McCannsterIn a Day  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 16, 2013


I took the "contour" short cut from Gunsight up to Anderson pass on the way up, and took the chute below Anderson Pass down into the basin on the way down. Cool area, but crowded (as expected). 10 hours 50 mins ctc, highpoint # 26.

Beautiful area. Only saw 7-8 people the entire two days we were there, pleasantly surprised. We took gunsight pass route from dollar lake, then hiked out that evening for a long day. Mosquitos were only bad thing about an awesome trip, and peak.

Solo backpack into Henry's Fork Basin and climb via Gunsight Pass. Clouds building by noon, but no thunderstorms. Hiked out after the climb to get away from the mosquitoes.

Date Climbed: Aug 17, 2013


8/17/2013 Got an early (5 am) start from camp at Dollar Lake to beat forecasted thunder storms. We reached the summit at 8:15 am. Weather was holding nicely while on top I so headed over to South Kings. On the way back the weather started to turn. Made really quick time back to Anderson Pass as the skies darkened. We were back to camp by noon and broke camp and were back to the trailhead by 3:15 pm. Fun two days that included Gilbert, Gunsight, East Gunsight, Kings, and South Kings.
-Climbed Kings Peak as part of a backpack with my dad sometime during the summer of 1999. Cannot remember the exact dates.

From Island Lake in the Henry's Fork we took the Gunsight Shortcut. First ones to summit that day at about 9:30AM!! Took the Toilet Bowel back down and across the basin back to camp. Love this hike/summit, what a beautiful area!

I started about 1 AM from near Little Superior Lake in the Garfield Basin. Got to the saddlepoint at Anderson Pass about 6 AM. Happened to meet up with Bill and his wonderdog Toby there. We three got the top around 8 AM. Great views.

patascentTrail Run/Summit Scramble  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 28, 2012


Approached from Henry's Fork. Jogged most of the trail below Gunsight then scrambled to the summit. There was a storm approaching so we only stayed at the summit for about 20 minutes. We got caught in some heavy rain/hail on the way out and took shelter in some small trees for awhile but still made it back to the car in about 10 hours. Fun day trip with my friend Tony.

Date Climbed: May 25, 2012


Fun backpacking trip with my friend and dog. Camped in the trees on the way up. Reached the summit the next morning. Camped one more night and just hung out on the mountain. It was a lot of fun. This was the last hike I went on with my dog. He got hit by a car 2 days after we got back. Great last memories with him!

RedwicState HP #42!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 28, 2012


Technically, this was a solo hike, but another day-hiker (fellow State HPer "John" from Cincinnati) caught up to me near Dollar Lake and we continued the rest of the ascent together. It was very nice to have company. It was very grueling to do this as a day-hike, with only less than one hours' sleep in a 36-hour timeframe, when the hike was complete. My legs and feet did not appreciate this long single-day jaunt, but this weekend would be full of all of the classic elements of a solo out-of-state Redwic peakbagging trip: Long drives, long hikes, little sleep.

cweightSomething clicked inside  Sucess!


I climbed this peak years ago as a young teenager with my father. Something clicked on this hike. I knew that I would be doing a lot more hiking and summiting in my life to come.
