Road trip! Josh and I did Hidden/East, Aneroid, Dollar Ridge, and Pete's Point. Trip report
What's this talk about a tram?
quick hike up from the saddle after climbing Aneroid. Not much to this mountain but excellent views to Cusick Mountain. Tenderfoot trailhead highly recommended.
Hiked the North Ridge from near Dollar Lake after descending from a traverse of East Peak, Hidden Peak, and Aneroid Mountain via the Mount Howard tram. Descended the East Fork Trail to Wallowa Lake. The tram's extended summer hours provided an earlier start than otherwise.
Easy hike up from the Aneroid/dollar saddle with Bob and Caleb. Long hike back to Tenderfoot....
After a morning summit of Aneroid Peak with the "Masters of Oregon P2K" (Dennis, Bob, and Ken) I followed Dennis and Bob across the saddle and up to the summit of this nice little peak. Long hike back to the Tenderfoot TH.
Was surprised by the views from this peak. Easy hike up the northeast ridge of Dollar Peak. This was the final peak of the day and I wasn't disappointed. I sat at the high point, signed the register, and enjoyed the views down the E Fork Wallowa River then made the traverse to the west to Tenderfoot Pass. I set up a camp below Pete's Point for the eve then walked up Pete's the next day.
Supposed to be a rest day at camp but I got bored at Dollar Lake and hiked up to check out this ridge. Didn't know it was a summit but found a small plastic container with a register so I signed it. Weird huge reddish crickets at the summit along with tons of grasshoppers and flying ants. Descended a talus gully about halfway along the ridge back to Dollar Lake.
Pat and I climbed this on our way back to Dollar Lake from the summit of Pete's Point. We crossed meadows on the south side, then ascended a gulley to the main col west of the summit. We followed the ridge to the summit, then descended to camp at Dollar Lake via the east ridge.
I hiked in from Tenderfoot Trailhead with a couple friends and set up camp at Dollar Lake. We summited Aneroid that night, and my friends decided they were too tired to attempt any other peaks the next day. I set out alone in the morning to hit Pete's Point and attempted to traverse the N slopes of Dollar Ridge... bad idea. I maded it over to Petes and decided to hit up Dollar Ridge on the way back instead of decending into the basin and hiking back up to the lake. I was glad I did as it had some great views from the summit.
Climbed with clam. Read our adventure with five day five person trip report.
We decided to climb this peak from our camp at Dollar Lake to watch the sunset. The view from the summit was amazing.
