mtybumpoAugust Snowstorm  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 9, 2013

Summited just before 5 pm and had the summit all to ourselves. We hiked in from the trailhead and took the shortcut chute below Anderson Pass. While on top a snowstorm rolled in and prevented us from bagging South Kings as well. Snowed hard during the descent.

huskertriguyLady's First Backpacking Trip  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 17, 2013

Took the Girl on her first backpacking trip, for a simple overnighter.

Started in from Henrys Fork, camped about .25-mile above Dollar Lake, away from the mosquitoes.

Summited among a couple different Scout troops. Waited out a storm for over an hour just below Gunsight Pass, then once the thunder passed made it back to our tent to pack up camp in the pouring rain.

The last 11 miles of our 21-mile day were in rain. She did it all with a smile and a spring in her step. I think I will keep her. :-)

Made it back to the trailhead at 9 p.m., just in time to hit up some bad pizza in Mountain View.

State highpoint #33.

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.

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.

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.

As warm on top of the mountain as it was down at Dollar Lake. Gentle breeze, 75 degrees, bright sunshine, perfect conditions!

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!

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.
