Trip: Dome Peak and Spire Point - Standard and South Face

Date: 9/3/2012

Trip Report:
On August 31st Adam Walker, Ryan Hoover, Josh Lewis, Matt Lemke and myself set off to climb Dome Peak, with Sinister and Spire Point as possible add-ons. After biking up to the Downey Creek campground Friday evening, we hiked to a bivy spot at about 6400 ft on Itwoot ridge on Saturday and climbed Dome Peak on Sunday. We had intended to traverse the Chickamin glacier and climb the east ridge of Sinister but large bergschrunds on the Chickamin-Dome col made this infeasible for a single day.



On Monday four of us attempted Spire Point, Matt and Josh by the standard route and myself and Ryan by the south face. We found the route to be much as Beckey describes it, five pitches of excellent rock, two of which were quite short and little more than class 4. Some of the 5.6 moves were interesting with mountaineering boots.

I've heard it will be open next year. on the way back we passed a road grader clearing brush and there were four or five forest service vehicles parked near the Downey Creek bridge.
