Trip: The Brothers - South Peak, Route 1 variation

 

Date: 6/1/2008

 

Trip Report:

The slide path if you miss the fork in the creek

The hourglass and lunch rocks

We did the route 1 variation that is to the right of, and parallel to, the standard southeast couloir. The route is steeper and narrower, and is a good break from the sea of footsteps up the standard route.

The couloir ends with a single pitch of 5.4 to the summit

Gear Notes:

We used crampons early in the morning but by 9 am the snow was soft enough to kick steps without them.

 

Approach Notes:

Spotty snow up through the Valley of the Silent Men. Easy to post hole through the snow to the logs and debris below.
