SW ridge from Hackney Lake Date Climbed: Jul 18, 2009
Camped at Hackney Lake. One of the hottest, buggiest trips ever- but still a great climb! While we were sitting at the summit plaque munching sandwiches and swatting 'skeetos, a group of goats kept peering up the north ridge at us, anticipating our departure so that they could come up and enjoy!
23sep09 - A 1-day outing begun from the Bear Creek Pass Trailhead, I hiked to the pass then stayed high on ridges to climb a highpoint above Lookout Lake before continuing to Whites Mountain. A good 12 hour day.
27jul07 - Alone for this outing on a mountain I’d never visited (and with no beta), I climbed the North Ridge to a spot in the clouds which allowed no views of what lay above. I down-climbed into the cirque (below the northeast face) and crossed to the East Ridge which I used to reach the summit. I descended by the Southwest Ridge.
A good day in spite of the low early-morning clouds.
