trexkerryFreel and Jobs Sister  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Oct 26, 2013
Intended to take the Armstrong Pass route but made a wrong turn and took the much steeper Trout Creek trail followed by the offtrail climb up to the TRT. After Freel went over to Jobs Sister, but ran out of time before I could get to Jobs Peak. Trip report at http://www.mountainhiker.org/trip_report.aspx?id=109

Friday the 13th....my step-son David Frazier, Placerville neighbor Fred Rouse, and I reached the top of the #1 & #2 highest peaks in the Tahoe Basin. We started at 9:10am from the Horse Meadow Trail off Luther Pass (Highway 89) just beyond the highway summit. You take Forest Service Road - FS051 (left if coming from Meyers) and follow it up about 4 miles until you cross a bridge and a creek. As soon as you do this you will park your 4 Wheel vehicle on either side. Just to the left you will see the creek and a footbridge over this....just follow the trail up to the first junction of paths and go right on the Tahoe Rim Trail (TRT) towards Star Lake (the sign says 5 miles but you only go about 2 miles)...you will then reach a saddle where the path goes left to Star Lake or if heading to Freel Peak....you go to the right... there is a sign showing the way to Freel Peak (1 mile). We reached this point in 1 hour and 50 minutes from the start at Horse Meadow Trail. Another 1 hour and we were on top of Freel Peak 10881... the highest peak in Tahoe. Looking east at Jobs Sister 10823..... you will see a trail heading down and below across another saddle/trail leading up to Jobs Sister....this took us about another 35-40 minutes. So total time was just over 3.5 hours....we are fit experienced hikers so these times are accurate for most experienced Sierra Nevada summit junkies/hikers. We decided to not go back up to Freel Peak and follow the same path back.......instead we went down from Jobs Sister following the same path we took up.....to the saddle between the two peaks. We we could clearly see Horse Meadow below looking south. From here we choose to cut our own trail down and headed through the loose sand and decomposed gravel. This is challenging and fun for those who have dealt with hiking in this kind of terrain. Less than 2 hours later we found our road above where we had parked (FS051)and, about 1 mile above Horse Meadow. We followed the road down to our Jeep. Great hike... two great peaks with excellent views along the way and from the top. Easy to get to and straight forward if you follow this log. The only caution...make sure to have a 4 wheel vehicle with decent clearance on road FS051 as a rental car or passenger car would have a difficult time of it. ENJOY the hike!!

Date Climbed: Aug 3, 2013

Ran/hiked from Armstrong Pass (Willow Creek), up to Freel then to Job's Sister and on to Job's and back. That climb from "Job's Saddle" back up to the Job's Sister summit was tough. Gained ~1k ft. in about 1/2 mile. I was going on all fours sometimes to distribute my weight int the granite-sand and help prevent from sliding back.

15.3 miles, +5,300 ft., 4:59:06

Camped at Fallen Leaf Lake CG on 8/25/2012. Hiked with Andy Li. Our plan was to hike the 3 peaks in this area - (Freel, Jobs & Sister). We did not make to the Jobs since it was very windy and Andy felt tired. Next time!

Up Willow Creek on snow from 89. Tagged Freel first, then Jobs Sister then Jobs Peak. Very cold and windy all day.

First trip October 1, 2006
Up via the Tahoe Rim Trail route, down the direct route in the gully. Very cold and windy on top. Love the views of Tahoe from the top, looks like it is ready to just spill over into Nevada.
