breauxtrahnSE route an ill scramble!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 12, 2010

This is one of the most beautiful places and most fun scrambles I've ever been to, but the season was not great, very buggy. A huge buttress fell off the ridge above the Lewis Glacier moraine that sounded like a plane overhead, then more fell twice again that day. Accidently took the loop the wrong way and had to go all the way over Maple Pass, down the Heather Pass. A little extra elevation, but very pretty meadows up there.

This is another climb that I thoroughly enjoyed even though it was an less popular route on a less popular peak. The views were great, the climbing varied and not too tough. Good stuff.

It was supposed to be a 5 day Labor Day weekend with the usual partner and two friends from Arizona. Managed to sneak in during the only 24 hours of dry weather the whole weekend.

I don't know about the "permanent snowfield" that Beckey talks about though.

Hung out on the summit listening to Jack Johnson for a half hour waiting for some friends. Great day!

Nice bivy at lake and then up airy ridge on good solid rock. Lot of exposure makes this a challenge. Fantastic climb with Norman.

My favorite "easy" climb this year. Best views for the effort around!

Mazamas climb. Camped at Wing Lake. The stretch to the top is easier than it seemed from below, and it is way fun. There are some loose rock areas, and a few spots of exposure near the summit, but really a fun ascent to do.

This was my dog's first real mountain trip. She made it 20 feet from the summit and I continued up to the top. Whimpers brought me back to the false summit after a few shots. The rock wasn't bad and there was plenty of snow. We had the upper mountain to ourselves. Heaven.

A planned 2 day trip turned into 3. Carried too much gear, climbed too slow. Didn't want to negotiate the boulder field in the dark and miss the trail so we stayed one more night.

Camped at Heather Pass, climbed Black and continued on to Corteo although it was not easy getting back to the pass. The east face of Corteo is quite treacherous, especially without a rope. NOT recommended!

Nice day on decent climb and scramble finish. Getting from upper snow slope to the ridge seemed to be the crux, as terrain was very loose and crumbly. Excellent times camping out at the lake below.

Stayed on scree to right of snowfield to notch. Snowfield had large moat making getting on or off too difficult. Followed many cairns on the ridge and in gully to below false summit. Traversed eastward and climbed a 40' class 3 gulley to summit. Nice day until smoke from fire in Stehekin put a lid on the viewed. Fun climb!

Hiked into the lake with Brian, read about it in his trip report and all the bears we saw. I hurt my knee on the boulderfield and could not climb to the summit the next day. Beautiful camping place.

Climbed today as an overnight with my girlfriend, the south ridge. Crampons and ice axe made the trip up the chute easier. Wing lake was still half frozen. Also saw bear tracks in the snow!

Screw skis or snowshoes, we post-holed! Tons of snow. Bear tracks (mama and cub). Awesome ascent up standard route. Crampons and axe made ascent more pleasant. My first time ever in crampons!

A fun solo. Saw a small group coming off as I pulled onto the summit. Had the summit to myself - headed down as a couple were heading up. Really smokey sky. The scree slope to the ridge looked intimidating from a distance. Was easy - stayed to the right on more solid rock. Stayed right going up the chutes when the opportunity presented itself. Wound up right below the easy scramble to the top. Holds weren't positive but there were plenty plus good feet.

Hiked up Saturday to find Blondie, Radek and Shirley's dog at a campsite on Wing Lake. I knew then that they must have climbed that day already. Saw them along with Radek's brother and Haydar descending shortly after. Met Tazz and her friends Dicey and Mark(?) as well.

Stove had issues that night so dinner for Anette and I was cold chicken from a can and tepid Spanish rice. Mmm mmmm good! Annie's knee bothered her on Sunday so I started out solo at 7 am. The route is straightforward if you stick to the ridge and don't go left into the looser gully from the saddle. The last 15 feet or so are 4th or low 5th class but not super exposed. Amazing views of glaciers and peaks. Was back down at camp before 10:30 and the long hike out.

Oh yeah, did I mention we got off trail on the right side of Lewis Lake and bushwhacked into not one, not two but 5 black bears? (2 moms and 3 cubs) Had to yell at the last two so they weren't surprised by us. Oh yes, the blueberries aren't just for climbers anymore.

Climbed with Shirley, Radek and his brother Tom as a day trip. Somehow I thought the cimbing was on good rock along a knife edge but was quite surprised to find out that the ridge was very loose and ledgy instead. Great views despite the haze from wildfires. The highlight of the trip (besides the spontaneous SP get together) was the mermaid at Lewis Lake!

Nice to meet all the SP folks at wing lake in the evening hours. Hope your hike out wasn't too bad!
