Note the weather was up and down, Weeks 1 and 2 were quite rainy but we still managed to get out climbing on most days. Weeks 3 6 enjoyed exceptional weather. The climbs were of a more technical variety than the previous two GMC's in the Rockies . The base camp was centrally located and the approaches were very short, good-bye to the slogs. Nearly all of the climbs were involved, with Typee being the only true walk-up. Escalade was the favorite of the rock jocks and the Redburn-White Jacket Proteus traverse is an exceptional climb. Moby Dick was the camp favorite. With so much good climbing in close proximity to the base camp, the distant summits of Scylla, Outrigger and Obstacle were left unchallenged.
If anybody is still interested in purchasing a 2005 Moby Dick t-shirt, I still have some XL's and some S's left.
Drop me a line if you would like anymore specific information about the Moby Dick climbing routes.
