MValentineS Fork Loop  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 30, 2011


The plan had been to do the Vivian Creek trail, but we got too late of a start and there were no more permits left so this route was suggested. Glad that we took it because the views were amazing. Did the trek to the peak and back in one day on this route.

asmrzUp via Dry Lake Trail, down via Dollar Lake  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 1, 2011


Penelope and I hiked up the Dry Lake Trail to the summit and continued down via the Dollar Lake trail back to our car at Jenks. The round trip was made longer as we had trouble finding the Dollar Lake saddle ( we have not been there before). We backtracked a bit (1.5-2 miles) before correcting our error. We liked connecting the two trails this way. A wonderful day hike. 26+ miles, 11+ hours RT.

Followed the trail to about .5 miles above Dry Lake, then headed straight up the slope. The last 500 feet of small, loose scree was strenuous. Made for a fast descent, though. Car-to-car in 7+ hours.

I definately underestimated this route, especially with snow on it. It was clear of snow until the trail spilt for Dollar Lake. We went up that trail, climbed Charlton via one of its North Couloirs, and then went on to bag Little Charlton, Jepson and San G (!!!). We cut it a little close with time. We came down a chute around Jepson and just followed the drainage knowing that it would meet up with the South Fork Trail. We just found the trail again right when the sun set...it was pretty easy to follow in the dark with a headlamp, but I was wayyyyy tired.

Got a bit lost on the way up due to the snow covering a switchback. Camped at Dry Lake for an early morning summit to San Gorg.

Good times!

SkydiveKen2 years later  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Dec 29, 2007


It has been 2 years since I first saw this route and I have wanted to return ever since. Finally got the chance and what a great hike it was. Hiked up to Dry Lake and then up the third chute to the right on the north face of the Jepson San G ridge. Snow was scoured and mostly ice in the chute but it sure beat post-holeing through the trees. Winds were 40 to 50 MPH on the ridge.
