Gunsight to Angell  Sucess!

Fun scramble up the west ridge from Hoffer lake to Gunsight. Descended the south ridge and went up to Angell peak. The plan was to then head west to Lees but smacked my knee after stepping in a snow well and had to head back to LG to get stitches lol.

Best Christmas Ever!!!!!  Sucess!

The weather was great and the snow conditions were awesome. The only reason I didn't give this trip a 5 star rating is on the traverse from Angell Peak to Gunsight Mountain. When we were making the traverse along the ridge the wind came up and with wind chill the temp was well below 0. In several places we had to stop and take shelter from the blowing snow. All in all, great trip.

fun peak. one of my first climbs  Sucess!

My brother Jerrod and I climbed these in the early summer and found a significant amount of snow between Lee and Angell's peak. Great little rock notches on top to stop and eat lunch. Not too challenging though. We were able to summit gunsight in the same day.

Lees and Angell  Sucess!

Josh and I hiked up Parker Creek into the Angell Basin on the way up to Lees. Enjoyed the nice views of Crawfish Meadow to the south before heading over to Angell and down to Gunsight. A fair amount of snow remained on the Lees-Angell ridge and the NE slopes of Angell.

Fun ridge scramble  Sucess!

Scrambled the ridge over from Gunsight. Tried to stay on the actual ridgecrest which made for some Class 3-4 moves. Was a fun morning. Scrambled down a gully on the east side to head over to Van Patten from here.

good snowshoe climb  Sucess!

this is a good summit for snowshoeing. It is obviously very popular with backcountry skiers as well.

Easy traverse  Sucess!

We traversed the N ridge from the summit of Gunsight. Then descended NE to Lilypad Lake from the saddle between the two. All of this route was easy.

West Ridge  Sucess!

Did the traverse from Lookout to Lee, Angel and ending with Gunsight or "Seperation Peak" since I seperated my shoulder there last December. Was a great Hike and saw a huge Mt. Goat ontop of Angel it was amazing.

Lakes Lookout  Sucess!

The easy way. Walked up with Mike, then 3. Mike decided all the tower debris was from a series of lightning strikes, which were reenacted repeatedly in the car on the way home.
Actual date week after Labor Day.

Route Climbed: The Lakes Lookout trail Date Climbed: September 14, 2005  Sucess!

I did this one as the finale of a four day trip to the Elkhorns immediately after doing Gunsight Mountain. Pretty slow going on the drive from Forest road 73. Easy hike with excellent views. Long drive back to Portland afterwards.

On the return from Mt. Ruth I headed west through Crawfish Basin and around the west end of this mountain group to The Lakes Lookout trail. Followed it to the summit then descended down through the saddle between The Lakes Lookout and Lees Peak into the Hoffer Lakes Basin before returning to Anthony Lake.

Poked around Hoffer Basin then climbed the west ridge of Gunsight Mt. before traversing over to Angel Pk. From there I headed across the easy connecting ridge to Lees Pk before dropping off the back side and looping around Dutch Flat Saddle then Angel Pass and back to Anthony. Great day.
