Basic Alpine Climb - Ingalls Peak/South Ridge

A successful one day fall climb.

  • Road suitable for all vehicles
  • The route was completely melted out and the rock was cool but no numb fingers.

We started at 5:00 am and encountered a little moisture from the lake to the start.  The wind dried things out during the first pitch and the weather cleared enough for the rest of the climb.  Pretty chilly at the top anchor!  A double rope rap from there to the deck at the second slung rock belay spot with 2 - 60m ropes, then scrambled down to the first slung rock to rap down to the start with a 70m rope.  If you're doing single rope raps, it helps to have a 70m for the first and third pitches.  No snow on the entire approach.  The 6 of us returned to the TH at 8:00 pm, just before dark!
