East bowl from Cherry Lake Date Climbed: Jul 29, 2012
A most excellent hike! A little bit annoying to be on an ATV trail up to the lakes. Heard the FWP poisoned all the fish out of Cherry Lake a couple years ago so they could replace 'em with native cutthroats. I didn't bother trying to catch anything - maybe next time. The upper drainage above Green Lake is very beautiful! Saw a herd of goats up in there, too. This mountain may have the best views in the Pioneers!
Climbed from Trapper Creek up the north ridge in about a foot of snow. Parked on the road and hiked in from above an old sheet metal building. Tooks me about 5 hours round trip. Found an old 100+ ft vertical mine shaft on the way back.
also Climbed it when I was 8 from Cherry Lake up a large snowfield that was there at the time it is gone now.
