Terrific Ski!  Sucess!

From South Lake parking lot was able to skin across South Lake and approached the NE chute, between Johnson and Gilbert. Simple 40 deg snow climb, then skinned right onto the summit and skied a glorious 3+ miles back across South Lake. Damn near perfect day! - Jul 5, 2022 12:02 am Date Climbed: May 21, 2022

Worst snow  Sucess!

Worst snow conditions I have ever climbed in. Like slogging through waist deep quicksand.

241 Club  Sucess!

Summitted 24 years after failed attempt in '97 with Rahil, Peter & Reza. From lowest Treasure Lake, climbed 300', 50deg snow chute NW of Pk 12,640+ to gain Gilbert's south shoulder. Shoulder is good quality talus. Dangerous post-holing last hour back to camp.

East Slope from Treasure Lakes  Sucess!

Having climbed Treasure Col last year, on a complete frozen mountain, just to climb to the unnamed peak South of the Col, I decided that I had enough of the Col and go up via the draining from Mt Johnson. The going wasn't bad, albeit long, but Mount Gilbert did not impress me much in technicality. From Gilbert I traversed to Johnson. It took 4 hour and 20 minutes from the South Lake parking lot to the summit of Gilbert.

From Treasure Col  Sucess!

This sandy route wouldn't have been so bad if one didn't have to drop a few hundred feet from the col before starting. Ah well, great views from the top!

SE slope  Sucess!

Tedious slog from Treasure Col but the views make it worth the trouble. Trip report.

Snow slog

From South Lake. Soft snow turned this into a 15-hour slog

from Treasure Col  Sucess!

Treasure Col is a loose chute and I do not like it. Boulder field is no fun.

Great skiing  Sucess!

A perfect ski outing on the NE slope. One continuous descent from the summit to South Lake. Perfect conditions all the way.

With Johnson   Sucess!

Don't think I've ever talked so much (with my dayhiking partners) than on this dayhike, one of the side effects of being a self-proclaimed and real life hermit.

East Slope from Pk 12640  Sucess!

A 3-peak day trying to beat the rain storm. Tagged Pk 12640, Gilbert and Johnson.

Southeast Slope  Sucess!

Nice outing with perfect conditions over Treasure Col and found the basin on the other side east of Mount Johnson to be well work the slightly circuitous route. Only took about half a day but really enjoyable.

North Couloir solo  Sucess!

Front-pointing in trail runners sucks. I would have been happier in boots and with two tools, but it wasn't that sketchy, and sure beats the slog from Treasure Col. Trip report

North Couloir (what else?)  Sucess!

Simul-climbed this with Robert Hanson in July in the early-mid '90s. Hard neve to actually some blue ice up high. Let a bottle of gin cooling in Treasure Lakes for martinis back at camp.

first alpine lead fall...  Sucess!

climb it late winter, first day of fishing season at South Lake. in search of ice but didn't find much. lead the 5.6 section and took my first lead fall. bled a little but nothing exciting.

Southeast slope  Sucess!

Instead of climbing Treasure Col I climbed Peak 12,600 which is to the right of the Col, Class 3, there was a register there left by an SPS party in 1981, then I did the slog up to Gilbert, then to peak 12,800 South of Gilbert, then the N. Ridge of Johnson, very fun day.
