Myself, Katie and a Spencer met Pernell and Mel to climb Tritle Peak this morning. By Canyon standards the cost of entry for Tritle Peak is pretty low, as the diminutive peak sits a mere four-tenths of a mile off the north rim. Tritle is probably not a destination climb and peak, but we were all in the area and were happy to meet up for a lower key summit.

We got to Roosevelt a little before seven and left shortly after. Pernell arrived shortly after us and met us at the base of the climb. I was about three quarters of the way up the easy climb when they arrived. It took us 30 minutes to reach the base with a pretty leisurely pace. There is a maintained trail for the first two tenths of a mile and then a pretty easy to follow use trail the rest of the way. Traverse west of the first formation and then approach the base of the climb by contouring around Tritle to it’s north ridge.

The climbing was pretty easy and a little unspectacular, but the summit was great and we all had fun. When looking up from the base of the climb, take the obvious weaknesses to the notch, which involves a traverse along a loose edge. Then make the semi committing move into the notch and climb straight to the summit. I would recommend a single rack up to a number four, with maybe a couple extra sizes in the bd .3-.5 range. A single 60m will get you down. Rap off the large bush on the obvious ledge just below the summit block.

A great little summit and a great morning off the north rim with good friends. I could definitely see myself running up this one again in the future. It took us about three hours to get five people up the summit and back to the rim.
