Hiked up to Scatter Lake, set up camp and then tagged the summit before dinner. Beautiful night.
Climbed from Gardner Meadows, via mine and north ridge
Climbed up a snow chute from Scatter Lake to the talus of the summit ridge. I had trekking poles and microspikes. The snow angle was fairly steep and a slip could have made for a bad day. The views from the top were outstanding, and there is a summit register. On the way back down I ran into the resident mountain goat. All in all an awesome summit with beautiful weather!
A nice scramble to a great view! Lake was frozen over, but snow made for good travel.
This was the last day of hiking season. Beautiful day with golden larches. Great views. Climbed from Scatter Lake Round trip from TH in 6.5 hours
Due to the snow we mistake the gully before the lake for the lake and grabbed only a side point. No summit this time. I should be back in the fall.
via Scatter Lake
That view was awesome! Pretty simple from Scatter Lake, but that scree is tedious. 1/100! (I'm 14, cut me some slack...:)
I remember looking at this peak from the Gardners and thinking it looked kind of tough but the Scrabble Lake approach made it seem pretty easy. Lot's of fun all the same. My 16th Bulger.
Scrambled from the lake. AWESOME views!!!
Lots of elevation gain, but the trail makes it very pain free and doable. The larches around a jewel of a lake make it very special. Great option during cool, unsettled conditions on the west slopes.
