From Sapphire Lake, we headed up the bouldery west slope, then enjoyed the ridge. Nice snow flurry as we were leaving the summit down the south face due to wet boulders. Hit up Huxley next.
Solo day hike via Echo Col. Pictures
27 hour c2c climb of Evolution Traverse. Section to Fiske was long.
Spicy and sometimes loose descending to the saddle, then more boulder-hopping to the summit. End of a Huxley-Warlow-Fiske traverse, which would have been more fun in the other direction. Trip report
Managed to stay about 12,400 feet or so after summitting Wallace and heading over Wallace Col, headed up one of the shallow rock ribs before the larger rib next to the Fiske Glacier. Then a quick stop at Muir Pass just before sunset en route to a nice long weekend in Ionian Basin.
With Rick and Matthew, did this as a dayhike out of Lake Sabrina, going in over Wallace Col and back out over Lamarck Col. A really fun day (except for those last few hours coming out). Trip Report
From Echo Lake went over Echo Col and summited from the east.
