[TR] Mt Harvey - North Ramp 12/4/2011

Recommended Posts

Trip: Mt Harvey - North Ramp

 

Date: 12/4/2011

 

Trip Report:

After a failed attempt the weekend before my girlfriend and I finally found the north ramp in climbable condition.

 

Nov. 27th attempt. No WI, just WW

The route is definitely "in" now, but has very thin ice/mixed bulges on the lower half, with more snow and fat ice up top. Used the pickets lots, every ice screw, and 1 med nut, one #4 metolius.

Sustained 45 degree snow with short WI2 cruxes for added interest.

Great day, close to home, first climb of the season.

 

Get after it.

6 screws

super light rock rack

Descending the north ridge? Curious, why not go down the SW ridge - did you have snowshoes left at the base or something?

They were. I really butchered the TR, its the first one i've put up on here, and had limited time to do it. I've done my best to fix it up now.
