Up a snow-filled chute from Swift Creek, then along the *long* ridge to Rock Lake Peak. Ugly snow conditions on the ridge made this a long day. Trip report.
This is a great day hike through beautiful country. The crest of the Salt River Range is really impressive with some colorful rock.
The glissade down was the longest and steepest glissade I have done yet. This area is majestic - the lakes are an amazing color and the surrounding area is just as beautiful. Great hike!
I have only once summited this great peak, and I need to find my old photos to remember the exact year. I scrambled up the west side from Swift Creek, a beautiful drainage below. I need to return to this gem because I live below the Salt River Range and I do a lot of hiking in these great mountains.
