N Ridge from Price  Sucess!

A short walk from Mt Price. The view was well worth it! There's a nice spot at the very top rock to sit and hang your feet over desolation wilderness.

Winter from Pyramid  Sucess!

Up Pyramid from Rocky Creek, then over to Agassiz and Price following the ridge. Snow was pretty hardpacked and very icy on the north side of Pyramid. Never needed snowshoes all day, just crampons. Extremely windy, below freezing, and great views.

Pyramid-Agass-Price Traverse  Sucess!

Second peak of the day, on a traverse of the "big three" from Lyons TH. View of Agassiz in profile is spectacular (esp from Price). SE wall is an excellent scramble, but we came down it--not up.

Like a Jungle Gym  Sucess!

Along with Price and Pyramid, Agassiz was like my own private gym. One summer my friend and I helped the back country ranger carry out pieces of a single engine airplane. The engine is probably still there. It had smashed into the east wall of the Crystal range. We also helped the ranger hike out trash. It's amazing how much crap people leave behind.

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.

Lyons Creek Trail  Sucess!

Climbed from Sylvia Lake. Didn't see a soul the entire day.

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.
