Amazing in late-July when the flowers and marmots are in full bloom...I probably saw twenty marmots running around me.

Route Climbed: East slopes from Grizzly Gulch Trailhead Date Climbed: July 24, 2001  Sucess!

This is considered a "classic" approach because of its beauty. A bit longer than the approach from American Basin, but well worth it in my opinion. A very scenic approach as well as a superb summit view. You can't see a road or a city from the summit.... only mountains for 360 degrees.

A easy hike but well worth it in July for the mountain flowers.

Route Climbed: Grizzly Gulch Date Climbed: 6/30/2001  Sucess!

I actually climbed Handies yesterday as I post this. There was still a lot of snow, so I think that made the hike more difficult than it would be normally. It was my first climb, and I had a bad headache afterward, but I did get a lot of cool pictures from the summit.
