HohnikerSlushy mess coming down  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 6, 2013

Hohniker

Climbed NE couloir solo during a california heat wave. Got an early start at 4am but snow up the couloir was soft enough not to need crampons. By the time I came down, the snow was so soft and unstable that I had to arrest myself twice. Other than that, beautiful climb.

Fantasticly hair-raising day with Patrick and Pat doing the NE couloir with soft snow, then the sketchy Class 3/4 loose mess. Descending the same way and it wasn't so scary... ? Glad to have finally tagged this baby via the couloir.

Camped at Mills Lake. The low snow made crossing the moraine a real chore. The couloir was icy in sections but easily avoidable, rock fall was minimal. Weather was perfect, clear skies, calm breeze. Summited with Michael, both our first 13K. Awesome route.

Great moderate route done in winter, provided fun snow climbing, mixed scrambling and some great exposure and amazing views.

We started our trek from Rocky creek sno-park. Hiked in four miles to Mosquito flat, then another two miles to base camp (Mills lake). Hit the trail at 5am the next morning and summited Abbot by 1pm. Great climb with some steep sections and good scrambling near the top. Looking forward to coming back some day to take a shot at the Abbot direct route or Mills.

Mostly snow and neve, with a spicy rock finish including a cool tunnel. There was a bit of fresh snow on the rock, so I climbed with my crampons on. Trip report

router1998North Couloir from Mills Lake  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 18, 2011
We planned this climbing for our SW release name Mount Abbot. The weather is great after a week of storm weather. There are good snow coverage from lake.
We started from Mosquito flat trail head at noon time and camped in Mills Lake. The campsite is pretty good.
We started the hike at 7:00am. We tried to walk on left side of lake and tried to avoid the snow. It is a mistake. We have to walk down to snow bank and put the crampon on.
The snow is soft under sunshine and I slipped once and self arrested. The scrambling part is ok in general. I lost the cairnes couple times and have to go back. After the exposure bridge area, the top part is easy. No wind and a beautiful day.
back to trail head at 5:30pm and drove back to Bay area.

Climbed from Dade Lake. Traverse to Abbot was pretty straightforward, although there were a lot of annoying penitentes. Scrambling to the ridge was dirty and mostly cl. 2. The catwalk part is fun, then a short slog to the summit. Great views, decent route.

Excellent outing and great snow/weather conditions with[http://www.summitpost.org/users/pellucidwombat/12893]Pellucid Wombat[/URL], [http://www.summitpost.org/users/shane-rathbun/59854]Wrathbum[/URL] and [http://www.summitpost.org/users/vitaliy-m/62684]Vitaliy Kalashnikov[/URL].
I froze atop the second belay station as the packs made getting through the crux a difficult and prolonged affair. Rapped from the station. My thanks to Shane and Mark for donating webbing and a rap ring to the cause.

Up the standard route- very enjoyable. Snow was very solid crossing the couloir, but not ice yet.
