While I didn't summit, I did enjoy every bit of the Cabinets! I wasn't mentally prepared, started late, and so on. The views of Snowshoe from mid-way up the slopes to the E/NE of the lake are awesome! I talked with a guy on the way down and got some info about an approach from the other side of the mountain via Snowshoe Lake...I might try that next year?
Route Climbed: Northeast Ridge Date Climbed: July 6, 2003
Being in the area, I had to try this peak. Information on Snowshoe Peak was very hard to find. A concise TR and a few sentences out of Climbers guide to Montana were all I had. Route finding challenges and a late start conspired to almost force me to bivy. I did learn one thing: a Petzl Tikka with partially discharged batteries isn't bright enough for off trail hiking. I think I was the first person to reach the summit this year since the register was last signed in October, 2002.
