A nice climb through meadows and slabs up to some less than stellar scree near the top. Tamarack is an awesome lake with gorgeous golden trout cruising the shallows. An awesome infrequently visited peak.
SW Ridge (ascent) / South Slopes (descent) Date Climbed: Oct 28, 2006
Long--very long--dayhike of Lion Rock and Triple Divide Peak out of Crescent Meadow. Approached the peak from Tamarack Lake, and gained the southernmost west ridge when it looked preferable to the loose talus on the south slopes. The ridge was more solid, and had some enjoyable class 3 scrambling. Recommended.
The NE Chute had a lot of snow, and didn't look doable without an axe/crampons, so I had to descend to the south and traverse around to Lion Pass to make my way over to Triple Divide.
