Long day  Sucess!

This was supposed to be both Dicks Peak and Jacks Peak, but the wind slowed us down. A small group was able to tag both.

From Glen Alpine  Sucess!

Day hike loop past Susie Lake, then up Jacks and across to Dicks. Fun day - 8 hrs 15 min. Had to deal with some snow in a chute up to Jacks and also on the descent from Dicks.
Beautiful day. Only saw one other person in the back country.
Solo.
Also, repeated the same route with John, except we dropped down from Jacks. John did not like the traverse.

Near Miss

Wonderful climb, saw lots of interesting wildlife. Off trail and a steep scramble at the top forced us down just off summit.

A great scramble  Sucess!

From Glen Alpine Springs, the ridge at the end to the summit was a nice scramble with a few class 3 moves.

Inspiration pt  Sucess!

Dayhike from Inspiration point. Perfect weather. Couldn't find a register, but there were two full waterbottles at the summit -- weird.

Backpacked It  Sucess!

4 day backpacking trip through Desolation Wilderness. Definitely more challenging to climb with a large pack, but we still made it! Then we traversed over to Jacks! Long fun windy day.

Ice climbing on Dicks?  Sucess!

Yes it's true we hiked ice gear all the way into Dicks Peak because there was nowhere else to find ice in Tahoe. Turns out the extremely low snow and cold temps created very firm snow conditions (what there was of it) and a thick WI2 flow in a gully on the right side of the north face about 40 meters long, which we enjoyed. I don't expect to see this ever again!

Tallac, Dicks & Jacks traverse  Sucess!

Nice hike and great views on E side of Crystal Range with quite a bit of snow still lingering from previous week's storm. Pretty windy but it only made it bearable; very hot when calm.
