1st summit of the day, we went up from Fuller Lake , pretty good snow conditions, stellar vies from the summit!
What an interesting day. After scrambling up Golden Horn, I got to within 120' or so or Vermilion's summit following the NE Ridge. A crux filled with ice stopped me. Couldn't figure out how to bypass it. Downclimbed and traversed the east face & caught the NE Ridge above the saddle.
Hit Fuller afterwards (easily the quickest & easiest) and retraced my steps partially than plung-stepped down to the basin. The snow was very...interesting.
MY CENTENNIAL FINISHER!!!!!! :O)
last peak climbed in traverse from Golden Horn and Vermilion. Easiest of the 3.
Awesome area! With Dave B. Fuller was a 20 minute sidetrip after Golden Horn and Vermilion.
Fun day on a ridge traverse climbing Pilot Knob, Golden Horn, Vermillion Peak, and Fuller Peak.
Starting an Ice Lakes Basin traverse, via the use trail to the saddle. Trip report.
Still lots of snow; ice axe came in handy to reach the saddle. Beautiful views for minimal effort.
Climbed with Vermillion
What a rotten mess of a mountain. Still had fun though. Great views.
started with Fuller, and continued onto Vermillion and Golden Horn, easy hike although the peak looks very impressive from Fuller Lake.
not much left after vermillion
Climbed with partner while on the way to Vermillion Peak. Climbed up snow and was comfortable with hiking poles although it was steep. As others have mentioned it looks impressive from below but is just a bump on the ridge.
Made a loop over "V9", "V8", Beattie, Fuller & Vermilion. The Lake Hope area is beautiful and not to be missed. Altough the talus/scree slopes on this side of Vermilion & Fuller look horrendous, they are quite manageable.
watched the most beautiful sunrise I'd ever witnessed from the summit.
scree gets old on the way up to the saddle
Climbed as an attempt of Fuller-Vermilion-Golden Horn, but hail turned us around before Golden Horn. great views to the south and west.
Fuller looks pretty impressive from the valley below, but it's pretty much a bump on a ridge.
Climbed as part of the SP Summer Gathering, I had already been up Golden Horn earlier in the year and headed over to Vermilion and Fuller instead. Overcast morning had us worried, but it never rained on us.
From "V 8" & Beattie Peak. To Vermilion Peak & Golden Horn. 9 hours roundtrip.
Long day with Brian Bray from Trout Lake.
