 Details

Conditions:
Completely dry, no snow on route. All rap anchors in good shape, but always inspect before rapping. Our group of three soloed all of the cruxes. We downclimbed the summit chimney and then made three raps using a 60m rope. One area of avalanche debris from two slides in Noname Basin. Cross over to right (south) side of creek and continue until past debris then cross back to left (north) side of creek.

Itinerary:
Day 1 - Hiked in from Purgatory and camped at Noname Basin turnoff.
Day 2 - Hiked up Noname Basin and camped at 11,800, met my train-riding partners here.
Day 3 - Summited and hiked back down Noname Basin to camp at turnoff.
Day 4 - Hiked out to Purgatory and drove home.

Thank you! It's a cool mountain, one tough mofo to get to, but awesome. Definitely my favorite peak. Congrats to you as well for getting Jupiter, Pigeon and Turret this past weekend.

Did you upclimb the choked summit chimney, or did you take the earlier bypass up from the south-face ledge? Thanks in advance.

We did not see the bypass on the way up. I noticed it on the way down, but downclimbing the chimney as we had ascended seemed easy. We stemmed it up and down, feet on one side and hands/back/butt on the other. A few scoots and you are up or down past the rock blocking easy passage. We did have to take our packs off, but they were easily handed up and down from one person to another. Have fun, it's a fantastic peak!
