Solo Solo ascent by: curtis_g on 2011-06-06 (View Climbing Log)

5 out of 5 stars Solo winter conditions.

Didn't touch any rock above 9k feet. Everything on the Jeff-Park glacier was enjoyable and gorgeous.

Summit ridge and block was completely ice and snow encrusted. Very fragile ice and brittle snow to gain the summit. Crossing the north and summit ridge and the summit block itself included multiple +40ft sections of extremely exposed snow/ice climbing with over 400ft of exposure.

Virgin conditions, took a lot of work to hack down to anything blue. Mushroom features were snow covered and extremely difficult to surmount due to the snow coverage.

4 out of 5 stars Lots of fun climbing

Belayed climbing at bulge. Shrund was passable with mixed climbing on climbers left. Move fast! Lots of rock fall. Rock ridge (5.0) was fun and exposed. Summit block was solid. 12 hrs, camp to camp (Jeff Park).

Took a straight route up the glacier, over the bergshrund at a steep bulge. Used a few screws to protect that part. Good time climbing with my brother.
