Highpointer1837Barb Lake Route  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 16, 2017


Drove the rough road all the way to the trailhead and broke a leaf spring along the way. As soon as I got out of my vehicle it started pouring down rain, so naturally I expected the rest of the trip to be doomed. Followed the Barb Lake route, which with a topo map and GPS was not too difficult. However, the route is heavily choked with deadfall, most of which was at hip level or higher.
I have not tried the Gorge Lake route, but with all the deadfall of the Barb Lake route it may be the better of the two. That being said, Barb Lake is absolutely beautiful and the route after the lake is nothing more than a simple stroll.

Great hike with Jobe Wymore. We ascended via Barb Lake and descended by way of Gorge Lake. Steep descent down to Gorge Lake with some snow and ice. Fun loop hike.

PeakerVia Bond and Barb Lakes  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 10, 2013


We decided to come several miles past Bond Lake with mountain bikes on what looked like a road on google earth. After riding a mile to Bond Lake the "road" turned out to be a large ditch for transporting water. This added three miles of hiking one way which made for a longer day than expected. We eventually reached the summit after much bushwhacking, which was well worth it.

brianoelbergGorge to Barb traverse  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 30, 2012


Climbed via north face from south Gorge Lake, per description on main Tweedy page of this website...loose bouldery scree at the top is sketchy and easily avoided by going up the northeast ramp: after two hundred yards on the unmarked but cairned/blazed trail to south Gorge Lake, heading south up the mountain after about two hundred yards on the trail to the lake...if you get to the lake you've gone too far. There is no loose scree climbing the northeast ramp. Sweet soft sandy descent to Barb Lake and a swim on a sandy beach. Then the bushwack out...trail is mostly cairned but easy to miss trail and goes up and down and sucks.

Came in through the Barb side and ascended the snow slope. Saw a mountain goat at 11,000ft. Signed the log and then went down a very steep and questionable route to Upper Gorge lake.

Climbed via Gorge Lakes and North slopes. 6-8 inches of snow on N. face made scrambling not so fun. Cold and wet. Will return as Gorge lakes are an incredible and easily accessible spot.

Double summited Tweedy and Torrey from Torrey Lake. Great day for my first time in the Pioneers. Storm moved in and we woke up to six inches of snow on Labor Day!

Date Climbed: Jun 24, 2007


Bluebird June days are simply too nice. A good moderate climb with fun scrambling after the technical pitches, hungry trout, and nice camping contributed to the overall excellence of that weekend.

Second time up the North Ridge rock route, first on the summit. The ridge above is interesting scrambling. Beautiful weekend in the mountains, unless you were a trout!
