Lot of snow/ice on the rock making it a little more exciting. Saw avalanche activity on ralston and mount price.

I hiked this one a lot with my grandparents when I was growing up. Usually we'd traverse from Echo Peak, sometimes from the Echo Chalet. My favourite descent was down the loose gullies just west of the cliffs. Great place to be a kid!

Had a great day of climbing. There is still quite a bit of snow on the mountain. It was pretty icy in some areas. The views of Lake Tahoe and the surrounding peaks were amazing.

derbillyRoute Climbed: From Echo Peak and down Southeast Ridge Date Climbed: March 22, 2003  Sucess!


Snowshoed from Johnson Pass Rd to Echo Lakes and Echo Peak then down the ridge to Flagpile Peak. By the time I was at Flagpole, the day was spent, the weather was changing for the worse and the wind was nearly blowing me away. This led to a more challenging night time descent via the Southeast Ridge than I had expected.

Climb up this sweet little peak with my wife in a couple hours from Echo Lake. Great rock, great views. A must-do afternoon adventure!
