mnpalermWinter Ascent  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Mar 3, 2013


Great ass kicker in the snow!
Made it about halfway up the road to the trailhead before a drift stopped us. Consistent snow pack started at about 5700'. Incredible views.

colinrFrom Granite Peak Trailhead  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Nov 24, 2012


The gate to reach the Stoney Ridge Trailhead closes for the winter snow and rain season at the end of October, so I headed a bit farther north on highway 3 to the turn off for the Granite Peak Trailhead, which was easily accessible (some big ruts near the end of the 2.5 miles were avoidable or one could park in the previous clearing without adding significant mileage). The beginning of the hike was more fun than expected with calm, cool, sunny conditions, fog filling the Trinity River basins down below, and peaks to gaze at in every direction, rewarding the effort to hike all the lower switchbacks. I would not opt for this route on a warm, dusty, summer day. The adventure started when the snow began to deepen with about 2000 feet of gain left. The cross country travel with some postholing, scrambling, and sliding was rewarded with grand views of the Trinity Alps peaks covered in snow as well as clear views of the rest of the north state.

Hiked up here as the first of two warm-up days before Shasta. Nice views of Sawtooth, Gibson, and Caesar. Continuous snow cover for the last thousand feet or two.
