The connecting ridgeline from Glen Lake Peak was a bit tedious with all the boulders and burnt logs to scurry over, but not too bad. When I got up near the top I was a little surprised to find that it did not look easy! It ended up being pretty fun figuring out a way up and I would definitely say it was strong class 4 climbing. The summit is nice and airy! A good feeling of satisfaction to have completed this fun little challenge, and to have this whole area to myself on a beautiful autumn day!
21sep10 - My friend, Jim, and I climbed over Glen Lake Peak peak on our way to this summit. It was a pretty good weather day, but slippery rock from rain the previous night kept us off the actual summit. Next time I'm trying a slightly different route which I hope bypasses Class 4 climbing.
27jul07 - Hidden Lake Peak is a great place to visit. Unfortunately, since the fires of 2006 swept through the area, you're likely to be covered with soot by the time you reach the summit.
Class 4 climbing is required on the summit blocks.
