trexkerryFound the GPS  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Oct 18, 2014
3 weeks after losing my GPS in the snowstorm, my brother and I set out to find it. Not sure what was more surprising - that we found the device or that it worked (once I put in new batteries) after being exposed to the elements near the summit for 3 weeks. Had an hour of daylight left on the way home so we did the easy hike from Camp Sacramento over to Lovers Leap. Good day all around. TR is HERE.

trexkerrySnow Day  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 27, 2014
First snowstorm of the season came overnight and with snow forecast for all day I thought this would be a fun one. Parked on Hwy 89 and walked up the FS road to 8500 feet before going cross country through the snow. Snow was falling all day. Wind and cold temps on top made it somewhat uncomfortable and visibility was terrible. Never even saw Freel or Jobs Sister the whole day. To make matters worse I lost my GPS about a 1/3rd of a mile away from the summit while climbing up the rocks on the ridgeline. Must have gotten buried in the snow. When I got home I saw that the trail stays much lower to the left, so I have minor hope that my GPS will stay in those rocks since they probably aren't climbed frequently. Thankfully I was able to pretty much follow my tracks down. Trip report is HERE.

Part of a 3 peak trip from Luther Pass, Freel, Job and Job's sister. I think I'll be heading back this winter for some backcountry skiing.

Left the trailhead around 11p and hit the summit at 1am. We had a bright moon and high wind on the ridge but the views were awesome.

Which trailhead? Is the gate open on the road from just S of Luther Pass?

SEFFaye Canyon Repeat  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 10, 2012
Did a repeat of the Faye Canyon route with dog. From Job's summit, descended the long ridge to the East Peak, then descended the E Gully. Entire loop, up and down, in 5 1/2 hours. Not another person to be seen. No snow left on either route.

Able to drive to 8900' courtesy of the Jeep. Good trail from there to the top. Beautiful day...spent about an hour lounging on the summit.

Date Climbed: Dec 28, 2011
Took the Faye-Luther trail from the Carson Valley and then followed the cairns/trail remnants to the summit. Completely snow free, which is remarkable given the date.

SEFVia Faye Canyon  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Oct 16, 2011
Starting on the Faye-Luther trail system, the dog and I followed the trail up Faye Canyon. Trail gradually fades after a few miles to bits of tread and cairns as it heads up Jobs S Slope. At around 8500 feet, the slope becomes unconsolidated sand and is very tedious. A lot of people were enjoying the cool and windy summit. Headed down Jobs E Slope to the long class 3 ridge that reaches a high point, then descended the E Gully route back to the Faye-Luther trail system. Unknown mileage, but 6,000 feet of gain.

SKISpring Fever  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Apr 30, 2011


Fun day out. Started from Carson Valley floor, went up drainage and bagged Jobs looking to descend Jaws coulior. Pretty icy all around (high in the 30's) so decided to instead bag Jobs Sister and Freel as well. Snow had corned up by the time I had finished the traverse so it was an exciting ski back down to 6,500.

A nice and cool but very windy January day. Solid snowcover except for some of the ridges from 89, up Willow Creek, and to the summit. Reached Freel first, then over to Jobs Sister and Jobs Peak.

Date Climbed: Oct 9, 2009


Bagged Jobs, Jobs Sister and Freel peak in a single loop starting from the Jobs Peak trail head. A recent snow made for a beautiful hike. No register at the summit of Jobs so if anyone is inclined, this peak could use one.

AmbretJob's Peak from Freel  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 9, 2009


Hiked over from Freel after coming up via Armstrong Pass. Nice views of the Carson Valley, though some haze. Then backtracked to Freel and down. Was tempted to try Job's Sister, but it had begun to drizzle and time was getting short. Next time!
