Sporadic snow past Mehrten Meadow. The final 500 feet had about 1 foot of snow. Fantastic views of the Great Western Divide on a clear day.

Took the standard trail from Wolverton. My friend's GPS registered around 8 miles each way. I loved the scenery at the top. Decided that the roundtrip to "Winter Alta" seemed way longer than we wanted to bother with.

We hit this one NewYork style.There was much virgin snow all over so we had to blaze our own path to the summit.After reaching the wrong peak we had to double back and reclimb making our day an 8000ft day with over 18 miles of hiking.According to the logbook,we were the first there in almost a months time.It was a great hike and an exceptional summit

Snowcamped at Pear Lake. Beautiful day, good snow conditions. Short but fun third class scrambling in crampons.

Also did it in Jan 2007 via Pear Lake, and Dec 2004 via Tharpe Rock gully.

Summited as part of an overnight backcountry ski/snowboard trip. There's a sweet 3-person snow cave at 36.60315N, 118.66838W. Might last until the next storm.

Fun day and still the highest peak I've climbed, thus I post. Compelled to shatter that record this year, barring unforeseen circumstances!

missymtngirlFirst 11,000 foot peak!...yeah...yeah....yeah

missymtngirl

After our road trip we were on a high (or at least I was), and we decided to up the ante by climbing our first 11,000 ft peak. We were greeted by the usual suspects...those cute, furry, somewhat annoying marmots.

Date Climbed: Jul 5, 2008

Our trail led us up to through Panther Pass and then around Tharps Rock to the summit. We continued down from Alta Peak to Pear Lake, Aster Lake, Emerald Lake, Heather Lake, the Watchtower, and then down to Wolverton which is where we parked. The trip was between 15-17 miles with an elevation gain between 4000 and 5000 feet, and it took us about 11 hours to complete the loop trip.

Great way to start 2009 backpacking and summit the next day. Trail sometimes hard to follow from Panther Gap to camp at Mehrteh Meadow with the snow- and very enjoyable trip.

aknatnSo close to the top, yet so far
Date Climbed: May 21, 2009
This was our first attempt this season and the snow proved to stop us just short of the summit. Beautiful views this time of the year and well worth it, just be ready for some slushy snow and slippery spots on the way. We were approx. 528 feet from the summit but the snow was too thin and we opted to stop rather than risking falling through a weak spot.
