2014-08-29  Black gully  Climbed Teakettle this morning. The recent storm left a spattering of snow above 12k - maybe 1". The crux of the day was down climbing from Coffepot to the base of the black gully, only because that entire section contained firm snow and occasional ice on the rocks. We used micro spikes, and I wouldn‘t have done it without them. Not enough snow for more serious traction. I imagine most of the snow will be gone if it stays sunny for a couple days. Considering I scanned a few trip reports looking for gear references, here is what we used: 30m rope, one 0.5 Camalot with shoulder sling for extension (perfect placement about half way up), two double length runners to sling the natural at the summit. ngoodnight   2014-08-29  0

2012-08-12  Southeast ridge  Teakettle and coffee pot. Total time of about 7 hours with two experienced partners. Bring your biggest cam ( singular) and a small rope,as well as harness and 30 feet of webbing, there are anchors on both summits but always be prepared to sling your own! No snow on the route at all and super fun classic climbs. Teakettle is an amazing peak that you should do. Scree central jaquetcj   2012-08-14 4
