Packed in for 2 nights and hiked Irving Hale, Cooper, Marten, Martenette, Hiamovi Mountain and Hiamovi Tower. Very cool area!

For Cooper we went up from the divide side and down toward Marten.

Climbed a 5th class route up the south buttress. Our route is right of Roach's 4th class south buttress route.

Great 2 day trip to the area. Climbed Cooper, Marten and Martenette the first day and then hiked over to the S side of Thunderbolt to camp. The next morning I climbed Thunderbolt and Blackfoot. Only 6 more summits to go in the IPW.

Date Climbed: Sep 25, 2005


9/25/05 - Climbed Marten Peak from camp near Lower Stone Lake and then traversed to Cooper (climbed Cooper's SW Ridge). Descended Cooper's North Ridge. Easy scrambling. Would like to go back to climb the South Buttress from Gourd Lake.

5/28/12 - South Buttress from Gourd Lake this time. Camped at the lake and did loop over Cooper, Marten & Martenette the next morning.

That Gourd Lake area really impressed me despite having a lot of experience in the IPW and despite the crappy weather we endured. The class four moves were very exposed and very commiting. That was about my comfort level without a rope. Afterwords we termed the route "hang your ass out over a thousand feet ridge."

My wife Blynn and I followed Gerry Roach's Southwest Ridge route with a few variations, due to poor route finding that led to some exposed scrambling. It was a beautiful day and we enjoyed complete solitude and incredible views from the top.

Desolation and solitude. Cooper Peak is deffinately worthwhile for thos wanting something a little different. This corner of the Indian Peaks remains free of the hordes that crowd the rest of the wilderness. Dogs Sopris and Raymond accompanied me on my ascent.
