Rewarding summit views make up for an otherwise lackluster trail slog.
Still a lot of snow. Snow level at 9200 ft. Creek crossing is hard at current time.
Up the west face from Lewis Creek and Lewis Lake. Descended the south ridge to the Kennedy Pass Trail.
Overnight backpack from Lewis Creek TH camping at Frypan Meadow. Climbed Kennedy on Day 1, then Harrington on Day 2.
Quick Monarch Divide trip that included Goat, State, Kennedy, and Harrington.
With Harrington and Hogback. Trip Report.
An easy romp from Kennedy Pass. Sweet views from the top in all directions. A nice side trip while doing the Volcanic Lakes Loop.
Started at Deer Cove and made good time to Frypan Meadow. Set up camp and continued on to Kennedy's summit. Snow from about 9000 feet. Spectacular weather and views, very warm though. Lewis Creek had swollen a bit for the return. Climbed Harrington the next day.
