SenadRPretty cool mountain!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 2, 2017


After climbing Vermilion we climb back to saddle and from that point we took high traverse across snowfield to the saddle. Interesting scramble to the summit. I really like this mountain, probably the best climb of the day.

This basin is awesome! With Dave B. We went up Golden Horn first, then headed up Vermilion's NE ridge. Nice ridge; one 10ft spot seemed tougher than c3 (per Roach), but we may not have been following Roach cuz we were baffled by his instruction to go around one point on the west. Anyway, the worst part was the last 40 or so feet up the dry Vermilion Dollar couloir. Afterwards, we headed to the saddle with Fuller, where I side-tripped up that one while Dave headed down.

Got to summit 10:37AM, heard the first rumble from the Lower Basin 10:45, so I had a whopping ten minutes at the summit. It was great while it lasted! Rains moved in fast. The Upper and Lower basins were both beautiful as always. The summit register, along with the end cap, were missing.

What an interesting day. After scrambling up Golden Horn, I got to within 120' or so or Vermilion's summit following the NE Ridge. A crux filled with ice stopped me. Couldn't figure out how to bypass it. Downclimbed and traversed the east face & caught the NE Ridge above the saddle.
Hit Fuller afterwards and retraced my steps partially than plung-stepped down to the basin.

snow climb up poverty gulch to golden horn. we wanted vermillion also, but there was too much of cornice on top of the vermillion dollar couloir was our liking. the glissades down poverty gulch were great, lots of vertical!

Long hike up talus from Hope Lake side. From Vermillion / Golden Horn saddle to summit is a short, fun scramble.

Ice Lakes basin is a great place and not as crowded as say Yankee Boy Basin due to lack of 14ers. Combined this with Vermillion.

7/3/06 - With Vermilion from camp in Ice Lakes Basin.

3/18/17 - Winter ascent from Trout Lake in amazingly consolidated conditions that felt more like late May. Combined with Pilot Knob.

fun jog from Ice lake TH - first did Fuller, then Vermillion, then Golden Horn's both summits.
2nd time: 10/2 - with a fresh blanket of snow, solo as most of my peaks I prefer meditation and solitude

Climbed with Shanahan96 and Jamie, from the west via Poverty Gulch to the Vermilion saddle then up the south ridge. Originally wanted to climb Vermilion too but it had too much snow.

We climbed Golden Horn on Labor Day, expecting the route to be busy but we ended up only seeing one set of climbers below us as we headed for the summit. We were hoping to climb Vermillion and Fuller as well that day but bad weather cut the day short.
