Route Climbed: Range trail from UWJ Date Climbed: Oct 11, 2003
Conditions warmer than expected, 70s and sunny. After a nice rest on UWJ, was ready to hit Armstrong. Rugged hike down UWJ and then back up Armstrong. Nice views from the top, more open than the previous two peaks.
Route Climbed: Range Trail, from Wedge trail in AMR (Ausable Club) Date Climbed: 5/10/03
Combined this early season hike with UWJ and Gothics. Still had deep snow below summits, but weather was perfect (low 60's and sunny). In fact snowpack left only 5-7 feet of the 20 foot ladder on the moutains east side visable.
Nice view west from the small summit ledge. This mountain is steep when approached from the east (Upper Wolf Jaw).
