Gimpilator, his friend Greg, and I summited Mount Aix. The terrain above 6900' had fairly consistent snow, enough to enhance the scenery but not enough to impede our progress. As a result, after leaving Mount Aix we took the side-trip to the highest summit of Nelson Ridge. It is just a walk-up. Good views.
Summited the 7495 and 7537 points after summiting Mt. Aix. Pretty cool little ridge, especially when viewed from about 1/4 of the way up the Mt. Aix summit where Rainier in the background is visible and matches the heights of the Nelson Ridge peaks. Great panorama!
