Date Climbed: Jul 9, 2005


Was staying at the Olympic Village Inn and hiked straight from there via Shirley Lake and up to the summit. Near the ridge had to cross some steep snow in our tennis shoes. Didn't have gloves so our hands nearly froze trying to pull ourselves up. Met up with some friends on top who had felt the need to take the gondola up.

Great morning/early afternoon outing, though the winds were quite strong. Immediately followed by Oktoberfest at Olympic Village and snow flurries in the evening. Keep the white stuff coming!

Great conditions for snowshoeing, not so great for crampons. Beautiful area despite the resort.

Warm, smokey hike. Fires burning this Summer in the American River canyon have made the I-80 corridor look like something out of southern Cal. I would imagine on a clear day the views would be awesome. Another COHP completed.

Snowshoe from Olympic Village. Great day, less the buttholes of the squaw valley ski patrol.

I was glad to get one more hike in this late in the season without breaking out the snowshoes. Temps were in the low 20's at the start and it was really, really windy. We tried to hit Needle Peak but the winds were way to strong. Hiked with Ol'Walsher. Nice day.

Relatively straightforward hike. We got slightly turned around after we passed under the ski lift, but soon reoriented ourselves.

A nice, easy two-fer for the day. Tinker Knob and then Granite Chief out of Squaw Valley. The trail to the PCT meanders quite a bit and then disappears, but the XC is easy. Nice hike, but would be much better without the ski lifts. C2C time: 6 hrs 45 mins.
