Crystal Range Trio  Sucess!

Up from Sylvia to Pyramid then along the ridge connecting Pyramid - Agassiz - Price. From Price down to Lyons Lake and then back to Sylvia. Way fun adventure of a ridge with overhangs, peaklets, knobs, pine labrynths, and views to absorb. Good times with J.A. Agassiz was the best part.

Funny time of year  Sucess!

right after the storm accompanied by the cold snap, stepped out of the car at Lyon's Lake TH to 31 degrees F and a cloudless day. 3-6 inches of snow on approach, some very crusty sections, frozen snowmelt streams with water seen running underneath (very trippy). LOTTA wind near and at the summit; summit block and the way up to it covered with snow, and my companions left for lunch rather than spotting me for the descent. good times.

Traverse from Mt Price  Sucess!

Bagged this with Kane on the way back down from Price. Cross country to Smith Lake where Kane fell and broke his arm. The views on this hike make it well worth doing.

Route Climbed: Lyons Creek Trail Date Climbed: September 8, 2004  Sucess!

A Sierra Club outing. We decided to climb Mt. Price first via Lyons Lake. This route is better than ascending Agassiz from Sylvia Lake as one avoids ascending a steep screen slope. Elapsed time for both peaks was 8 hrs 40 min.

Route Climbed: West approach from Sylvia Lake via cross country route Date Climbed: Sometime in the early 1980s  Sucess!

I took the long easy trail to Slyvia Lake and headed up the west slope going cross country, picking my way up the easiest way. I got on the west saddle of the peak and followed it to the summit block. Great rock formations at the top to explore.

Route Climbed: Lake Aloha - east face to 9696 - Crystal Range north to Agassiz Date Climbed: July 31, 2004  Sucess!

From west side of Lake Aloha climbed up ridge towards 9696 (between Agassiz & Pyramid). Traversed right on east face of slope to summit of Crystal Range at ridge "bump" between 9696 and Agassiz (class 3 scramble). Traversed northwest on west face of Crystal Range slope until at bottom of Agassiz overhang. Cut left along overhang (class 3 scramble) until you find notch with old pine tree. Slipped through notch to back side of Agassiz overhang, turned right and found summit boulders to climb up onto the top.
