"East Partner Peak"  
Condition Updates  
Route: South Ridge
Posted On: 2020-10-03, By: supranihilest
Info: A rather convoluted route. We took the Pitkin Trail until just shy of Pitkin Lake. From there we headed east up a shallow rib to a steep grass and dirt gully. The ridge then turned north and we had some minor scrambling along the way to a giant block on the ridge. The block is Class 4 to the top via a couple of chimneys, but we ended up down climbing and traversing around the block to the east on steep, loose junk since we couldn't see an end to the difficult scrambling from the top. This sidehilling continued until the summit block, where we went up sets of slabby dihedrals. The feet were generally pretty junky and loose. The dihedrals funneled to the summit. The summit block was a couple hundred feet of sustained Class 3 with an occasional Class 4 move. We returned the way we came instead of doing the Partners Traverse.

Info: Pitkin lake trail completely dry, in fact the meadows look like August more than anything. Ridges and approaches to E. Partner (and from the looks of it W. Partner as well) dry and only isolated patches of snow. Amazing place.
