trexkerryWith Pickett from 88/89 Junction  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jan 18, 2014
Figured the lack of snow would allow for a winter ascent using the service road - started at the 88/89 junction, followed service road most of the way before breaking off for the final ascent up Hawkins. Then followed ridgeline over towards Pickett, looked quite difficult from far away but pretty easy class 3 climb. Cross country through forest to hook back up with service road after Pickett. Only needed snowshoes for about 20 minutes while on descent from Hawkins on NW facing slope towards Pickett. After than hiking boots were fine. Used microspikes on service road as warm daytime temps led to lots of ice in the early evening chill. Trip report is HERE.

Hike Hawkins along with Pickett on a beautiful fall day. The colors were great in the Hope Valley and temps were perfect. We started from the wrong trailhead but everything was fine with a little more cross-country.

About 4 billion MPH winds on the top, whipping through the hideous communication tower. Some toolbag ruined the Hawkins rock by etching something very close to the Hawkins sig. But still cool to see that old etching.

Summit was disappointing with a bunch of "construction" stuff on top.

Did Pickett first. Hawkins next. Snow just below the summit block made it tricky. Some of our group wasn't able to make it up.

From Burnside road near the Burnside Mine/Creek turnout.
Hit Hawkins first and then Pickett. Small snowfield traverse needed on Hawkins which should be avoidable in a week or two.
Saw a bear on the slopes of Hawkins on the ascent.

mrchad9Winter trip, 2x  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jan 16, 2011

First trip on Oct 13, 2007. Spent the morning on Mount Patterson and drove here in the afternoon. The gate was open to the jeep road from Burnside Lake Road, so drove up to within 400 feet of the top. Short, pleasant hike from there.

Second trip January 16, 2011. Cloud level was 9500 feet in the morning, but almost 100% sunny by the time I made the top. Good snow conditions, and up Pickett on the way. Nice full day for a winter outing.

Hiked the road with Dean. Nice hike, but the altitude slowed me down a bit.

Quick afternoon summer hike. Liked the Pickett summit better than Hawkins (but Hawkins had the superior view)

With Dad, below. Didn't like the loose talus on the east side, nearly took my leg off. Dad left me while he went over to tag Pickett. Isn't child abandonment a crime?

A nice hike of about 4 1/2 miles with close to 2000 feet of elevation gain. We went up the north side and left via the east.
No register found but did note a couple of witness benchmarks. The main benchmark was not present. ??? Nice viewpoint. My hiking companion was Dennis Poulin. After this one, we headed over to do Round Top.

Climbed the peak via the dirt road access. Parked the car on Burnside Lake Road (FS19) and hiked from there with my ten year old son. Enjoyed the upper scramble. Summit register was soaked. Next person going up needs to add more paper.

Bypassed the locked gate and 4-wheeled to within about 3/4 of a mile from the top. Hiked the last 3/4 mile and ~700 feet to some of the best views in the Tahoe Basin. Everything from Sonora Pass, Ebetts Pass, Carson Pass, Echo Pass and Freel/Jobs Sister/Jobs were viewable. Will post a panoramic once I download my pics. This was the first of three 10ers on the day, way better than being at work on a Friday!
