We hiked up Jobs Sister from the the ridge between Jobs Sister and Freel Peak. Basically no snow on the mountain besides very small patches. None of the patches were near us. We descended very quickly via the east side of Jobs Sister and Freel. Thank God for the sandy slopes. It was like skiing down the mountain!
Perfect way to spend a Friday the 13th. Completed an ~8 mile loop from the end of Road 051 to Jobs Peak then traversed to Jobs Sister Peak and then back to the car. 1-2 feet of snow above 9000' with some postholing, but the views and fall colors were phenomenal
We added a quick scramble up to Job's Sister after a great mountain bike ride to Star Lake from Heavenly's Stagecoach Lodge.
My first "double bag" with Freel Peak. Found a $1 bill in the register box with instructions to sign & leave at my next peak which I did (White Mtn Peak 08/13).
Freel, Jobs Sister and Jobs triplet.
Dan and I hiked this peak from Star Lake, where we were camped. The steep ridge from Star Lake still had some snow. It was quite a windy day but clear and beautiful. I enjoyed seeing all the tiny alpine plants. Many of them were blooming. We hiked to Freel Peak's summit from there.
One more time on July 20, 2010 with my husband. Instead of returning to the Armstrong Pass trailhead, I hiked down to our house in South Lake Tahoe. (My husband drove the car back since he had to work.)
Came over from Freel, too lazy to do Job's Peak.
Climbed from Faye-Luther trailhead in the Carson Valley. There was still a lot of snow left.
I was out in Sacramento for a job interview, and randomly picked this mountain out of a tour book! The views were incredible. I didn't see another living soul the entire morning.
Climbed Freel, Jobs Sister, and Jobs from Armstrong Pass
No snow on the south side. Very little on northern aspects.
This is a very easy hike from Freel Peak, and well worth the little bit of extra effort to reach.
Freel-Jobs Sister-Jobs Peak snowshoe outing with Bob. Very enjoyable weekend.
My first 10. Did Freel, Job's and Job's Sister day hike. Excellent hike, terrible headache
From the end of FS road 051 I headed through the woods and emerged at the saddle between Jobs Peak and Jobs Sister. I decided against Jobs and headed up through the scree to the summit of his sister. I then headed over to Freel (the main reason for the trip) and then cross country back to the car from the saddle between Freel and Jobs Sister encountering a large bear along the way.
Since I was solo, I called my wife from the summit. She asked, "Where are you?" Without thinking I simply responded, "On top of Jobs Sister." There was silence on the other end until I realized what I said and then added emphatically, "That's the name of the peak!!!!"
An enjoyable spring snowshoe with Freel and Jobs. Trip Report
Beautiful day hike which included Freel, Job's Sister and Jobs. We only saw one hiker all day and had fun scrambling up Freel south side (lot's of snow left)
