NE Ridge  Sucess!

4/8/07 - Spring slog up the northwest ridge from Horn Creek TH. Nasty wind & blowing snow above treeline. Zero views from summit.

2/5/17 - Winter ascent of northwest ridge from just shy of the Horn Creek TH. Nasty wind up high, 50+ mph. At least there were good views this time, though I could barely brace myself well enough to take photos from the summit!

The long and windy ridge  Sucess!

Man! That ridge felt really long. The forecast was for cloudy and 10-15 mph winds. I was hoping that would keep the snow firm enough so I wouldn't be in post-hole hell. Well, the forecast was wrong. Very sunny and much windier. Great! Still a pretty nice day.

NE Ridge from Horn Creek  Sucess!

Northeast Ridge from the Horn Creek trailhead, hike about 3 miles down the Rainbow Trail to Macey Lakes trail, cross Macey Creek and then bushwhack up the NE ridge to treeline. About 12 1/2 mile RT, but all the elevation gain is in the last 3 miles so it is a steep one!
