JonWWest Ridge  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Mar 12, 2011


David Cooper recommends snowshoes for a winter ascent, and so do I. Postholing to hips on the approach and descent provided a nice workout.

Climbed Pacific and Atlantic starting from the Mohawk Lakes trailhead and climbing the loose crap of a slope to Pacific Tarn.
Atlantic done first than the traverse to Pacific.
BTW...Do NOT do that slope in the summer. Do the east ridge instead

Traversed from Pacific to Atlantic and descended the West Ridge. Not quite enough snow at this time of year for the cornices to form, but there were some good features and it was a beautiful scene.

Date Climbed: Sep 3, 2010


Climbed the West Ridge with Heath. Kelly and Kim made it nearly all the way. Lots of loose talus on 2 miserable slopes, other than that it was a fun class 2/3 scramble with some exposure. Parking way up the Mc Gulch road was a welcome surprise.

crzyjtUP: Atlantic Cooly DOWN: Ski of saddle b/w Atlantic/Pacific  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 4, 2009


Climbed Atlantis in good conditions. We started up w/o crampons as the snow was rather soft and punch, even at 8am, but the shaded areas in the couloir were pretty firm, so we found a safe rest spot in the chute to put the crampons on. Skinned from the top of the couloir to the summit and skied off the summit down through the saddle with Pacific. Snow is getting soft early and not completely freezing overnight.

Climbed W ridge with MikeyB. Dropped skis and snowshoes at base of ridge. Lots of new snow made for tough plodding, but not horrendous. Above 13k had a bit of bitter wind kicking. Finally got all the summits in this gulch and it was my first sunny/clear day up there. 7hrs.

Woodie Hopper

Climbed from Pacific, third peak today (Crystal-Pacific-Atlantic) from Mayflower Gulch. Talus slope is gentler than Pacific's. Funny seeing all the people on top of Quandry on a Monday, and hardly anyone else around around these peaks today. I was tempted to descend from the West ridge because I thought I was close enough to the Boston mine to avoid the bad scree, talus and cliffs- boy was I wrong! I guess I just wanted to check it out first-hand ;) The descent sucked and wasn't very safe. Don't be fooled and stick to the West ridge on the way down as long as you can.

(Almost) complete solitude on a perfect below zero Easter day. Still winter on this peak in April.

The calendar says spring, but mother nature was still talking winter. A little blustery and the views were white in every direction, but a fun snow ridge nonetheless.

It was a long day but worth it. The ridge was very interesting with perfect snow conditions. Some relatively narrow snow ridges and a big wave shaped cornice livened things up.

Great route with a very Alpine feel to it. The 50 mph sustained winds made the trip that much more fun!
