Date Climbed: Sep 20, 2015


September 19

Kim and I started in the afternoon and hiked to Black Mandall Lake, where we set up camp. The autumn leaves are coming out and should be peaking in a week.

Kim didn't like the stream crossings, but it was a good hike to the lake. It was a bit breezy at the lake, but still sunny.

September 20

We woke up to a 29F morning, which isn't that bad for late September at this elevation. At first light we started up Orno Peak. It was chilly and windy, but the skies were clear and we made our way to Mandall Pass and then the summit.

At the fore summit, Orno Peak looked formidable, but it was actually an easy class 2 climb. After enjoying the summit we returned the same way, packed up camp and headed for home. It was a great trip.

Went up to check out snow situation. Some postholing, but not too bad. Turned around at bottom of SE ridge for lack of time. Found an easier way down avoiding dense timber.

Beautiful area. 10 hour hike, 18+ miles for all 3 peaks, 3500'+ gain (see map). Zero people. Pretty damn outstanding.

Round trip from Stillwater Reservoir, up to saddle, then miles and miles across Orno's summit plateau. I visited Orno's northwest summit because it is a county high point, then hiked over in a hailstorm to the true summit. Loud thunderstorms accompanied me from that point on, for a total of 4 hours in rain and hail. 19 miles round trip, but I got back to base in time to climb Flat Top Mountain that evening/night. Long day.

vanny37Southeast Ridge  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 1, 2007


Climbed the southeast ridge route. Great little peak with exceptional views. Beautiful area. Wildflowers were out and there were only a few small snowfields to cross. However, got 'turned around' in the swampy area between the peak and West Coal Creek and met the worst mosquitoes in my life. Just horrible. Also, be careful going cross country, the forests can be thick and difficult to navigate.
