Ran up the west ridge from the Pioneer Cabin trail. Was a bit of a talus slog with lots of biting flies. Sweet views of the Pioneers though!

biked up Parker gulch, or at least tried. My lungs and legs needed many walking breaks. A short hike from the saddle was rewarded with amazing views on the Pioneers.

Bad snow pack. Sunk in up to about knee level, even with snow shoes, on parts on the way up. The descent was aborted and I took a line into Bear Gulch to get off the steeper slopes. I was sinking in almost to my waist! Posted holed on flat ground back to the road. I don't think the snow pack is freezing overnight, as projected. Great views and route though!

You can view the entire route from the road in. Was a beautiful hike in punctuated with a snow approach in the upper elevations. Views of the Pioneers along the way and at the summit are stunning.

Finally made the summit after a few attempts. The snow was great the weather held and the veiws were amazing. This is a nice warm up hike for the serious ones to come.

Beautiful day on a beautiful mountain. Johnstone is one of the outstanding vantage points in and of the Pioneers. Snowcovered summit with a huge cornice after coming up through a softening snow bowl below the summit.

I walked up from Parker Gulch and flushed one Grouse from the first ridge in the trees. I thought this was a better view of the Pioneer's than from Pioneer cabin! I'll have to ski it in Winter.

Nice peak with excellent views. Its one of only a couple peaks in the Pioneers that you can do in winter on a single day outing. Here’s a trip-report and some photos. It was a great day!

Climbed with Kevin and Dan. Beautiful day. Great hike any time of year, with good snow conditions. Great view of Hyndman, Old Hyndman, Cobb, and the rest of the Pioneers almost the entire way up

A nice quick hike with beautiful views of the Pios. Careful up there though, a few moose got too close for comfort.

We were able to get to the starting point with 4 wheel drive. The last mile was not plowed, but had some previous vehicle traffic since the last snow. We broke trail with snowshoes all the way to the summit which took us about 4 hours. We flew down in 1:45 after enjoying the view from the summit. Hiked with Jeromeclimber, and bigdan. Great day!
