|Jmoeesq||Early Morning Summit |
Date Climbed: Apr 12, 2014
|A return to Lake Peak after business in Pojuaque met with success in an early morning outing. Traveled the SF slopes again up to the ridge, made the summit in 2:15 and back to the car in 4 hours. Nice side trip and early am exercise! Weather was nice and views were incredible!|

|Caught this on a traverse from Tesuque peak to Santa Fe Baldy. A pretty nice peak as they go. The jagged ridge actually has a trail, you just have to drop down under the ridge, Class 2 scramble in my opinion. Still nice view and a good start to the day. I counted 1 hour and 40 minutes with a 10 minute stop at Tesque, and 5 minute stop at Deception peak.|

Date Climbed: Apr 21, 2012
|Met Jmoeesq as I was leaving the TH. We talked about the possible snow conditions and discussed our chosen routes. As he mentions he went straight up while I took Raven's Ridge. |
There was intermittent snow covering the trail up to the gate, but once on the ridge proper it was pretty much all snow. No issues as the snow was firm and crunchy. Crampons would have been nice in a few spots, but an extra toe kick made sure I had something to bite.
Once on Deception I took a few minutes to study the ridge to Lake as I've never been on it before. While studying it I noticed Jmoeesq on the final ridge to the summit. I put away one pole and pushed across.
I met up with Jmoeesq on top and hung for a while after he left before continuing on to Penitente.
About 3:30 to the summit.

|Jmoeesq||Bomber Weather |
Date Climbed: Apr 21, 2012
|Decided to make an attempt after a business trip to Pojuaque. Brought snowshoes and crampons b/c I live on East Coast and had no clue about conditions. Ended up carrying them but never using. Was good exercise with extra weight anyway and I felt better being prepared. Weather cooperated and was totally bomber. Barely a breeze on top. Not a cloud in sight. Took route up ski slopes b/c I was short on time. Made summit in 2:40, spent :35 on top and was down in 3:45 total time. Was an awesome climb and views were unbelievable! Ridge to summit was interesting--took some thought and concentration. I dropped down right a little in places to avoid some unacceptable exposure. Overall was wonderful time. Really glad I took the time to do it.|

|Liba Kopeckova||Nice hike|
|I hiked this peak several times in the past... A nice hike with an easy scramble... New Mexico Hiking book describes is as difficult, but I don't think so. I usually get up and down in less than 3 hrs, and take time for photos.|

|asaking11||Raven's Ridge |
Date Climbed: Oct 17, 2009
|Hiked up to Lake Peak, beautiful views, and then hiked over to Penitente Peak. I did this whole hike car-to-car in 4.5 hours, and I thought I was doing way awesome until I saw a couple of guys running up the trail.|

Date Climbed: Oct 19, 2008
|I was training for climbing in Ecuador and the day after climbing Santa Fe Baldy, I headed up Lake Peak. It was cool to see where I had been the day before. It was also the last mountain for my sweet dog Wiley.... he died 9 months later.|

|Awesome day trip from the ski area with our friends Linda and Fernando. Interesting melt formations in the snow remaining up on the ridge top. Beautiful day!|

|wbass||Trio of Sangre |
Date Climbed: Aug 1, 2009
|This is one of the more understated of the southern Sangre peaks. Most are rounded (like Penitente or Deception) or easy to climb and Lake has some actual scrambling and route finding. No clouds, no wind, wonderful day. We came up from Deception, then onto Penitente and back via Winsor.|
