    Sabre Ridge from the West

    An unbelievable blade of granite that ascends to an unnamed peak on the Kings-Kaweah Divide.

    You probably haven’t heard of the Sabre Ridge, because it has been called that for only a short while. Reported to have been first climbed in 2008, it goes to show that there is still a lot for climbers to discover about the Sierra. It is 16 miles in from the nearest trailhead so it is no roadside attraction. We let mules haul the heavy gear and food and we enjoy a spectacular day hike with hydration packs to idyllic Tamarack Lake, where guides and camp staff prepare an appetizer of freshly caught trout while setting up our fully-stocked, deluxe rock climbing basecamp. This itinerary allows 3 climbing days and a relaxation day. The gem of the area is the Sabre Ridge (III, 5.7), an unbelievable blade of granite that ascends to an unnamed peak on the Kings-Kaweah Divide, perhaps of equal or better quality than the famous North ridge of the Piz Badile on the Swiss-Italian border. Think of Matthes Crest, but longer, with more relief on both sides, and with more climbing up than horizontally or down. The Prism is another enticing feature immediately adjacent to the Sabre with featured, orange granite like Charlotte Dome that has yielded excellent 10-13 pitch routes at and beyond 5.9 in difficulty. Mt. Stewart has multiple routes on its North face on outstanding alpine granite with seemingly unlimited hand and finger cracks. Routes ranging from from 5.6 to 5.10. Kind of crazy that you have never been there, eh? Let’s go!
