Trip: golden horn - northeast arete - northeast arete


Date: 9/6/2011


Trip Report:

after a fine day on tower mountain, mr. asslunger and i were looking for some more quality stone in the snowy lakes vicinity. a slightly later start, a short rap, some more cramponing and quite a bit of unstable scree led us to the ne arete of golden horn. lunger pulled the short straw all day and was rewarded with some choice pitches. he pulled some hard and loose moves on the second pitch when i suggested he explore the left, off-route, side of the arete. unfortunately, he had no one to blame on the sixth pitch. we found seven pitches (a few short-ish ones for risk management) of impressive climbing. one of the highlights of the day was climbing past the cannon hole along the ridge and being able to see through it to the mid-pillar belay on tower mt. just as we were able to see through the pillar to the cannon hole. lunger may post some pictures when he has time.


if you like ice climbing, you will enjoy this route. respect to mr. skoog and mr. walseth.
