crzyjtE ridge climb, NE couloir ski  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 9, 2009

crzyjt

Climbed the E ridge from Little Willis Gulch and skied the NE couloir. This was a slog with the trail half-melted out lugging ski gear to the summit. Fun day. The couloir makes for a nice ski descent.

I remember this climb like it was yesterday.

When we reached the summit this insane fog moved in very fast and we had to leave the summit in a hurry.

Great day on a moderate couloir. We exited to the left and the couloir was approximately 45 degrees.

Just your standard Sawatch faire. The trail in to Hope Pass was outright beautiful!
Headed over and hiked up Quail Mountain as well. The cabins at the top were a bit of a surprise!

10/8/06 - Sheep Gulch approach to East Ridge. The trail up Sheep Gulch is steep but very efficient. Climbed both Hope & Quail in crappy weather. No views to be had.

6/6/09 - Sheep Gulch approach to Hopeful Couloir. Easy snow climb with great views. Very windy day.

This was my first time climbing Hope. I climbed from the Sheep Gulch trailhead & also went over and got Quail on this trip. I climbed Hope again on 7-20-02 with MountainHikerette.

Ascended the amazing East Ridge from Sheep Gulch, didn't press on to Quail with worsening weather moving in. Can't wait to be back in that area.

4 gals and 2 guys from the Summit Co Seniors ("Mtn Goats") climbed the east ridge from Willis Gulch Trailhead in 4 hours. We descended the NE ridge in 3. Awesome views, soft lower trail, fun scrambles on the east ridge.

Date Climbed: Jul 19, 1997

Up the Sheep Gulch trail at 6:20am, on top at 11:50. The headwall at the end of the grassy approach had too much snow. I had to try several spots to find a way up the false summit. An approaching storm made stay on summit brief.

Awesome mountain. Very steep hike with some loose talus for the last few hundred feet but very rewarding. The views of the surrounding peaks are fantastic. Took about 3.5 hours to reach the summit via the Sheep Gulch TH.

A half mile below the lake at 11,780ft. and the trail dissappeared underneath the snow. Followed the creek to the lake & contemplated doing Hopeful Couloir, snow was too wet & soft so I opted for plan B - the N.East Ridge. A challenging 13er!

Climbed with Shanahan96 and two of my friends from Crested Butte. Like Jamie said, great climb, great day. I have been eyeing this couloir for years and was glad to get it with good continuous snow!

1/6/12- completed a winter climb of hope with aaron. hiked in from sheep gulch TH towards hope pass before veering west to gain the SE ridge @13,600'. a beautiful, bluebird day!

5/19/07- nine people on a thirteener in one day? they must be gaining popularity!

climbed from sheep gulch(south) TH. it was a real steep, and much enjoyed, grunt from the start. glissaded from the pass to the base of the couloir. couloir was sweet! around 1200-1300' vertical and started around 35-38 degrees while getting progressively steeper the entire way. the last 150' was 47-48 degrees and topped out just below the summit.

got a couple good, fair-sized glissades off the southeast face, roughly 1300-1500' in all. nice way to get back to treeline!

can't wait to go back for quail in the fall.

Matt MahoneyRoute Climbed: E ridge from Twin Lakes Date Climbed: June 26, 2005  Sucess!

Matt Mahoney

The hardest part of the climb was crossing the river at Twin Lakes. It was about 100 ft. wide, 4 ft. deep, cold, and moving pretty fast. I avoided it on the return by going over the bridge at Parry campground.



The ridge from Hope Pass has a lot of class 2+ loose rocks (one of which gashed my leg when it rolled out from under me). On the summit I was tempted to find an easier descent on the gentle grass slopes to the south to escape the cold and pellet snow. Don't do this. After descending several hundred feet I found myself surrounded by cliffs, cornices and nasty loose talus, and had to go back up to the ridge to retrace my ascent route.

Great hike on mostly dry ground. Descended the East Ridge route under worsening weather and decided to forego Quail. Nice route.

This is a wonderful mountain; very surprising so few summit logs signed! Great mountain to climb if you wish to be alone. Did so with Aaron Johnson and Elizabeth, my girlfriend at the time.
