awilsondcEast Ridge Fail
Date Climbed: Sep 5, 2015


I attempted a scramble of the east face of the middle peak starting at the first prominent notch along the S-N ridge line. I made it up a dirty class 3 gully to the saddle and then up the ridge towards the summit to about 6200 ft before running into a cliff. There was a rappel sling there and I couldn't find a way to descend so I called it a day and returned the way I came. The down climb was loose and sketchy. I'll return some day, but do the normal trail to the true summit. I did get this nice shot of the east face though, so it wasn't a total loss.

stewie81Climbed Middle Peak (east summit)  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Feb 8, 2014


We topped out on the east summit after climbing three south-facing couloirs that had enough snow to make it fun. Some scrambling required, including just below the east summit. We had planned to take one of the east-facing snow gullies above the northeast bowl, but snow layers on the way there seemed dicey. Instead, we climbed through a notch in the east ridge to its south side, where a route became obvious.

It was a fun climb on a beautiful winter day. We had not realized that the slightly higher peak of Mt Angeles was on the other end of the ridge to our west, but we set out to climb the east peak and made it. Approach was via the switchback trail to the Klahhane Ridge. Trail had been broken through the snow to that point by snowboarder(s). Ice axe was helpful.

Absolutely perfect day and conditions. Just me, some marmots, and a bear on the trail. Wonderful last day of a solo trip to the Pacific Northwest.

2011 is the most recent time I've been up Angeles but I've gone up here countless of times! Very enjoyable hike and it is always fun to make up your own route up!

LuminousAphidKids Hike  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 13, 1995


I'm gonna guess this was in about 1995, although I don't know the exact year. I was young and even this was a pretty long trail for me, but I had to get to the top and no matter how many times my grandma (she was a pretty fierce hiker) said "we should stop here" I kept selfishly rambling forward, until the scree ended at a short summit block. I just went on up and I don't think they could have stopped me, and this was probably my first truely meaningful summit. I had lead the way up, instead of being dragged along by my parents, and that meant something. The views were awesome

Standard route - I think was the first time I attempted a Class 2 peak. I remember thinking it was really scary at the time. :)

RedwicGreat Snow Climb!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Feb 5, 2012


I cannot believe...
-> We had a group of 12 people, some of whom are prominent local peakbaggers, in our group.
-> None of us had previously summited Mount Angeles until this trip.

We took a short route that gained nearly 2000' in the first mile. Great views, great snow climb. Here is a helpful tip: Do NOT take the "obvious" gully... go around the left side of the rocks to find the correct snow chute that leads all the way to the summit. Highly recommended snow climb.

Great Views. Had a little difficulty with other people knocking lots of rock on us but well worth it. I just didn't see any wildlife at all.

Hard packed snow allowed us to wear crampons car to car. We had great views once we got out of the trees.
