Very fun hike/climb from Old Snowy - never been in a glacial moat before this so great first time experience.
Cool traverse from Old Snowy. Through the arch and down the ridge. We went through the moat on the glacier. Pretty sketchy this time of year. Class 3/4 climb out of it back to the ridge on rock that just pulled out of the mountain. After that, easy up to the summit though.
Lots of boulder scrambling. Near the top if you think you’ve hit a dead end (a 40’ vertical rock wall), descend about 50-100 feet and look towards the rock wall to your side; there will be a path leading to the other side, and another rocky slope you will be able to scramble to top via. Absolutely gorgeous view; well worth the effort!
Three peaks in a day.
This was a club climb, combined with a summit of Old Snowy.
A nice, easy fun peak.
This was a great summit! Stayed on a ledge in Cispus basin, one of the best camp sites I've ever had. Trip report here.
Did Ives, skipped Old Snowy since I did it as a Boy Scout, then off to Hawkeye. Good loop.
Up Snowgrass Flat trail, down Berry Patch trail, 10.5 hours car to car.
