Hiked up from Hope Valley Sno-Park. Hardest part was crossing the W Fork Carson, nothing like starting the morning with wet boots!

Took the forest road 035 about a mile up. Then cross country. Steep, lots of chaparral to negotiate, got hailed on. Didn't read this page first. Don't recommend the route but got great shots with all the weather around.

Figured the lack of snow would allow for a winter ascent using the service road - started at the 88/89 junction, followed service road most of the way before breaking off for the final ascent up Hawkins. Then followed ridgeline over towards Pickett, looked quite difficult from far away but pretty easy class 3 climb. Found summit register on Pickett just west of highest rock. If you sit on the highest rock and look down you will see it (that's how I saw it - it only had 7 signatures since 2006 so most people are not finding it). Cross country through forest to hook back up with service road after Pickett. Only needed snowshoes for about 20 minutes while on descent from Hawkins on NW facing slope towards Pickett. After than hiking boots were fine. Used microspikes on service road as warm daytime temps led to lots of ice in the early evening chill. Trip report is HERE.

Combo with Hawkins, this peak was a bit more challenging than I imagined. Made sure everything was secure on the top...very cavernous gaps between the summit rocks.

MarmadukeWinter Storm on Memorial Day Weekend  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 28, 2011


When we started the peak was visable but the weather was quickly turning bad. Left the Burnside Lake parking area by the 88/89 interchange and just headed towards the snow ridge. Made the ridge and continued to the summit. Snow flurries along the way and winds, maybe 60 mph along the ridge. We camped on the ridge amongst the trees. 6 inched of snow overnight, head down and got to the truck. 24 degrees at 8 am, Also- couldn't find a summit register, ???

Date Climbed: Jun 20, 2010


Climbed this on a dreary day from Pickett Peak Road in 2009 after tagging Waterhouse in the morning. Those picks are here.

Did it again along with Hawkins from Burnside Road in 2010.
Those picks are here.

Much preferred the latter route.
