Atlantic Peak  Sucess!

March 26

Kessler and I snowshoed up Mayflower Gulch and then up Pacific Creek and found a campsite at 11,560 feet. The trail conditions were great up Mayflower Gulch, but the route up Pacific Creek was much more difficult since the recent warm weather made for deteriorated snow conditions and I kept punching through.

March 27

After a sleepless night, we woke up and headed up Atlantic Peak. I had a lot of joint pain, perhaps from a previous sickness. We slowly made it up the West Ridge to the summit of Atlantic Peak though. It was an interesting climb as well.

After enjoying the summit, we packed up and headed back down to the trailhead.

Twice  Sucess!

10/1/05 - Mayflower Gulch approach. Traversed from Crystal and Pacific. New snow made talus hopping difficult & annoying.

1/7/17 - West ridge from Mayflower Gulch in frigid temps. Descended into Pacific Creek from the Atlantic/Pacific saddle (steep slopes were wind-scoured).

Cold and windy west ridge  Sucess!

Very windy day, 3 other parties turned around, but I am stubborn and went on. It did calm down in the evening, great sunset and return in the dark (started late around 12:40).

WR w/ Michelle  Sucess!

Enjoyable route, not really exposed, was windy but fall potential is low. Fall the seasonhowever, was in full swing. Willows are easy to navigate but I bet it is a swamp in Spring.

From Pacific  Sucess!

Pretty straightforward. Descended the west ridge a bit, then an epic glissade north into what must be a hellish moraine in the summer. Trip report.

Thundersnow  Sucess!

It was originaly a nice, blue fall day, very cold in the morning. I started late but everything seemed good. Until out of the blue sky, stormclouds formed within 30 minutes it started to snow and I heard several thunders. Thundersnow. Thats why I gave up Pacific.

With Pacific  Sucess!

Traversed over from Pacific after climbing Pacific's West Ridge. Descent was miserable as we left the snowshoes in the car.

Atlantic via Atlantis  Sucess!

Summitted via the Atlantis Couloir today with friend Jake. The snow was great and went to within about 10 feet of the top of the couloir. Descent via the saddle with Pacific - still enough snow to glissade from the saddle.
