El Diente South Slopes route ADDED

Postby BillMiddlebrook » Sat Jul 17, 2010 4:13 pm

I just added the El Diente's South Slopes route to the 14ers.com Online Guidebook.

Wilson Group Routes

When I have more time I'll make some notes on there about when it may be easier to use this route over the North Slopes snow route.

Nice! This is the way we climbed it on June 26th. I know this will be helpful to a lot of people. Good job once again Bill!

Accurate description! :)

I don’t think we’re on Massive anymore Toto!

This was a great addition to make that group more complete. Thanks

Thanks, guys!
The route has some loose rock but I think it can be safer than taking a dry North Slopes route. Plus the scenery is great.
