requiemFunny time of year  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Oct 12, 2008


right after the storm accompanied by the cold snap, stepped out of the car at Lyon's Lake TH to 31 degrees F and a cloudless day. 3-6 inches of snow on approach, some very crusty sections, frozen snowmelt streams with water seen running underneath (very trippy). LOTTA wind near and at the summit; summit block and the way up to it covered with snow, and my companions left for lunch rather than spotting me for the descent. good times.

Bagged this with Kane on the way back down from Price. Cross country to Smith Lake where Kane fell and broke his arm. The views on this hike make it well worth doing.

I climbed this along with Mt. Price. This was a lovely fall outing/ramble. The little bit of class 3 on the summit is pretty darned fun! There is a snowfield just below the east side of the crest that looks like a mini-glacier, complete with crevasses and a morraine, yet I've never seen it described as such.

A Sierra Club outing. We decided to climb Mt. Price first via Lyons Lake. This route is better than ascending Agassiz from Sylvia Lake as one avoids ascending a steep screen slope. Elapsed time for both peaks was 8 hrs 40 min.

tahoeberneRoute Climbed: West approach from Sylvia Lake via cross country route Date Climbed: Sometime in the early 1980s  Sucess!


I took the long easy trail to Slyvia Lake and headed up the west slope going cross country, picking my way up the easiest way. I got on the west saddle of the peak and followed it to the summit block. Great rock formations at the top to explore.

David LarsenRoute Climbed: Lake Aloha - east face to 9696 - Crystal Range north to Agassiz Date Climbed: July 31, 2004  Sucess!
From west side of Lake Aloha climbed up ridge towards 9696 (between Agassiz & Pyramid). Traversed right on east face of slope to summit of Crystal Range at ridge "bump" between 9696 and Agassiz (class 3 scramble). Traversed northwest on west face of Crystal Range slope until at bottom of Agassiz overhang. Cut left along overhang (class 3 scramble) until you find notch with old pine tree. Slipped through notch to back side of Agassiz overhang, turned right and found summit boulders to climb up onto the top.

Great July 4 hike - not too many folks off the trails - great weather - endless talus. Summit block more interesting than most.

Very short and enjoyable traverse from Mt. Price -- took a little over 30 minutes peak to peak. Followed arohr over and pretended to be hard of hearing when she told me the summit block was "too hard" for me!
