Started from Hoosier Pass at 5AM. Took East Ridge to summit North Star. Connected to Wheeler, then to Clinton, then to McNamee, then to Traver. Descended into basin and took 4WD road back. Back at car around 1:45PM. No wind and lots of sun. Actually started to pour, hail, and storm as soon as I got back. The crux of this route is the headwall along the ridge to Wheeler. This ridge rapidly changes from Class 2 to 3 to 4. Trust no rock because there are lots of loose holds. Also, lots of spider webs along the ridge past the headwall. If you hate spiders as much as me, it may make you turn around.
This peak was in the way between Traver and Clinton, so it got tagged. Trip report.
With Michelle. Light snow on ground, brisk fall wind on summits and ridge. Mostly sunny, no precip. I say "Pseudo" because I went up the east ridge of Clinton too early and climbed some other unnamed summit which was pretty fun and actually higher than Traver.
Traver to Clinton and down to Weeler Lakes
Lot of snow up there. Brought skis and left it below Traver.
With Traver and Clinton
Did this via CT Clipper route starting from Clinton Peak. This was barely a bump on the ridge; very surprised it got a name on the map.
Nice bump on the way to Clinton.
Nice traverse...summitted Clinton first
Nice loop from Montgomery Reservoir. Started with Lincoln, ended with Traver. The road wasn't a ton of fun to walk for the first couple miles though..
Big puddles on the road. A lot of 4WDs. Nice views of nearby peaks.
Clinton, McNamee and Traver peaks traverse.
The wife, dog and I finally made a successful climb of Clinton, McNamee and Traver after getting stormed off on a previous attempt.
What a mess the summit of this 'blip' on a ridge is. Prolly a bad place to be during a T-storm.
McNamee has a page.

Part of the Traver-Clinton traverse. Views of a big strip mine on the west side.
