chicagotransplantAudubin-Paiute  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 6, 2008


Climbed with Shanahan96 and Jamie Nellis via Audubon. Fierce winds all morning had this one feeling more like early November! Luckily we were able to use some of the ridge bumps to shield us.

scooted over to paiute via its traverse with audubon. there wasn't much scrambling but plenty of bumps along the ridge to hide on the south side from the wind. the better part of the climb.

Date Climbed: Aug 3, 2008


Had climbed up Audubon and started across the ridge to Paiute. Got as far as the saddle between Audubon and Paiute when the weather changed from just fluffy clouds to unbroken gray clouds. So down the loose rock and gravel chute to the unnamed lake above Blue Lake. It started to rain, hail and thunder before we got to Blue Lake. By the time we got to treeline the storm had passed and the sun tried to make a comeback. So I guess I'll have to try Paiute again on another day.

I climbed Audubon with CharlesD and his wife Amy. They has already done Paiute so we parted ways there and I continued on the traverse. Nothing hard, just more or less rugged hiking. I descended the SE face which wasn't all that fun. In retropect I would have retraced my steps to Audubon.

Fun easy ascent - snow, rock, willows, and a little bit of everything else. One of the finest views in the state.

Climbed Paiute Peak via the ridge after trail running Mt. Audabon with Chuck D (Charles D) and Heavy G (Chris Gerber). A damn good day in the mountains. Sprained ankle notwithstanding.

NanitaDRoute Climbed: From Audubon  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 2, 1978


After climbing Audubon our group of 8 traversed to the saddle between Audubon and Paiute. Bu only two of us, Brad McCullough, and myself decided to go on over to Paiute. When we reached the summit of Paiute we could tell that we best descend quickly because a strom was moving in. So we found a route down some blocky ledges on the south side.

ColoradoScottRoute Climbed: South Rib Date Climbed: July 2, 2005  Sucess!


The trail above Mitchell Lake had quite a bit of snow and running water on it...quite sloppy. Blue Lake still had a significant amount of ice covering the surface, but no signs of recent avalanch runs were apparent on the slopes in the upper portion of the valley. Several skiers descended varying routes on Toll and the far SW ridge of Paiute.

After summiting by the South Rib route, I dscended the shallow couloir next to it by plunge-stepping and a sitting glissade. An ice axe was necessary for safe descent of this route.

Perfect day! This was a really fun climb with Tim Fischer up great snow, with a sweet traverse to Audubon via the east ridge, then down the SE Ridge of Audubon.

umbra alta

Probably not the best time of year for this face- some snow would have made it easier due to the amount of scree. I sought out all the hard stuff I could just to stay out of the scree gullies. The traverse to Audubon is also probably better from Audubon to Paiute, so as to put the steep North Face of Paiute in your field of view. A moderate scramble all around, but still very enjoyable.

Traversing this ridge provides great views and is also a lot of fun. I also made a loop of this hike by making the steep descent down Pauite into the basin. I had to pick, slide, and jump my way down some scary parts before reaching the beautiful lake above Blue Lake. Great way to experience IPW!

Good climb with some very nice views of the Apache Massif and Fair Glacier from the summit. The gully is pretty steep and loose but not too bad, reminded me a bit of Airplane Gully on Navajo.
