Paiute to Algonquin IPW

Postby Brian C » Wed Feb 20, 2013 12:57 pm

Anybody done this? It looks nasty from the side profile and I can't find any info. I'll attach a photo and a map. Any info would be awesome.

Thanks!

Brian

North Ridge of Paiute. Looks rugged.

Yowsa! Looks like it could be quite hard.

There was a thread on this a while back that John Prater posted some very useful info and photos from this traverse. Looks interesting but definitely doable.

Haven't done it, but if you want some pics of Paiute from Algonquin, I have some in my TR from last summer. I probably have more. Send a PM with your e-mail if you want them.

Another spicy traverse that I'm curious about back there is Blackfoot-Paiute. That would make one heck of a cirque if you could pull both of those off in one push.

EDIT... Sorry, my response wasn't needed with the link to the thread with Prater's account of the route.

Ugg 5.6-5.7 That puts a minor crimp into that traverse!

Brian, I'd love to do this this summer. Keep me in mind should you need a partner.
