Woodie Hopper

Lots of boulder hopping. Tricky route finding. Hiked to a higher lake before heading to the saddle. Still a great day. Headed over to Ice afterwards.

Date Climbed: Jun 22, 2013


Went in for both North Apostle and Ice Mtn. Camped two miles in in preparation for another trip. On summit morning, my partner was really sick. I figured the trip was done, but after a long morning, he suggested we hike up and see what happens. So we were able to get North Apostle, but had to leave Ice for another time.

Some nice snow remaining on the north facing slopes in the Apostle Basin...made for great snow climbing to the saddle. Upper ridge was snow free and the summit views were fantastic!

Turned back on Ice about 30 feet from the summit due to slippery conditions, headed up North Apostle as a consolation prize. Great views of Ice from the top.

sevenviiIce + N Apostle  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 29, 2010


We did N. Apostle via the standard SW Ridge. Pretty good warmup for Ice Mntn later in the day. Very talusy approach, and ridge. Not horrible but makes for pretty slow goings.
TH 4:30
Summit North: 9:00
Summit Ice: 10:00
Back to TH 3:00
Lots and lots of talus hopping, and some wet rock made for a very slow descent. Long day, but definitely a great time on these peaks, that dont feel like they are in the Sawatch.

Nice Axe!Apostle Traverse (N to W)  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 22, 2009

Nice Axe!

I'd been eying this traverse since 2005 and finally made it up there. The climb to North Apostle & Ice Mtn was really fun with big talus high up just below the saddle. The traverse to West and the descent were slogs!

via SW ridge (trail to Apostle Basin was easy to follow all the way, but it was a bit of a slog getting to the saddle between N. Apostle and Ice Mtn).

Uuuuhhh? What can I say? Snow conditions weren't that great, I was coming down with a cold and very fatigued. The final hour to the summit involved some poor weather / snow. I'm glad to have earned this one on the solo! When alone, your lows are lower & your highs are higher...

A real let down after Ice Mountain. Nothing but a slog up talus. Great views all around though.
West Apostle looks to be more exciting than North.

chicagotransplantSW Ridge  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Nov 3, 2007


Climbed with Shanahan96 and Jamie Nellis on a really long slog of a day. The snow conditions weren't too bad, but just enough to make the ascent of the talus between N Apostle and Ice even more arduous than it would be dry. Every step either resulted in a posthole or a loose rock under the snow. We also took a gully we thought would be a good shortcut that had a couple of 4th class chockstones in it and one that even felt low 5th. The summit was great though, and the slopes above the saddle were actually completely dry.
