Backpack  Sucess!

Day 3, we packed up our Evolution Lake camp and headed for Darwin Bench, when we caught up with Sean near the bench he was fishing a small lake so we each took a turn and caught some bright goldens. We then found a central spot to drop our heavy packs and took water bottles for the climb up Goethe. After Goddard yesterday, the slog up the Goethe talus was pretty tough. We finally gained the east ridge and made our way to the summit where the views into Humpries Basin and beyond were spectacular. Looking south towards Goddard, it seemed incredible that we were atop that mountain only the day before.

Skied From West Ridge  Sucess!

Climbed a continuous snow line up the N face with a water ice choke for a crux, summited, and skied the obvious diagonal line off the W ridge. The climb in itself would have been worth the trip, but the skiing was perfect - a bit firm at the top and amazing corn from half way down to the moraine. Camped for two nights at 11,500 above Muriel Lake.

NE ridge from Alpine Col  Sucess!

This is a very nice ridge climb, easy for a class 3 rated climb. We were lucky to have snow cover to Alpine Col, thereby avoiding much talus. We descended the SE slopes to regain Alpine Col from the highest lake in that drainage. All in all a very nice way to spend a day. The peak receives only 4 or 5 ascents a year, we were the first to sign the register in 2017.

From Muriel  Sucess!

Enjoyed the route over from the summit of Muriel, the long route out is of course a bit different. The views over Muriel Lake though made the entire day spectacular. Well the climb was nice too. ;-)

Amazing how little snow was out there... far less than I encountered in the same area two years ago but 6 weeks later in the year.

Alpine Col.. N. Ridge  Sucess!

The climb from the Col was fun, there was one spot along the ridge that was an attention getter.

SE Slope  Sucess!

Along with hikinedd and lefty a group of us hit the snow at 4 am. The route from Muriel Lake over Alpine Col required crampons and ice axes due to hard snow and the steepness of the route. We decided against climbing the NE ridge route to the summit from the Col and instead we descend the south side of the Col and ascended the class 2 SE slope. We summited at 10 am.

Payne Lake To Mt Goethe  Sucess!

Climbed to Glacier Divide from the back of Payne Lake. Followed the Divide from the northwest to the summit. Returned the same way. Nice chilly, windy day to wind down the summer.

NE Ridge

Beautiful snow climb with Samantha. We started from Muriel Lake, cramponed up to the Keyhole, climbed up SE ridge of Muriel Peak, traversed to Alpine Col to start the NE Ridge of Goethe. We made it to the ~13180' sub-peak about 1/3 mile east of the summit, then retraced the ridge back to Alpine Col, glissaded down to Goethe Lake and followed its west side back to Muriel Lake. We were able to avoid most of the talus in the Alpine Col/Goethe Lake area by traversing snowfields.
