Route Climbed: Northeast Slopes from McCollough Gulch Date Climbed: August 17, 2005  Sucess!

Snuck in a quick ascent of this peak in an otherwise bad weather cycle. Windy day. The hike up to the peak is really beautiful.

Route Climbed: Traverse from Pacific Date Climbed: July 4, 2005  Sucess!

Climbed Atlantic as part of a long loop including Helen, Father Dyer, Crystal & Pacific. Loved the scramble from Helen to Father Dyer! We finished with a traverse back east along Pacific's east ridge.

Route Climbed: NW Ridge from Mayflower Gulch Date Climbed: November 2005  Sucess!

Beautiful day out in winter. Halfway up the ridge we were socked in by a snowstorm decreasing visibility. When my water started to freeze on the summit it was time to head down!

Route Climbed: SW Face, descent NW ridge Date Climbed: July 2003  Sucess!

We climbed off trail up a loose and unpleasant gully (not recommended) and descended the more pleasant NW ridge back into the Mayflower Creek area. Climbed with Josh Ramey (ColoradoJosh).

Route Climbed: McCullough Gulch Trailhead Date Climbed: 09/2004  Sucess!

I didn't see anyone while climbing this peak which was a treat .. just me and the mountain ...the East face contains some really loose scree

Route Climbed: Northeast Face Date Climbed: August 1 ,1987  Sucess!

Climbing up the trail from McCullough Gulch, you encounter a huge boulderfield at the base of the crux pitch, a rocky scramble to the saddle north of the summit. Once past this obstacle, the summit is an easy stroll to the southwest.

Route Climbed: Crystal-Pacific-Atlantic Date Climbed: November 15, 2004  Sucess!

After Crystal and Pacific Peaks, Atlantic was actually a relief: I wore my snowshoes all the way to the top. The trip down Atlantic's West Ridge, however, was tricky and dangerous w/ tons of snow and some ice. Started before sunrise this morning; didn't get out till after sunset.

TR coming soon...

Route Climbed: Northeast Face from Highway 9 Date Climbed: October 23, 2004  Sucess!

Summited after the most recent snow storm. The head wall had about 5 inches of soft snow over a hard, icy base layer. Decided to go from the highway for a more enjoyable trip with a friend. Also took in Pacific Peak.

Route Climbed: From Pacific Date Climbed: 6/22/2003  Sucess!

It seems like a lifetime ago that we climbed Atlantic. It was only one year ago tomorrow. We climbed Pacific first from Mayflower and then did the traverse over to Atlantic. Long day and I remember the ridge coming down Atlantic had some tricky snow patches. We also wallowed in the willows trying to get back to the car. Great day though.

Route Climbed: Mayflower Gulch to Crystal, Pacific, then Atlantic. Date Climbed: June 6, 2004  Sucess!

Still a fair amount of snow in the valleys, but the trio made a great day hike.

Route Climbed: Traverse from Pacific, then down the West Ridge Date Climbed: June 7th 2001  Sucess!

A fun route to be sure. The ascent of Pacific followed by a visit to the highest lake in north America (Pacific Tarn) followed by topping out on Atlantic Peak, followed by a descent of Atlantic's airy west ridge, is a sojourn not to be missed. Jon
