Jogged up (literally) to the summit since I was at the saddle. Easy repeat.
The smoke from the California & Utah fires was Horrible. It was actually hard to breathe. Out of 6 planned peaks today, we did this one and called it quits. Hard to breathe.
Combined with a nice ridge walk to Galena
Original plan was different, but the rain changed it all. We slept (with my son) at the Stony Pass, it rained all night and I went for the peak during the break in rain.
The views were mostly cloudy, but still very spectacular.
Wildflowers around Stony pass are amazing!
Stony Pass provides a nice high access for several peaks, I did Sheep and Greenhalgh then drove to the pass for Canby and "Stony Pass" before driving back home.
For the main course we climbed South Lookout Peak & "V5" followed by lunch in Silverton. Then took advantage of the lightning-less afternoon and climbed Canby & "Stony Pass Peak" from Stony Pass. There were sheep grazing everywhere and scary guard dogs watching over them. We had to walk through the sheep herd. When we were on Canby, we could see that all the sheep had gathered around my 4runner! Wierd! These have to be the easiest 13ers in the state - about half an our each from the pass! Great views, big bang for your buck.
Short pleasant hike. Occasional vehicles on the pass but no one on the mountain.
