Route Climbed: Ridge from Glacier/Hidden Date Climbed: Mid July 2004
Started from Upper Aero Lake, summited Glacier and worked our way along the ridge to Hidden and Villard. Great day, fantastic area. Descended the SE slopes.
Returned to Villard over Labor Day weekend 2005 to explore the area again an enjoy the excellent fishing. Ascent via SE ridge of hidden with a traverse to Villard was easier than the previous attempt via W ridge of Hidden. What a great area!
Route Climbed: Northeast Ridge Date Climbed: August 16, 2005
Did this on a scouting trip and made a couple wrong turns coming up from Avalanche Lake. Pass "Little Rum Doodle" Spire on the left side to Storm Lakes, then to the saddle, traverse to the snow then on to the left and the summit is a big rock pile with a tiny cairn. Takes about 4-5 hours up.
