I went up the northeast face of Mount Black Prince last Sunday (12 AUG 2007). This is the same face that Antri Zhu and his friend, Mark, climbed earlier in July. I think the Nugara's climbed up further to the south when they did this peak 2 years ago. Although I managed to do this without a rope, it's really pushing it to call this a scramble, but if you thought Mount Smuts or Fisher Peak was tame, then I would recommend this one!

Very nice trip report and pictures Sonny. That's an impressive climb without ropes.

Funny that you mention the difficulty of Warspite, was up there yesterday with Vern and Scott Berry and in dry conditions, as it is right now, I wouldn't even rate it difficult at all. After the col there is one step with some exposure but that's it. We didn't do the traverse to Invincible because I wasn't feeling to good (nasty stomach pain) and still want to go out tomorrow.

But the lake (or what's left of it) certainly stinks and when we were having a break in the valley above the cascades there were multiple parties looking for a lake. So that must be the "third" lake on the map then?

You`re no longer a scrambler, Sonny. You are a free climber! It simply blows my mind what you have climbed without the rope. Congrats!

nice work Sonny, I agree with Raff, you are now a climber. A very good one at that.
