cdogsummer lightning  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 19, 2017


Scrambled up above the moderate terrain between Echo Lakes to the top. Had a lightning bolt strike just behind me, and dropped to the ground for a while. then finished the summit in the rain & thunder bouncing from big boulder to boulder. Chose a different descent, way crappier than the way up (brush & cliffs). Classic little adventure...

From Echo Lakes, followed the ridgeline up to Flagpole then over to Echo Peak, then down and over to Keiths Dome before coming back via the PCT. A fun time for sure. TR is HERE.

Followed PCT in to beneath Flagpole Peak, up SW slope to tiny saddle NW of peak, then to Flagpole. From Flagpole, followed a varying line, mostly over snow, to Echo Peak. Departed south, straight down boulder field to Upper Echo Lake and out on the PCT.

Amazing views at the top took the tamarack trail to echo peak and then back down the tamarack trail. There are some really awesome rocks at the peak!

fedakMain trail then on to Flagpole  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 8, 2011


Took the main Echo Lake trail and then the spur towards Triangle Lake- but hit the snowline a couple hundred yards up the spur. From there it was cross country on well consolidated snow (no snowshoes/skis) that lasted until 1/4 mile below the summit.

From Echo I continued the ridge traverse over to Flagpole and descended to the lake from there.

Pics and commentary are here.

Gorgeous hike. Tough trailbreaking in snowshoes but had a group of 7 to rotate the lead. Amazing views of Lake Tahoe. A must do in winter!

winemanvanMy First Sierra Peak  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 16, 1973


This was the first Sierra peak I climbed. My friends and I sat on top all day smoking Marlboros, listening--over and over--to The Moody Blues, and Grand Funk Railroad on a big heavy cassette tape recorder. We said things like, "I don't know man." and "Bitch'n".
I didn't have a camera, but the image of Echo Lake below is burned into my head. It made quite an impression.

What better way to spend my birthday than snowshoeing up Echo Peak. Sweet views of Tahoe from the top. We left from the Echo Lakes trailhead.

Climbed this one after Flagpole Peak. The traverse to Echo Peak from Flagpole is easier than it looks. Lots of flat sandy spots. Nice views and finally some cooler temps.

The "unofficial" trail from the Triangle lake junction is in better shape than the "official" spur trail from the PCT.

Skeeters are out!
Pics are here.
