Fun scramble and loop day hike.
This summit caught my eye while climbing Sawtooth Peak in October 2009. One year later I came back for this one, and it did not disappoint. The small summit seems to hover above the Monarch lakes.
The rock is surprisingly good on Mineral peak. Great little scramble.
Camped at Crystal L. Fun scramble with beautiful weather.
A fun little scramble from upper monarch lake.
A beautiful view from a nice climb. Now I want to climb other peaks in the area!
Camped at Crystal Lake. View of Empire Mountain from the summit was impressive. Also climbed peaks 11600 and 12109.
