TDRobertsRoute Climbed: Armstrong Pass - TRT Date Climbed: Sep 02  Sucess!


Took Forest Service road off Hyw 89 up Willow Creek. Several miles in a turn to the left took me to the Armstrong Pass trail. From there it was a simple hike - up over Armstrong Pass to a junction with the Tahoe Rim Trail. Once at the top of the pass on the TRT, I found a use trail heading up and right of steep drop offs. Soon the summit was visable and it was just a scree walk at that point. A quick traverse E / NE from the summit took me over to Jobs Sister. For the fastest decent I just headed S / SW down steep scree from the W saddle between Freel and Jobs Sister until back at Willow Creek road.

Did both Freel Peak and Job's Sister on the same day (planned to do Job's Peak as well, but the chance of thunderstorms later in the afternoon scarred me off). Had intended to go up via the old trailhead off of Pioneer Trail (in the Tahoe Basin). However, the Forest Service Road that begin at the end of Oneidas Street was closed from 7/30 through 9/15/03. Instead, I drove south on US 50 to CA 89 (heading east) and onto a Forest Service road .8 on a mile from the intersection on highway 89 and highway 88. The book I had said the trail started at the end of the road, but I never found a trailhead. However, the road ends right at the base of the Job's Peak/Job's Sister/Freel Peak formation, so it's relatively easy to make your way to the saddle between peaks. A relatively short but strenous scramble up the loose scree to the saddle, and from there to Job's Sister. A well defined trail descends from Job's Sister to another saddle and up to Freel Peak. Beautiful views of Lake Tahoe and the western Sierra.

After a short distance past the gate from Fountain Place a couple driving out informed me I was trespassing and should have taken the Armstrong Pass TH near the gate. They kindly let me continue. Climbed up the steep, sandy slope to the TRT to the saddle then headed SE to Freel. Took the longer route back to stay legal and it was lovely.

Late afternoon hike at 4:30... reaching the top at 7:45 and descending in the dark. See my report for the full story on why I left so late.

Nice hike. All three peaks in the area make for a long day.

A fine half day hike with great views. Surprising amount of snow still left at the upper elevations. Trip Report

I summited Freel on a clear, crisp fall day with my friends Mark and Neva. We had a wonderful time and enjoyed the great views.
