Hough Peak  Sucess!

Climbed with Macomb, South Dix and East Dix via the Dix Trail from the Elk Lake Lodge. Traversed over from South Dix across the Hogback to Hough's windy summit. Instead of backtracking, we descended via the herd path along through Lillian Brook.

From Dix  Sucess!

Had a hard time finding the herd path from Dix, but we used the GPS and eventually bushwhacked our way to the summit. Snowy and steep up top with loose snow that we used crampons for. #33/46. : )

Huff Stuff  Sucess!

Descended the Beckhorn ridge to Hough. Descent trail, would rather go down it than up. The Lillian Brook escape route has been cleared of blowdown, it's open and recognizable behind the Hough col. You can also go up this as an alternate access to the Dix Range. Perfect weather, perfect day. Contrary to the description, there are good views from the summit.

Route Climbed: along ridge herdpath Date Climbed: 7/1496 and 1/17/98  Sucess!

I've been over this peak in the warm months several times. In the winter once, so far. We summited at sunset and bushwhacked down to the trail (west) in the dark. It was a great adventure.
