Ridge Run From Cardiff to Twin lakes  Sucess!

Far exceeded my expectations...the single track from the summit to Twin Lakes Pass area is really good...wildflowers were off the hook. Killer day!

Free from crowds  Sucess!

Great hike to the summit and east along the ridge on this Labor Day. All trail heads were overflowing, but only saw one couple on this hike. Been here a few times before.

whoops...  Sucess!

Accidentally climbed it while trying to summit Mount Superior and Monte Cristo. Fun ridge to climb on.

Re: Flagstaff Mountain

What class rating would you say the ridge between flagstaff and honeycomb is (summer)? Trail or scrambling?

West Ridge Route  Sucess!

Started in Alta. From Cardiff Pass followed the ridge East to Flagstaff. Great sections of scrambling up to the false summit. From Flagstaff followed the ridge North to point 10,561.

South slopes  Sucess!

Nice afternoon hike. Went on to true highpoint on Reed and Benson ridge. Enough snow to ease my descent with some glissades.

The peak has some fairly interesting bedrock for a geologist, especially the traverse to R&B highpoint.

Cardiff Pass  Sucess!

Flagstaff was short and fun with lots of beautiful wildflowers and an old mine. I wish I had climbed Cardiff while up there but maybe next time along the way to Superior/MC.

#2 - 7/15/17 - trail run up Cardiff then along the ridge to Grizzly Gulch

Flagstaffs  Sucess!

Left Alta at 6:20am. Climbed north to a bump on the ridge east of Flagstaff. Traversed the ridge to Flagstaff and over it to the Reed and Benson Ridge Highpoint. Retraced my route back to Alta by 8:45am.

Flagstaff and 10561  Sucess!

Cardiff pass to Flagstaff and Peak 10561. Fun scrambling on ridge Northeast of pass. Stayed mostly true to the ridge to make it a 4th class endeavor. Looks possible to make the ridge a class 2 with route finding to be faster. Snow most of the way. Glissade descent on Sothern slopes of Flagstaff.

Mountain Air  Sucess!

Hiked with a cousin and friend. Went up Cardiff pass and scrambled up the east slope to reach the summit. Continued on north across Reed and Benson ridge to get the higher unnamed peak north of Flagstaff. Hiked down the ridge due south of Flagstaff. Wild Flowers were in full bloom. Couldn't get better than that.

Flagstaff Mountain  Sucess!

Started from Alta and took the wrong ridge. Ended up on top of a peak to the east of Flagstaff. Took the ridge to Flagstaff and then continued on to Cardiff Pass and hiked back to Alta. Nice hike with amazing views of all my favorite peaks in LCC.

boycott Alta!  Sucess!

Have skied off Flagstaff from various points on its east and north ridges into Days Fork, and have also skied Toledo. I'm livid at the prospect of Alta putting a ski lift here.
