West Face Chute after Turret Peak Date Climbed: Jul 3, 2016
Starting from Hooper Diversion TH, we climbed a class 3 gully to gain the ridge east of Chamberlain Lake (just north of an easier class 2-3 gully). Summitted Hooper, then backpacked to Marie Lake as a base camp to tag Senger, Turret, and Gemini before heading to Florence via the JMT.
2-day backpacking trip. day 1: hiked in from Bear Ridge TH (Bear Creek is better).
Day 2: a long day (23 hours). start 4:20am from Sandpiper Lake, climbed Seven Gables, then Gemini, hiked out (Bear Creek trail, then Cut Off trail) and drove home.
Started a 3 day weekend at Hooper Creek Diversion Dam and spent the night at a fantastic spot on Marie Lake after climbing Mount Hooper. Up Senger and then off to the west side of Gemini and down the north ridge and then Seven Gables in the afternoon.
