a low snow year made the south side of this peak accessible. Climbed up the southwest ridge. One sharp spot made me wish I had brought my ice axe. I came down the north side which was much more winter like and came across avalanche debris and mining ruins. Scenic little peak with some good views of the Pioneers and Soldier Mountains.
Route Climbed: North Face/South Ridge Date Climbed: November12th/05
I was confused on the approach due to an early morning snowstorm and made a wrong and early turn that lead me up the north face. This involved the most strenuous 4 hours of my life postholling up to my waist through a very stubborn crust.
I descended down the South Ridge which was a little better. Overall, this is a good hike close to town if you want total wilderness to yourself.
