From LOTC along with Cirrus  Sucess!

A long boulder hop starting below Lake of the Clouds. The route turns to a little 3rd class below the saddle, but nothing too difficult. A windy, but cloudless, day in the Never Summers!

Howard - Cirrus -Lead - Never Summer  Sucess!

From camp in Hitchens Gulch, climbed the unnamed peak east of Howard Mtn, Howard Mtn, Mt Cirrus, Lead Mtn, and 'Never Summer Pk' with my friend Keith. The climb from Lake of the Coulds to the unnamed peak east of Howard was snow-free even though it was north-facing and the upper Hitchens Gulch still had snow. The traverse from the unnamed peak to Howard Mtn was class 2/3.

From Lake of the Clouds  Sucess!

Like most of the Never Summer Peaks climb them when there's lots of snow.

NanitaD  Sucess!

We hiked up Hitchen's Gultch and had to post hole just below Lake of the Clouds. Because the snow in the saddle between Mt. Howard and Mt. Cirus was deep we climbed rotten skree on the south side. I said a four letter word when I realized we had only reached the false summit, but the true summit was worth the effort. We traversed from there to Mt. Cirus.
