10/1/05 - Standard loop over Crystal, Pacific & Atlantic from Mayflower Gulch.

5/30/09 - Intended on climbing Pacific's North Couloir from Mohawk Lakes but found unstable snow conditions. Posthole city and fresh point releases everywhere. Climbed Crystal's south slopes as a consolation prize. Planned on running ridge to Father Dyer and Helen but dark clouds at 9am put a stop to that too. A horrible day.

Climbed from Mayflower Gulch en route to Pacific and Atlantic. I had to bushwhack a little while crossing Mayflower Creek. I had all three to myself today. Great weather too.

Approached via the lovely Crystal Lake route. Summitted Crystal (three parties from three approaches converged on the summmit at almost the same time). Continued onto Father Dyer. Descended down north slope between Dyer and Helen into Mohawk Lakes. Slope was painfully steep, I don't recommend that return route. Partners: Carol & Deb.

Crystal clear day on Crystal. A lot more snow on the ridge than I anticipated, but it made for a fun climb.

Climbed Crystal with a couple of friends. Two of us continued on to Peak 10 and then 9, where the other guy picked us up. A great link-up if you have a friend with a Jeep who doesn't mind driving it.

With Eric Holle. Great views. A bit smokey from CA fires, could even smell it. Fun steep descent direct to lower lake. Beautiful day.

The first of three peaks for the day. Started from Mayflower Gulch. Combining these three peaks makes for a great tour. Still a fair amount of snow in the area. Besides the wind is was a perfect day!

Climbed Peak 10 and saw this peak and the Crystal lakes below. Did the ridge from Peak 10 and decided to descend to the lakes cause it was just getting plain too late to summit and make it back at a decent hour. That means 10pm, not 2-3am the next day. I had gotten to the top of Peak 10 around 4pm, but the beauty of the area was just too captivating to leave right away. Still had to find my way back to town on foot, didn't have a map.

doumallWinter Summit: SW Ridge over Mayflower Hill  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Feb 19, 2007

doumall

Avoiding avalanche was the main thought of the day with a considerable to high danger, 6 inches of new snow falling and heavy SW winds. Very deep unconsolidated snow below treeline, ridge running over Mayflower Hill and climbing above all the avy chutes in route made this a long 10 hour day. At one point below treeline, my buddie sank up to his shoulders straight into the snow. The last 1/2 mile of trailbreaking was possibly the most difficult hiking ever for me, and it was downhill!!!
