tk421ucopywinter ascent  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Dec 9, 2017
Fantastic conditions. Maybe 20-30 mph wind at the top at max. Went around the north side of Sugarloaf and ascended near the trail area. Didn't bother with crampons. Ice axe was essential for the moderate snow we encountered.

Date Climbed: Sep 29, 2017


Started around 2:30PM. Followed the standard route to summit. Up to a foot of snow deep in some spots with low visibility. The large cairns along the route were very useful. Clouds cleared on descent making for a beautiful evening climb. Back at TH around 6:15PM.

Only seventy three minutes for the 1.6 mile trail to the summit. After that I went and scrambled up Sugarloaf. Four hour total day, including time spent on the summits.

With a half inch of snow on the ground and low clouds, I had opted for Sugarloaf. But as I descended that mountain I saw that clouds were lifting a bit on the higher peaks, and I made a snap decision for Medicine Bow. The top was socked in and as I rested, heavy snow, accompanied by thunder, broke out. I left the summit with alacrity but thankfully no electricity.

jdmorehouseMore times than I can count  Sucess!


The first time was shortly after I moved to Laramie, Wyoming in the summer of 1991. I must have climbed this peak dozens of time during my stay there. Beautiful mountain.

Surprisingly mellower-than expected outing, weather was not ideal, but nice hike nonetheless, even with the constant snow mobile noise. Bagged Sugarloaf as well.

Date Climbed: Aug 29, 2015


Summited with my wife and two boys who are 6 and 9. Perfect weather for a family hike. Started at 9:45am with no chance of rain and little to no wind. Nine year old and I also scrambled up Sugarloaf.

SarahThompsonCouloir climb  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 14, 2015


Climbed a nice couloir above Lake Marie that was moderate for the most part, but had a near vertical exit due to the cornice remnant. Slogged over to Browns and Sugarloaf afterwards which involved a lot of talus and not a lot of fun.

An awesome loop that can be jogged with nearly all of it above timberline. See over 100 miles in every direction on a clear day. Serene alpine lakes, wooded areas down low, and clean air. This was the first time I climbed it, but there were many other climbs and jogs around the loop that crosses the summit. Highly recommended. Can be cold in July up there.

LDuszerGreat day hike  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 6, 2014


Great day hike - still lots of snow on the trail and not a whole lots of people considering it was a clear and beautiful day. Started from Lake Marie TH, went up to the summit, and did a loop by connecting to the Lakes Trail. Gorgeous area.

From Lake Marie TH, very gentle hike to the back with lots of frozen runoff streams. Beautiful views of the many lakes in every direction. Loop down the Libby Lake TH back to Lake Marie. Wonderful, clear, crisp day!

Went up from Lewis lake picnic area and loved the hike. I was about the 3rd to summit on this day but on the way down I met a couple dozen on their way up. This is a popular area.

First time in the Snowy range and the route from East Marie Lake was really a beautiful trail to the peak.

went up to get out of the smoke, and to view the smoke. Sad for all who have lost their homes. Looks like a huge fire. Perfect day, some snow in spots, Harley the dog had fun....Austin Huff, Tyler Renner, two East CC runners.
