"V 8"

I camped at Bandera Mine Saturday night and started hiking up the road towards Hope Pass at 6 am. After reaching Hope Pass I continued up the steep and loose ridge to "V 8". I got to the summit at 8:27 am.

Beattie Peak

I continued along the ridge to Beattie Peak. I chopped some steps to avoid putting on crampons. I got to the summit at 9:16 am.

Fuller Peak

I continued along the ridge to Fuller Peak. I got to the summit at 10:01 am.


Vermilion Peak from Fuller Peak

Vermilion Peak

I continued along the ridge to Vermilion Peak. There was a decent amount of snow and ice on the route, but good steps. I got to the summit at 10:41 am.


Vermilion Peak from Golden Horn

Golden Horn

I descended the terribly loose northeast ridge to the Vermilion-Golden Horn saddle and continued up towards Golden Horn. I descended a couloir on Golden Horn's south face and hiked out to the two wheel drive trailhead. I returned to my vehicle at 3 pm.

How'd you like that traverse from the saddle looking into Hope Lake to Beattie?

I remember the ascent to "V 8" was very steep with large, loose boulders. The ridge from "V 8" to Beattie was more pleasant.
