Traverse from Heather Lake to Dicks Pass out out of Glen Alpine.
Nice clear warm fall day.
Pics are here.
on the way to the crystal range, via dicks and maggie's peaks
Great scrambling up N Ridge from Dicks Peak. Mostly class 2 with a move or two of class 3 from the notch. Nobody on summit and only encountered one person on Dicks. Great view of all of Desolation.
Dayhike from Glen Alpine TH. After climbing Mt. Tallac traversed the ridge to Dicks Pk. Continued on to Jacks Pk and then Pyramid Pk before returning to the car which made for a very long day in a great area which I hadn't visited yet.
From the Eagle Falls TH, up Dicks Pass then Dicks Peak over to Jacks.
Traversed from Mount Tallac over to Dicks Peak and then on to Jacks Peak.
After deciding the snow conditions on Pyramid weren't stable enough, we headed up to Mosquito Pass and followed just below the south ridge up to the summit of Jack's Peak on much firmer snow.
Traverse from Dick's Peak, made even better by the remnants of some early season snowfall. More forecasted for Tuesday, WooHoo!
The first stop in a solo 20+ mile Jacks->Dicks->Tallac talus traverse from Glen Alpine. A gorgeous day in every respect. Lots of talus on this hike.
From Dicks Pass, up to Dicks Peak and easy traverse over to Jacks Peak.
Together with Derbilly from our campsite in Halfmoon Cirque.
Up Dick's over to Jack's and a fun Glissade down to Half Moon lake.
From Mosquito Pass.
