Did South Ingalls as a snow climb/scramble up the southeast slope
**** I lost my Garmin In Reach glissading down slopes from the South side of Ingalls Peak South - if found, please reach me, firstname.lastname@example.org ****
Otherwise - A great outing with the Mountaineers on our Compressed Scramble Course outing. Perfect weather all day. Snow began about 500 feel below Ingalls pass. The path deviates a bit from the trail but generally follows it up to the pass. We traversed towards Lake Ingalls, which is still frozen over, with slight signs of thawing around the edges. Perfect views of Mount Stuart and all ranges around, especially in the Alpine Lakes Wilderness. Took the route up the col of the North side of the peak, and descended the south scramble route. Lots of snow in good condition for step kicking. Wildflowers are out on the lower slopes.
Climbed the south ridge rock route on the north peak (fun mellow and short). Then traversed up to the south peak from the notch, looped over to Fortune then back to the car.
We bailed on the western side of the state because it was whited out and rainey for 3 days. Sio we headed to Lake Ingalls. There is supposed to be a class 4 scramble so we left the cimbing gear in the car. We tried 3 routes up Ingalls but couldn't find a class 4. We'd get close but get deadended. Beautiful vews of the lake and it was nice not being rained on. The goats were a pain through
Climbed the South Ridge (5.6) variation on Friday. Climbed the East Ridge (5.7) on Saturday with great views from Mt. Adams to the south all the way to Mt. Baker in the north. Really enjoyable positions on the peak!
Sat. in late July 2001. South Peak.
Classic south ridge. Short, fun climb but the good stuff was over too soon
Finally returned for the north peak after last season's south peak climb and north peak failed attempt. Climbing was fun and very easy.
Climbed it with Vivian D. in a day. Really fun, an equal alternative to the Tooth in a really pretty area.
Led the south ridge with Rob and Fletcher. Great climb on the last dry day of 2012. No one else on the mountain. Decided to climb the south peak afterwards and traverse the long ridge over Fortune Peak back to Ingalls Pass. Great Teanaway Peak!
It was six years after the last rockclimb and today it showed. There will be a redo here.
On our way back from climbing Stuart we stayed a night at Ingall's lake. The next morning we left our packs there and made a quick scramble up South Ingalls. Was actually surprised to find some really fun scrambling going up the gray rock chute on the north side.
Nice views from the top. Summit register needs more paper.
Started out at De Roux campground, made our way up Hawkins in a whiteout, then descended down to Gallagher Head Lake. Day two we tagged Fortune, Ingalls, and Not Hinkhouse. Lots of rime ice high up, great to get up there before the summer crowds!
fun traverse of East to north peaks with Ashley and Conrad. Great day out!
Fairly standard ascent via the gully from the notch with the north peak, and then descended in the opposite direction, which was much more direct; really made me question the reliability of the 100 Scrambles in Washington guidebook, but maybe the route she recommends makes more sense in the summer (and by that i mean August or September or whenever the gods decree it will stop snowing).

We came fully prepared to climb North Ingalls but were disappointed to see the route completely covered with rime ice and fresh snow. We did south Ingalls instead. I will be back for the north summit.
Great climb! Nothing too hard on the route but great exposure and beautiful views of Mt Stuart.
Two different trips. South Peak trip pictures HERE
North Peak attempt was in extremely cold conditions with ice in the cracks, trip report pics and map HERE
Traversed all three peaks. A great outing on good rock.
