I have no doubt this page will be four stars. After climbing Terra Tomah last year and really enjoying the massive solitude, I thought Stones Peak would remind me of that great day. Unfortunately, I never made it to Stones this season, but it looks like my friend Brenta made it! Fab-when are we going to go get The Spire?

Thanks! Hayden Spire is very attractive. I'll post a couple of pictures of it in the Sprague Mountain page, once I get to it. I'd like to give it a try, but I haven't thought about an itinerary yet. The approach is very long and one should carry gear for all those miles. On the other hand, it would be way cool.

Nice page. The glacier reminds me of Cima Fradusta in the Pale di San Martino. Coming up soon....

Thanks for the vote. I look forward to the Fradusta page and pictures, but this is a much smaller snowfield. (Unless the Fradusta Glacier has excessively shrunk .)

You'll see for yourself in some of the next weeks. Today the glacier is divided in two parts, the upper of which just look like in your shot. The lower one is barely visible from the Altipiano which explains the confusion.



But yes, glaciers have shrunk very much in the last three years. This summer most of the lakes were almost (Carezza, Fedaia, etc) or completely (the smaller ones) empty. A very sorry state of things!

No I didn't, I tried once in winter but found the snow between Flattop and Stones to be slow going.

Excellent page! I was wondering why now one had added this one previously. Great work and thanks for adding!

Thanks, Britt! I guess it's a very hard hike to a not-so-glamorous summit. It's not just Stones Peak, but all the summits in that area of the park that see very few visits even though some of them--Mount Julian and Hayden Spire in particular--are wonderful.

Thanks, Jon! From Stones I got a close look at "your" Mount Julian. What an awesome peak! That part of the park is truly a treasure trove.

This page does justice to this peak which I have admired from many directions. I made one attempt to get up there long ago, but bad weather at the start of the bushwhack, which you nicely describe, thwarted us. This will rekindle my interest, though your accurate route description can also conspire to put out the spark! :)

I guess the pine needles may get into the spark generator as well...

Do you still have that nice shot of Stones from either The Pool or Cub Lake that you used for the "name that mountain" game? If so, may I ask you to post it? Thanks!
