Paddy-Go-North and Sherpani Peak are next-door neighbors to the north of Paddy-Go-Easy Pass.
American Border Peak was on my list of peaks to climb last fall. But the weather wouldn’t cooperate.
Unable to generate interest in finding a partner, Big Kangaroo remained on the backburner until now.
This trip was our sixth time starting from Slate Pass. We were all too familiar with the descent approach.
Hozomeen Mountain South Peak is the evil twin of the double-summitted mountain.
Tricouni Peak was going to be our season opener over Memorial Day weekend.
Mount Olympus didn’t enter my mind until this summer, but it’s quite famous among mountaineers.
