SarahThompsonFrench, Frasco & Casco  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Oct 27, 2007


10/27/07 - Nice little fall solo hike. Standard Roach route from Halfmoon TH. Some new snow to deal with, but not too bad.

1/19/14 - Via Echo Canyon. A wind scoured line provided an avy safe path to the Bull Hill/Casco saddle and we ran the ridge over Casco and then out and back to French (over Frasco both ways). Quite a long day in winter and the ridge was more interesting than I remembered.

Date Climbed: Nov 3, 2007


Hiked up South Halfmoon Creek, over a few inches of packed snow. South slopes above treeline were completely clear. We left the road early and bushwacked through the willows, then up the easy South slope. Finished with a traverse over to Frasco and Casco. http://www.ericjlee.com/Photos/071102%20FrenchMt/index.php

Summited French along with Frasco and Casco from Halfmoon Road. French Mountain had one of the better summit panorama's I've seen.

The river crossings were high and wet. The scree slope to the Casco/Frasco saddle was nasty. The traverse to French somewhat fun. All said it was a great outing. Also climbed Casco on this trip.

The valley looked golden due to the willows changing colors. This was a very nice hike filled with solitude (no one all day). Highly recommended.

Lovely approach from the west. Summited Casco Peak first. Fun ridge traverse from Casco to Frasco, quick and easy after there. Bombarded by hail on the return. A large church group from Texas climbed French Mtn earlier in the summer - I think they came up from the east side, which is shorter and easier.
