Route Climbed: North Ridge Date Climbed: August 2000  Sucess!

North Ridge of N Peak to N Ridge Conness, car to car from Saddlebag in 9 hours.

Only challenging climbing is the downclimb on Conness, blood, gore, and death potential. If you're not comfy soloing 5.7, take a rope, and you'll probably only use it for this rap. A 100 foot rope would do it.

Route Climbed: Alpine Lake Date Climbed: September 1, 2001  Sucess!

I found this route to be mostly second class. There are a few fun third class moves along the way. BTW this is my third time on Conness. Standard route from the southeast, N ridge, and Alpine Lake. Looking for someone that wants to do W ridge.

Route Climbed: From Young Lakes Date Climbed: Aug 1, 1993  Sucess!

Stopped at White Mtn on the way up, but no more than class 2 the whole route. Mosquitos were nasty at the lakes, but no problem while hiking. Took a class 2-3 chute down on the southwest side and stopped at Roosevelt Lake on the way back before returning to Young Lakes. Trip Report

Route Climbed: Alpine Lake Date Climbed: September 25th, 1999

This was my third attempt from the Saddlebag Lake trailhead, I finally made it with Shubo (Steve) Dai. The first time in 1998 Devesh and I turned back from the Conness-White Mountain saddle, where there was steep snow (we had no ice axe or crampons). The second time in August 1999 Darrin and I turned back at the east ridge after running out of time. Conness glacier is an impressive sight.
