East Summit - NE ridge from Nelson Lake

I was considering walking the ridgeline out to the middle and west summits, but just as I arrived on the east summit, a little storm came through. After hiding from the rain for a little while under the krumholtz, I decided to just head down because the sky was still looking a bit threatening. Upon further reflection, I think that even though the east summit is highest, the name Bare Peak might be attatched to the middle/west summits because of the view of the north face. Next time I'm in the area, I'll be sure to walk the whole ridge.

Three Summit Day  Sucess!

29sep09 - Began from the Nelson Lake Trailhead and followed the northeast ridge to the east summit of Bare Peak. I continued westward along the ridge to both the middle and west summits. The west summit is on the Montana/Idaho state line. Descended by reversing my route.

26sep06 - The route from the Nelson Lake Trailhead and up the northeast ridge-crest is a good one. The going is mostly hiking and Class 2, with some Class 3 once you're on the ridge.

I made a scree descent from the ridge which saved time, but I'd never try that scree for an ascent without a good solid snow cover.
