Good snow conditions. Good coverage, but not quite enough for snowshoes. South Face had good accumulation. I would imagine this to be a fun ski descent. Contemplated the idea of linking the West Ridge of Quandary. Not today!
Took the standard route up, and the upper ridge back down. saw only one other couple that day.Awesome day in the mountains. I may have to stay off the over crowded fourteeners, from now on.
Up the Southeast ridge from the Blue Lake TH, then over to Drift. Great day with both summits to myself.
Climbed Fletcher with my 13 year old boy. Beautiful area. Great scrambling on the red route option displayed on the SP route page.
nice quick hike. Still a little snow along the way.
Very nice hike!
I climbed with my "usual suspect" companions
The beers at the trail head topped off a fun day
2nd summit of Fletcher.
nice day of running around up in this whole area....ended up on top of fletcher..
the wildflowers are really goin off :0
Left from Blue Lakes and climbed up the ridge to the left of the basin to avoid excessive snow in the basin. Couldn't avoid snow near the summit.
Awesome hike up the valley but gaining the ridge was absolutely brutal. Nothing but scree. My poor Labrador made it all the way up. See trip report.
Fun solo from Blue Lakes.
Solo- nice trail to Fletcher. Not a cloud to be seen. Headed over to Drift Peak next.
I saw enough of Mayflower Gulch this winter so decided to get this one from the other side in a short day.
A 12-hour day, much more difficult (and fun) than expected.
Fun snow climb up the SE ridge. A little exposure made things more interesting.
Traversed the ridge from Quandary, then dropped down off the ridge and climbed Drift Peak. Fun day.
Fun snow climb w/astrobassman, cheeseburglar and a couple of his friends. Great weather and amazing views.
This was my first climb of Fletcher. I also climbed Drift that day. I retuned to Fletcher on 8-3-02 & 9-19-04.
