Fun scramble  Sucess!

Made in Tahoe and I walked along the Echo Lake trail and headed up at the cabin with the blue galvanized steel roof. The route got more fun the higher we went. I'll have to do this again sometime.

South East Ridge  Sucess!

Lot of snow/ice on the rock making it a little more exciting. Saw avalanche activity on ralston and mount price.

Many times  Sucess!

I hiked this one a lot with my grandparents when I was growing up. Usually we'd traverse from Echo Peak, sometimes from the Echo Chalet. My favourite descent was down the loose gullies just west of the cliffs. Great place to be a kid!

South East Ridge  Sucess!

Had a great day of climbing. There is still quite a bit of snow on the mountain. It was pretty icy in some areas. The views of Lake Tahoe and the surrounding peaks were amazing.

Route Climbed: From Echo Peak and down Southeast Ridge Date Climbed: March 22, 2003  Sucess!

Snowshoed from Johnson Pass Rd to Echo Lakes and Echo Peak then down the ridge to Flagpile Peak. By the time I was at Flagpole, the day was spent, the weather was changing for the worse and the wind was nearly blowing me away. This led to a more challenging night time descent via the Southeast Ridge than I had expected.
