Route Climbed: NE Slope from A. Earhart saddle and Ireland Lake Date Climbed: Aug. 1, 1979
Climbed, along with Bart O'Brien, Steve Thomas, and Pat O'Leary, on the way to doing Amelia Earhart Peak from our camp at the stream outlet at Ireland Lake. Beautiful area! Returned to the meadows by cutting over the ridge North of the lake, dropping down past Evelyn Lake and followed the use trail down the creek that feeds into Rafferty creek.
Route Climbed: Traverse west-> east Date Climbed: July 31, 1998
I set out to climb Mt. Florence in a three day effort and made a complete mess of it. Parsons was the consolation prize, made better when year's later I found out it was a county highpoint (or near one). I still have to go back and do it as a dayhike to "set things right." :-) Trip Report
