Much more accessible than I thought. Did Cache and Independence from the West in under 4 hours. Great view!

Easy ridge traverse from Cache. Followed the ridge back to the trail rather than dropping back down into the lakes basin.

This is a nice morning or afternoon (but beware of thunderstorms). The brush is a little dense here and there, but the south ridge of Independence over the white quartz blocks is great fun! Stay to the east (basin side) of the ridge for the least vegetation and easiest hiking.

Arctic3Climb with My Daughter
Date Climbed: Jul 13, 2009


My 13 year old daughter and I came in from the lake trail, hiked to the far end of the lakes, scrambled up to the ridge and then followed the ridge to Independence summit. On the descent, we headed north down other side. At the bottom we followed a boulder field with a hidden stream back east to the trailhead.

Did this one before Cache. I liked the hike better for Independence than Cache, but both were nice hikes.

Date Climbed: Jul 9, 2006


After climbing Cache Peak I went back down to the saddle and followed the south ridge up to Mount Independence. There were still some snow cornices on the ridge. Then I followed the northeast ridge and descended back down to the first Independence Lake.

Climbed this pretty little peak with my wife and our dog. A great quick outing with stunning alpine scenery. Can be easily combined with bagging Cache Peak next door (which we didn't do).
