johnpaulEast Ridge  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 24, 2013
Climbed the East Ridge with Jaime, Sky and Dakota from Red Mtn Pass. We hiked up Black Bear Pass road to the little unnamed lake around 12,500' where we gained the ridge. I thought the ridge was class 2 maybe class 2+ fairly stable with little if any exposure. Dakota (Border/Lab) ran up it with no problem summiting first!

I backpacked up from Red Mountain Pass, camped in Mineral Basin at 12,800' for the first night of 2012 and hiked to Trico from Black Bear Pass on the second. Really great views. First peak of the year. I watched a back country ski group skin up the basin to the north, and then ski down. Kind of neat to watch. I like to watch.

Combined with T10 and UN13510 from Black Bear Rd at Red Mtn Pass. North ridge looked to be pretty spicy with snow, so I traversed around to the south ridge.

climbed trico from red mountain pass with jamie and mike. 3.5 miles and 2350' vertical made for a nice recovery day after climbing 5000'+ the previous day on the kendalls.

the ridge narrowed considerably the final quarter-mile before the summit making for an interesting, albeit fairly easy, mountaineering challenge. fun day, great weekend!

Climbed the East Ridge from Red Mountain Pass with Shanahan96 and Jamie Nellis. Nice route, some fun exposure on the ridge near the summit. Lots of great looking ski lines off this peak and its neighbors, have to come back with the skis sometime!

Fairly easy hike, especially from the south ridge, we did not know it was so much easier until we got to the top. A good round trip the way we did it. My directions are a little off, it was two years ago.

A beautiful, and fairly easy, hike up from Black Bear Pass yielded a gorgeous view from the summit. I had previously (several weeks prior) attempted to summit Trico via the EXTREMELY steep scree of the southwest face-- this was a horrible idea, more inspired by ignorance than anything else. Getting to the summit via the South Ridge was enjoyable and added a redemptive factor as well. Thanks to SP member Nader for his page and directing me to the proper route.
