North Face of Cloudripper in the Sierras. My route followed the the prominent snow gully which was steep neve, then up and left on a class 3 rock scramble to summit. This peak seems to be largely ignored in favor of its more famous neighbors but provides a fantastic view and some fun climbing (2011-06-07). Photo by Robert Garneau.
