metasyn11Trout Creek  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 6, 2007


After some muddy confusion finding the right trail at the gate (I just had to go straight down the dirt road), I made it up the alternately brushy and sandy use trail and up the northwest slope. Then a quick excursion to Jobs Sister and I was back.

mybackyardwinter ascent  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Mar 3, 2007


A long day. My cousin Tyler and I snowshoed in from hwy 89 above hope valley. I am sure there are shorter routes in winter but what the hell. Great views! Soon after we reached the top some guy came up on his snow mobile to about 200 ft. below the summit and walked up to enjoy the view. The thought crossed my mind of bum rushing him and stealing his snow mobile to avoid the long slog back but before I knew it he was gone. Oh well!

Date Climbed: Jun 24, 2007


Reached Freel in 2hrs 45minutes from the car parked at 8200 feet. Took the Armstrong Pass route. The route was free of snow. The route up the last mile is now well-laid out with cairns and a clear use trail. Hiked Jobs Sister afterwards.

Awesome mountain. It's my tallest climb so far. On the ascent I got slowed down by the sand. But on the way down it was a big help. Next time I will start earlier so I can get Job's Sister and Job's Peak.

With my son. Unfortunately my son got a touch of altitude sickness and we had to turn around 600 feet short of the summit. He was fine on Lassen the day before. Probably a good thing that we didn't continue as I bonked harder than I ever have before on the way down. Could hardly put one foot in front of the other when the trail headed up. Should have done Round Top instead. Oh well, next year, and we will bring bikes!

KerstinHiked up south slope from Freel/Job's Sister notch  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 5, 2006


My husband Dan and I hiked this peak from Job's Sister. From the summit, Dan snowboarded the (still) huge snowfield on Freel Peak's eastern side.

One more time with Anita, July 14, 2007 There is almost no snow up there right now!

And again on July 20, 2010. After reaching the top I hiked to the top of Job's Sister then went down the ridge to the rim trail. After a snack break I headed down an abandoned fire road, then all the way back to the house. A great day.

Made a loop from Trout Creek to Tahoe Rim Trail to Freel Summit (and Job's Sister) then down the Trout Creek trail. Got off trail near the bottom which made for some extra adventure!

The snow field on the east side made it easier. Saw the only people all day coming down from the summit. Climbed from Faye-Luther trailhead.

Aggressive little chipmunks up there . . . they travel in small packs and use diversionary tactics well.

Great Hike on a Great Trail. I love the TRT. Awsome views from the summit.

Second Summit: July 25, 2008 in route to Jobs sister. It was fun to find my entry from almost 3 years ago in the register.

96avs01Route Climbed: South side route Date Climbed: January 29, 2006  Sucess!


After pulling sleds down Oneidas St. we benefited from snowmobile trails to reach ~8200' before ever having to carry our packs. Summit day consisted of mucho postholing with snowshoes until we finally reached the ridge. The incredibly low cloud ceiling limited our views, but we could still see into Desolation and down into Carson City. Had there been more time we would have traversed to the summit of Jobs Sister, but the weather and postholing failed to cooperate with that goal!

This was my first time up. Went with Jay and Chris. Beautiful day, but extremely windy on top! South side virtually snow free. North side had 6" to 18" covering the trail. Returned to Horse Meadow via the TRT. Great hike!
