Palisades Traverse

Palisade Traverse Sierra Nevada  Climber

Price per person


Palisade Traverse 5.7 – 5.9

Thunderbolt Peak, Starlight, North Palisade, Polemonium, and Mt Sill

The Palisade Traverse is perhaps is a bucket list climb for all Sierra alpine climbers.  The route climbs 5 of California 14,000 ft peaks, Thunderbolt, Starlight, North Palisade, Polemonium, and Mt Sill in one single push. A climb is a great option for people who are attempting to climb all of the California 14ers.  Summiting all of the peaks in one climb mitigates repeated efforts at doing the approach into the Palisade Group.  A successful climb of the Traverse is a great climatic way to end one’s quest to climb all 15 of the California 14ers.
