SeanReedyCrater Lake Loop with Red Lake Peak from Hope Valley   Sucess!
Date Climbed: Apr 7, 2014

SeanReedy

Hiked up with my dogs in the snow from the pullout near Road 91/Alhambra Mine Road/Alpine Mine Road along HWY 88 in Hope Valley to the outlet on the east shore of Crater Lake. We then headed northwest up the melted out ridge north of the lake to join the partially snowy normal south ridge route from Red Lake Peak to Stevens. I thoroughly enjoyed traversing the ridge north to Red Lake Peak with partial snow coverage after tagging Stevens. We looped down the northeast slopes of Red Lake Peak, waving at Crater Lake to our left on the way back to the parking area along HWY 88. I saw no other visitors on a Monday, but lots of ski tracks and a few snowshoe tracks in the bowls and gullies of both peaks from the weekend.

Christmas hike of Red Lake followed by Stevens starting from the Carson Pass Sno Park. Somewhat tricky summit block on Red Lake, went up the false summit blocks first only to have redo the climb on the correct blocks. Could not locate register on Red Lake, but found one on Stevens. Tried to hook up with the TRT and PCT off of Stevens but wound up in snowshoe hell for 3 hours trying to get back to the Sno Park. Trip report is HERE.

Quick trip that was surprisingly fun - we took the direct scramble route up past the Easter Island rock and then dropped down off the basin on the north side. Nice deep plunge steps halfway back to the car.

A mellow day hike from Carson Pass with the wife and dogs. Didn't see anyone once off the main trail. Gorgeous day and great views all around, including Tahoe of course! Will do it again...and probably ski tour it in winter.

Made the mistake of going around the southeast of the plateau between Red Lake and Stevens. Very loose dirt and rock on that side. At the summit at 9:30am and took the trail on the northwest going back, much better- back to car at 11:45, a little over 5 hours for both peaks. Enjoyed the day.

Simple walk along the ridge from Red Lake. About 1/2 the ridge was snow covered, the rest blown clean.

Ended up parking somewhere on Alpine Mine Rd once I realized that the rocks were gonna eat my cars underside. Took the NE ridge up to the top of Red Lake, headed north to Stevens, then down the SE ridge of Stevens. Didnt see a soul up there.

Date Climbed: Jul 6, 2009

Ridge traverse from Carson over Red Lake to Stevens.
Dipped down and returned via the TRT/PCT.

Nice sunny summer day, but a good 20-30mph wind blowing over the ridge. Kept the skeeters away at least.

Needing some "air time" before heading for Mexico to climb the high volcanoes we spent a couple of days wandering around the Sierra and decided that we would climb Stevens from the highway. I learned here that leather gloves do not keep your hands warm.

pretty much came straight up from the highway. scrambled up from the east. it was definitely more "interesting" than the walk up from the other side. nice weather, pretty much no snow, but windy at the top.

Bagged Red Lake first, and then Stevens. Took about two hours to bag both peaks. The descents along the connecting ridge are pretty tricky. We signed the log book.
