Up Willow Creek on consolodated snowpack from 89. Tagged the summit (cold and extremely windy on top), then over to Jobs Sister and Jobs Peak.

First trip via Trout Creek October 1, 2006
Up via the Tahoe Rim Trail route, down the direct route in the gully. Very cold and windy on top, ran over the Job's Sister while I was there.

Trout Creek TH  Sucess!

Hiked this with the County Highpointers group. We ran into numerous parties ascending or descending the peak in beautiful weather. The direct descent down to Fountain Place along the obvious gully from the saddle is definitely the way to go. It also will go as an ascent route if you don't mind hiking up through the sandy sections. It will save time for a party who perseveres and is in good shape.

Stagecoach - Freel - Job's Peak Canyon

Out of Kingsbury to Star Lake; up Freel; descent towards Job's Sister; right hand flank to lip of Job's Peak Canyon - descent down through Job's Peak Canyon to trail head on Foothill Road near Minden/Gardnerville.

Suggestion - descent through the Canyon is quite challenging - off trail, rock-hopping, manzanita, steep grades. Keep to the right hand on the fringes of the pine trees wherever possible. Gloves/long trousers are useful. Expect 2-4 hours depending on fitness, fatigue, etc to decend completely.

Horse Meadow  Sucess!

Not as bad a slog from the south as I had envisioned. Approach from Horse Meadow made for an efficeint of trifecta of Freel, Job's Sister and Job.

Triple Play  Sucess!

Bagged Freel, Jobs Sister and Jobs Peak in a single hike starting from the Jobs peak trail head. A recent snow had left approx 6 inches of snow which remained on north facing slopes. Beautiful views of Tahoe!

Climbed via trout creek  Sucess!

Use trail is actually mostly very clear, with only a few muddy/overgrown sections. But a nice and "straight up" no nonsense route that takes you to a truly A+ view.

Fun  Sucess!

IT was fun

Freel  Sucess!

Nice hike up via Armstrong Pass, though haze dulled the views of Tahoe. Then proceeded to Job's Peak, before returning via Freel.

winter solo

GPS went out in the valley between Freel, Jobs Peak, and Jobs Sister. Wound up half-climbing Jobs Peak and then having to trek out after dark.
