Route Climbed: West Ridge Date Climbed: Several Times
I've summited this mountain about 20 times. I've done it in deep snow, blazing hot sun, and in the early morning darkness and it's always been fun.Only the West Ridge is worth doing. The east side route is too flat and boring. Also, I'm in the process of establishing a new route. I'll post the info when I finish it.
Route Climbed: Colby Canyon to West Ridge Date Climbed: April 20, 2003
Nice day for a quick hike. You begin at the Colby Canyon trailhead. After a few miles, you'll reach Josephine Saddle. Turn right (east) at the saddle and follow the west ridge of Strawberry Peak. Just before the summit you'll need to surmount an 80-foot section of class 3 rock (this is the highlight of the climb). You can descend the same way you came up or go down the trail to Red Box.
