A way better peak than the local 14ers just to the south. Covered in rime ice like a mini Waddington.

Climbed Pacific and Atlantic starting from the Mohawk Lakes trailhead and climbing the loose crap of a slope to Pacific Tarn.
Atlantic done first than the traverse to Pacific.
BTW...Do NOT do that slope in the summer. Do the east ridge instead

Stay on the ridge to entire way up-very fun and challenging with snow! Climbed with Tim P. in blustery/snowy conditions.

In retrospect, I should have known better...this route in late August, with no snow, is a horror. Steep and loose, football-sized rocks and larger launching. Heck, the melting snow was launching rocks up to fist-sized. Without snow, there is absolutely NOTHING stable about this line. Awful crux section on an otherwise delightful mountain.

KieferNorth Couloir  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 12, 2009


One hell of a line! I can see what Roach and Cooper mean by this climb being one of the best and hazardous.
For early July, snow continued all the way to the col with a 6' ice section at the crux and patchy ice after this.
A very decent climb.
Continued on to Atlantic, re-climbed Pacific and on to Crystal and Father Dyer afterwards with Stephanie.

mattpayne11Very Memorable  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 14, 1987


Notable memories:

1. Our trailer hitch broke on this trip, necessitating us to dump our trailer upside down on top of our pick-up truck.

2. My mom quit smoking this trip.

3. I wanted to do the "ridge-walk" to Fletcher but my dad advised that it was not a safe route to do this time of year (it was very snowy).

Lots of snow but not enough to warrant snowshoes. Finally abandoned the "normal route" and picked a couloir and up we went. Tagged the summit and bailed out of the wind. Because of the hour we had to forgo Atlantic.

Climbed from Crystal Peak before Atlantic. Tiring talus slope before the summit. Nice views. Started at Mayflower Gulch.

We planned on the North Couloir, but started too late. Made our way up the ridge then the summit. Great day overall. Definitely going back to do the couloir!

SarahThompson3x, std route & North Couloir  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Oct 1, 2005


10/1/05 - Mayflower Gulch approach. Traversed from Crystal and then continued along ridge to Atlantic. New snow made talus hopping difficult & annoying.

6/12/09 - Attempt #2 at the North Couloir after backing off two weeks earlier due to unsafe snow conditions. Approached via Mohawk Basin. The cornice was frequently shedding snow down a large runnel on both of my early morning visits. A great line that deserves a bit more respect than the average Colorado snow climb.

1/7/17 - Traversed from Atlantic in frigid temps. Descended into Pacific Creek from the saddle between the two (steep slopes were wind-scoured), and then back to Mayflower Gulch.
