Mt. Rose Trail, 4th time, second by trail/without much snow. The moon was nearly full so we hardly used lights, even though the clouds were building. 4.5 hours with 1 on top.

Up the new tourist trail with the usual 40mph wind at the top.
(With the usual crowd of horribly underdressed-for-the-conditions folks on the ridge)

Pics are here.

WhiteInVermontDay Hike  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 3, 2010


This was a very crowded hike on the 4th of July weekend. The hike itself is moderately easy. The challenge was getting around the out of shape people.

nickLSE Ridge  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 3, 2009


Never would have known about this trail without SP! Lots of bushwacking at the bottom of the actual slope, but cool route overall. Had lunch on church peak cause there was a mob on top of Rose.

ElGrecoSE ridge route - mixed bag  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 30, 2010


Made it to the summit and camped out overnight just below treeline. Beautiful, calm conditions all the way to the summit, mountain wind picked up during the night. Never found the "bridge" mentioned across Galena Creek, so ended up crossing on fallen logs. The willows (?) at the beginning of the trail (which was hidden in snow) are so infuriating that I would never do this climb again. The views of the lake from the summit are stunning, but they only reveal themselves at the very end - that side is hidden for most of the ascent. Freeway noise is present for a good part of the climb too.

Some parts of the climb were brown, but there were snowfields that you could link for most of the ascent. The snowshoes stayed on the pack - not really needed at any point, kicked steps throughout.

A good experience, but not one to repeat. No comparison to the breathtaking Tallac climb, for example.

PeanutVirbram Five Fingers at the Top  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 21, 2009
Went up the new trail for the first time with my friend and first-time hiker Chris Mortenson. Also, hiked in my Vibram Five Fingers for the first time and loved it! My feet were sore by the end, but not in a terrible way.

The new trail is really great. If you have not been up the new trail, give it a go!

One of my favorites to escape the heat of the Biggest Little City. Excellent trail run with plenty of water to splash in. Phebe's first proper mountain climb.

Lots of bushwhacking; not a lot of scrambling. Still, not a bad route (beats the trail).

Try it during the Winter (beats the trail and bush wacking) ;)
