North America, United States, California, Sierra Nevada, Charlotte Dome, Southwest Arête

Charlotte Dome, Southwest Arête. Dave Lomba and I climbed 11 pitches of choice high-country granite along this narrow ridge. We skied over Kearsarge Pass in early May and camped near Bullfrog Lake. The climb was all free, clean, and took most of a day. We began climbing in the early afternoon, but didn’t return to camp until one A.M. NCCS IV, F9.
