Casey BatesTricky Scramblin'  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 20, 2009

Read the post below from 'hereandthere'. There are many false summits and the true summit is really hard to find. Be prepared to keep traversing east from the last saddle before the true scrambling starts a bit further than you might think. Beware of loose rocks and exposure. It is a good thing that this mountain does not get a whole lot of traffic because lots of rockfall could mean sketchy conditions on a crowded day.

Climbing from Windy pass is a great route. Beautiful views in an amazing area.

Hereandthere was a defunct account I had. I recently recovered access to it and moved the climbing logs over. I have copied the same info above on my new accounts climber log entry.

Just an fyi for everyone as the "post below" will be disappearing soon.

dysctiLong and fun day hike in July  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 8, 2006


Left the house at 5:20am and began hiking on 8 Mile Trail 3 hours later. I took off across the slopes before reaching Windy Pass and gained the ridge at the final notch before the summit push. I didn't traverse far enough before ascending the gullies and went up to a couple false summits before finally reaching the real one at 1:15pm. It was bug city up there, counted ~20 ladybugs on the top rock and about twice as many flies. My dad made it to the last highpoint on the west ridge before running out of steam and turning around. This was probably the toughest scramble I've done to date (not really saying much). It was a great trip and a nice dayhike if you keep a fairly quick, steady pace.

Reached summit at 3:50. Would have been a perfect day were it not for smoke from a fire in the Ingall's Creek area. When we reached the summit, the view of Stuart, Colchuck, & the Enchantments area was completely obscured by smoke. Other than that, the weather was perfect.

Had to hike the last bit from Little 8 Mile in pitch darkness...bad timing on our part.

Duane and I took our boys backpacking to Lake Caroline, then climbed from the camp. All but one of the boys reached the summit with us on a glorious September day.
