Up Willow Creek on snow from 89. Tagged Freel first, then Jobs Sister then Jobs Peak. Very cold and windy all day.
First trip October 1, 2006
Up via the Tahoe Rim Trail route, down the direct route in the gully. Very cold and windy on top. Love the views of Tahoe from the top, looks like it is ready to just spill over into Nevada.
Made a loop from forest service road 51-A (Horse Meadows) to Jobs Peak, Jobs Sister and Freel Peak.
Linked with Freel and Job's Peak from FR51
Late start so did not complete 3 peeks of Freel, Job's Sister and Job...have to settle with Freel and Job's Sister for now.
Up from Armstrong Pass and FR51.
Tagged Trimmer then backtracked over to Freel/Jobs Sister/Jobs
Descended the Jobs Pk trail back to Horse Meadow and then followed the forest road back to the TRT trailhead.
Pics are here
3x for Freel/JS, 2x for Jobs, 1x for Trimmer
Approach from Horse meadow made for a quick trifecta of Freel, Job's Sister and Job.
This was the 2nd peak in a 3 peak day starting from the Jobs Peak trail head. 6 inches of snow remaining from a recent storm made for a beautiful hike.
After Freel, we stolled on over to Jobs Sister. We were gonna go on to Jobs Peak but decided against it. A good birthday hike.
2x, Went back up to do Jobs and decided to tag Jobs Sister/Freel while I was up there. Someone swiped the wooden peak sign in the last week. Couple thunderstorms rolled through Luther Pass during the trip.
Traverse from Freel (and then back)
Beautiful clear warm summer day.
Pics are here
Traversed the ridge from Freel. Great views from the top, almost better then Freel... Lots of butterflys on top.
Camped at Horse Meadow and hiked up to the pass between Job's sister and Job's. Ascended Job's Sister via South Face then traversed over to Freel. Dropped (scree ski) down Free's south face back to car.
Day hiked the Tahoe Triple Crown from the south. It was very windy and cold, but we missed the first winter storm by a week. A light dusting of snow and high winds made for some spectacular spin-drifts along the ridge.
Did a day hike to bag Tahoe Triple Crown - Freel Peak (10,881 ft, the highest of the Tahoe peaks), Jobs Sister (second-highest, at 10,823 ft), and Jobs Peak (fourth-highest, at 10,673 ft).
This was the second stop after Freel. Cold, windy and solid ice on the northern side. Crampons would have been nice. From here over to Job's Peak. Will do this loop hike again.
Saw a large black bear lumbering down from near the summit as I was coming over from Freel. Did the loop from my car in 4.5 hours.
As long as I'm already on top of Freel... Not much of a trail going up; laughed at self and said, "the only way up is UP, so get going...."
An easy jaunt from Freel and better views too.
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!
