After a great day of multipitch rock climbing at Lumpy Ridge, we snuck in a (reasonably) dry trip up and down Hallett Peak, via the classic Culp-Bossier route. The remainder of the week had us bivied at a high perch in Glacier Gorge, from which we climbed the 5.6 North Ridge of Spearhead, and completed an exciting traverse from Arrowhead to McHenry’s Peak.
It was my first time on this exposed traverse, and it’s got a bit of it all; some 5th class rock, lots of exposed scrambling, great summits, and killer views of Long’s Peak and Glacier Gorge. Becca was a great participant for this rigorous course. It takes plenty of motivation for back-to-back alpine starts, but the payoff is definitely worth it. Thanks to Becca, Chris, and Dave for a fantastic week out and about. We hope to see you back real soon!
