Pleasant, Echo Rock, Observation Rock, Ptarmigan Ridge Prominence, Russell Glacier, Fay Peak, Knapsack Pass, Tolmie Peak, Martin Peak, August Peak, Virginia Peak, Berry Peak, Banshee Peak, Panhandle Gap, Whitman Crest, Meany Crest, plus a no view shot of Gobblers Knob at the end. Enjoy!

Very nice video.  I own a hard-to-find Ks Spire badge, but have failed twice on Tokaloo Spire--right at the start of that unprotected horizontal crack. What's the secret?

Well, I can’t tell you....looked daunting as I passed it but I just did Tokaloo rock.

It looks fun to give it a go (not solo) so if you're interested let me know....you can lead.

I'd try it again--but NPS might disapprove of my hardware choices.  Some things were just meant to be admired from afar, I guess. smile.gif

Here are a few pictures from our 2009 attempts. I haven't tried since.  I'll put up our successful K's Spire climb from 2011(?) later if you're interested.

Nice! So you tried the front side? That crack looks pretty solid.
