Route Climbed: South side route Date Climbed: January 29, 2006  Sucess!

After pulling sleds down Oneidas St. we benefited from snowmobile trails to reach ~8200' before ever having to carry our packs. Summit day consisted of mucho postholing with snowshoes until we finally reached the ridge. The incredibly low cloud ceiling limited our views, but we could still see into Desolation and down into Carson City. Had there been more time we would have traversed to the summit of Jobs Sister, but the weather and postholing failed to cooperate with that goal!

Route Climbed: South Route from Horse Meadow Date Climbed: 01Nov2005

This was my first time up. Went with Jay and Chris. Beautiful day, but extremely windy on top! South side virtually snow free. North side had 6" to 18" covering the trail. Returned to Horse Meadow via the TRT. Great hike!

We hiked this as a bachelor hike for my friends wedding. It was a beautiful day and lake Tahoe looked amazing from the summit.

Route Climbed: Armstrong Pass Date Climbed: Sept 27, 2005  Sucess!

Ascended via Armstrong Pass on the TRT. It looks like the road that leads to Trout Creek is on private property and as there were trail crews in the area I didn't want to chance it. I descened via Trout Creek and there were people on the private property at Fountain Place. I took an old dirt road leading west to avoid them so as not to get busted.



The weather was really crappy. Foggy and drizzly. The area got about 2-4 inches on new snow the previous night. Needless to say there were no views what-so-ever. I was planning on continuing on to Jobs Sister but couldn't really get excited beacuse of the weather. Maybe next time.

Great views of Tahoe. You can just about kick steps in the scree on the south side. Would like to try it in the winter.

Route Climbed: Armstrong Pass Date Climbed: July, 2000  Sucess!

Made part of my marathon training running up certain mountains at Lake Tahoe when I lived in Incline Village. This trip included trail runners and tons of water. I also napped Job's Sister on the same run. Tahoe has some of the best trail running anywhere in the world. Cheers!

Route Climbed: Ridge traverse from Armstrong Pass Date Climbed: 23-Jan-2005  Sucess!

Started from Road 051 on snowshoes, camped at 9200' on ridge above Armstrong Pass, then headed up ridge and traversed to summit, avoiding the rock towers enroute.



Early morning steep snow was hard enough that I used aluminum crampons and an ice axe, but by 10am it was soft enough to kick steps in most places (where there was still snow)



Fantastic weather - almost windless, no clouds to speak of. Only downside was that Lake Tahoe was socked in by fog.

Route Climbed: Trout Creek Date Climbed: August 21, 2004  Sucess!

Took the Oneidas road to Fountain Place and climbed up the steep trail to the east and the saddle with the TRT. Followed a blue ribbon route to the peak. Then we took the use trail to Job's Sister and then descended the ridge line to Star Lake where we swam. From there we took the TRT back to the saddle and back to the cars. On the way back out the gate was locked and we had to wait to have it opened. The owner of the private land was unhappy with us for tresspassing. See my addition on getting there.

Route Climbed: Armstrong Pass, South Slope Date Climbed: 7/10/04  Sucess!

Hiked from 89, hooked up w/ Tahoe Rim trail (hairpin left just after the second bridge, trail turns to single track, then another right at a triple juncture), over Armstrong Pass to the saddle, then right up sand to the summit. Decended the south side to Horse Meadow and out on the road. Have a feeling I should not have been walking down the south slope because of an endangered flower. It was a lot quicker though. Ooops....

Second time on Freel. Took the longer (Tahoe Rim trail) the last time and didn't reach the true summit. Great views from the top.
