My first real scramble. And it was FUN! Climbed with my buddy's PJ and Peter. Made it to the top by 11:30 am and we decided to pass on the Silver Peak traverse. But we made it back to camp by 2 and played cards for the rest of the afternoon. Perfect day of climbing.

Long slog. Views from the false summit are better.

Dustin and I did a cross-country treck from Ebbits pass PCT trailhead to the southwest ridge of Highland. I had to wade through noble creek on the way back as we crossed the stream lower in the canyon. Perfect day.

Had a late start. Weather was perfect though. Not one cloud all day. Was very warm too. Even at the summit, I never needed a jacket. Views were amazing.

Did a shuttle hike from the Ebbetts Pass trailhead to the Noble Canyon trailhead. After reaching the PCT, we immediately headed off-trail up the ridge to Tryon Peak, then back to the PCT, to Noble Lake, up the SW ridge to Peak 10824 and Highland Peak then on to Silver Peak. We returned to the saddle between Silver and Highland and decended a ridge to the Noble Canyon trail back to our second car. The return was mostly in darkness due to a leisurely morning.

A bit beat after Merriam/Royce/Julius Caesar the day before, I headed up to Ebbetts Pass for an easier outing. July is a nice time of year to visit the Carson-Iceberg Wilderness--the flowers were out in bloom and patches of snow still adorned the normally barren peaks.

Great hike in a beautiful setting. This was my first trip to Ebbets pass area. The views from the summit were great. I could clearly see Round Top, Leavitt Peak (Hwy 108) area, and beyond. Skys were clear and the temps in the mid 80's. This turned out to be harder than I anticipated. I guess I need some more conditioning.

Successfully summited my first backcountry peak - woohoo! Weather was great (35 at start, 55 on summit). Original plan was to do Silver Peak as well, but time ran short. Pics and full ramblings at http://hiking.adampaul.com/highland02.shtml

What a fun hike! The best part starts just below the false summit, where my companions decided to turn around. I had a great time climbing up to Highland, traversing over to SIlver Peak, then down to Highway 4 near the campground. With the help of a friendly fisherman who gave me a ride, I made it back to Ebbetts Pass an hour before the other two. Trip Report

Along the approach and climb I saw more wildlife than people, 2 does, a buck, a coyote, a couple of marmots, along with the numerous squirrels amd chipmunks. I only saw 2 packers headed north along the PCT. There were cairns marking the climbers approach trail up to the saddle before peak 10824. The scree was loose and very tiring. Once peak 10824 is gained, the real fun began. It was a fun scramble along the contour and down to the saddle at the base of Highland. It was like walking up stairs to the false summit. I climbed up over the false summit, it was along ways down (a lot of exposure). Coming down I skirted this. Coming down from 10824 it was almost like skiing at times in the scree. I met 2 other people who started up toward 10824 but only made it part way. Take plenty of water. It was quite warm with no cover. A very fun day though.
