West Ridge  Sucess!

Wow, what a fantastic day! A little on the hot side, and an amazingly deep and fresh snow-pack! Applied sunscreen 3 times and still got burned. I loved this ridge and the views from the summit of this peak are just amazing.

West Ridge  Sucess!

Snow shoes in from Mayflower Gulch. Fun and decent snow conditions on the ridge. Sunny day and little wind on the summit.

West Ridge  Sucess!

Climbed W ridge from Mayflower Gulch in winter conditions. The knife edge and blustery wind made it interesting. Fun snow ridge, nice views.

West Ridge  Sucess!

David Cooper recommends snowshoes for a winter ascent, and so do I. Postholing to hips on the approach and descent provided a nice workout.

Mohawk Lakes-Pacific Tarn  Sucess!

Climbed Pacific and Atlantic starting from the Mohawk Lakes trailhead and climbing the loose crap of a slope to Pacific Tarn.
Atlantic done first than the traverse to Pacific.
BTW...Do NOT do that slope in the summer. Do the east ridge instead

winter north and west ridge  Sucess!

Traversed from Pacific to Atlantic and descended the West Ridge. Not quite enough snow at this time of year for the cornices to form, but there were some good features and it was a beautiful scene.

Summer West Ridge  Sucess!

Climbed the West Ridge with Heath. Kelly and Kim made it nearly all the way. Lots of loose talus on 2 miserable slopes, other than that it was a fun class 2/3 scramble with some exposure. Parking way up the Mc Gulch road was a welcome surprise.

Not very impressed actually with this mountain.
The ridge leading over to Fletcher however, WOW!

UP: Atlantic Cooly DOWN: Ski of saddle b/w Atlantic/Pacific  Sucess!

Climbed Atlantis in good conditions. We started up w/o crampons as the snow was rather soft and punch, even at 8am, but the shaded areas in the couloir were pretty firm, so we found a safe rest spot in the chute to put the crampons on. Skinned from the top of the couloir to the summit and skied off the summit down through the saddle with Pacific. Snow is getting soft early and not completely freezing overnight.

Fun Day  Sucess!

Climbed W ridge with MikeyB. Dropped skis and snowshoes at base of ridge. Lots of new snow made for tough plodding, but not horrendous. Above 13k had a bit of bitter wind kicking. Finally got all the summits in this gulch and it was my first sunny/clear day up there. 7hrs.

North ridge  Sucess!

Climbed from Pacific, third peak today (Crystal-Pacific-Atlantic) from Mayflower Gulch. Talus slope is gentler than Pacific's. Funny seeing all the people on top of Quandry on a Monday, and hardly anyone else around around these peaks today. I was tempted to descend from the West ridge because I thought I was close enough to the Boston mine to avoid the bad scree, talus and cliffs- boy was I wrong! I guess I just wanted to check it out first-hand ;) The descent sucked and wasn't very safe. Don't be fooled and stick to the West ridge on the way down as long as you can.
