Gannett Peak in May?

Postby RangerJoe224 » Thu Mar 31, 2011 9:23 pm

Hello! Was wondering if it is possible to do Gannett Peak in early May? I'll be passing through the area around that time and would love to tackle this challenge.

Possible? Sure. I wouldn't advise it though. The approach will be much more difficult due to snow levels. Check out this trip report to get an idea of what you could encounter.

Even in late June you will be mostly on snow. Here's my TR from last week of June 2010:
