the firsherman's trail off Long Lake. Epic climb. Awkward in a number of places. Found it to be a sustained 5.8 if measured by the hardest move on the pitch rather than the easiest move on the pitch. Crux wasn't too bad. Just requires balance and wingspan. 3 hour descent back to camp. It was nice to spread it over 3 days.

5 out of 5 stars Perfect weather day

Burly approach and descent but a simply phenomenal summit. Laine led p1, I led p2 (accidentally went up some sustained and effortful 5.9 var), simul'd p3-4, I led p5, we soloed p6 to the end.
