Man, what a challenging peak... loose rock, hard route for sure. Lots of danger. I almost got plowed by a rock, captured it on GoPro. Trip Report: HERE.

Woodie HopperRidge climb from Wilson Peak  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 2, 2017

Woodie Hopper

Longish ridge, bypassed a little in the snow. The ridge didn't seem to be as dangerous as its reputation seems to suggest. Had to hurry with dark clouds and boomers closing in, but the weather held. Glad to get this one done after turning around last fall. Climbed with Greg Jagielski.

After looking at it a couple of times, I finally got this one. A surprisingly-tricky class 3-4 scramble with some bad rock, traversing from Cross. When avy danger is low, it's much easier to cross east of the peak and go up the west face. Trip report.

Date Climbed: Aug 22, 2015


Lots of loose rock so going was tedious. Descended a gully on the west side in attempt to save time on the descent which it did not. Loose 4th class downclimbing followed by snowfield traverse and endless talus hopping back to trail. 10 mile day at least we lucked out on the weather since it's a long way back to treeline.

The old "tilting Hilltop" shack has fallen (t was still standing 2 years ago). The ridge was loose, careful footing, but technically not very hard. The views from the summit are outstanding.

Date Climbed: Jun 30, 2013


Did after climbing Wilson Peak while waiting for friends to summit. Fairly mellow C3/C4 depending on how hard you want to make it on the ridge. 1.5hrs from the top of Wilson at what felt like a lethargic pace.

Got slowed down due to a brief early morning shower. Dry by the time I was topping out. You have to love the crowbar for a summit marker.

Kind of glazed over this one and figured it would be a gimme peak while in Navajo Basin. Climbed it after summiting Wilson Peak. Gimme it is NOT, this peak is for real. Great ridge traverse with some REAL class 3 on questionable blocks.

Did the evening after doing Wilson Peak. Fun scramble on the N ridge. I challenged myself a little and tried to stay on the ridge proper more.

Date Climbed: Jun 23, 2012


Solo climb of the North Ridge from the new Rock of Ages TH. Started from where the standard Wilson Peak trail crosses the ridge to Gladstone Peak. Stayed on the ridge crest all the way to the summit. Returned the same way. Nice climb, reasonably solid if you stay on or close to the ridge crest.

Very challenging day to say the least. See TR. Bilk Basin is a beast in spring! Glad to finally have Gladstone done.

Date Climbed: May 29, 2010


As Jamie said, a memorable day! He, Kevin and I were first stymied by a log across the road a mile short of the trailhead, then the bridge over Bilk Creek was non-existent and we had to bushwhack along it in the dark to get to a snow bridge.

The climb itself was a lot of fun and in a great setting, there are some spectacular waterfalls along this trail, definitely worth checking out this basin!

Date Climbed: May 29, 2010


climbed the northeast face w/mike and kevin. the combination of the tree-loaded approach, a raging river and hideous bushwhacking made for a memorable experience before even setting foot on gladstone itself!

after all that the climb itself was very mellow to the east ridge, topping out from there. a memorable experience to say the least, one not soon to be forgotten.

A demanding ridge run. Definately more then what we expected. All in all, I think more mentally challenging then the Wilsons.

Date Climbed: Aug 26, 2006


I think this was my stupidest climb ever. Backpacked into Navajo Basin and awoke to horrible weather. Electrical storms passed through in waves all day. Managed to climb Wilson Peak, hiding out in the old mining cabin to let a storm pass on the way up. Retreated back to the cabin on the way down and then went on to Gladstone. The sky was black, but I had summit fever. My partner waited low on the ridge while I scrambled as fast as I could up to the summit and back. Upon my return, I felt my hair standing up. We booked it down steep, slippery, loose talus back into the basin. Just plain dumb!

Date Climbed: Jul 15, 1995


I did Gladstone from Silver Pick Basin via Rock of Ages. I started up the Wilson Peak standard route until it intersected with the ridge to Gladstone. On the return I saw a avalanche of snow, mud & rock. When the main mass came to a stop, one rock the size of a soccer ball continued down Navajo Basin at a fast pace.
