relicApproach by ski  Sucess!

Climbed in Spring 2010, during a multi-day ski trip, as part of my continuing project to traverse and climb a number of Chelan and Entiat area peaks by using spring ski approaches. Got into area along ridgetops and mountainsides from Shady pass, great route for backcountry skiing, offering huge views over a mile down to Lake Chelan. Will post a coupla photos.

This peaks isn't too tough but I wouldn't really call it enjoyable either. Loose scree, boulders. Not on my list to repeat but it was OK to do once.

After 8 miles of approach I realized that I had left my glacier goggles in the car. Facing 2 more days of heavy sun and snow travel, I made Inuit style snow goggles out of available materials. Although these were not ideal, my eyes went unharmed. We knew it was going to be hot so we didn't bring a tent or use bivy sacks. Alexei and I climbed Cardinal and Saska on the second day. On the third day we climbed Emerald before heading out. Cardinal was my 24th Bulger peak.

Only thing more fun than going up about 1000' of scree is a trip to the dentist's office.

Great views from the saddle and lots of snow still around in August.

Careful Flanders, be very careful (check my profile). Of course, I'd have to agree. Congrat's to you and Brian on getting this fairly hard to get to peak.
