Route: South ridge

Info: Missed the turnoff to the Tabor lake, so instead of backtracking, ascended the rubble gully on the East face (C3) to South ridge. After the look at the loose talus on the standard route, decided to take the South ridge to the saddle with Tellurium. The fist tower is bypassed on the left at very exposed C4, but the rest of the towers can be comfortably bypassed to the right at C3-C4. Pretty good rock quality overall. Ridge maybe better going the opposite way, as you upclimb the obstacles. Downclimb into the saddle was a but tricky at C4. Was thinking to continue on the ridge, but bailing off the saddle and taking the grassy slope up Tellurium goes faster. Also had a water refill in the basin.

Info: Tabor Peak tip sheet: 1. There is a way across Lincoln Creek w/o getting wet or removing your boots. Instead of starting down the trail to cross the creek @ the TH, walk back to Lincoln Creek Rd., turn R, walk for ~1/4 mile, then turn south and cross the grassy area between the road and the creek. There are two big logs acting as a bridge over the water. There is a trail in the willows back to the main trail after crossing. 2. Turn off to go up to Tabor Lake/Tabor Peak is @ 11,600'. Small cairns on trail mark it. 3. The scree gully up to the ridge is one of the worst I've encountered. Pick your path of least suck. 4. The ridge line to the summit is airy and can be spicy. You can walk most of it, but you are perched high on a narrow band of rock, requiring some scrambling.
