Summit has a better view than Long's summit. 100% worth the extra elevation gain.
Started around 6:30AM. No snow along the route to the top. No wind at the summit either which was a nice bonus. Dropped down to boulder fields from summit (there was snow here) and used granite pass to return to the normal trail down. Back at car around 2PM.
Perfect day, great views of the Diamond.
packed trail to Chasm Junction. Then either crusty snow or no snow up to summit and back to trail at Granite Pass.
Started too late since we were with a larger group and the Diamond was clouded over, but the climb was great. Lots of big boulders, though. More work than I expected. Got to the top about 2:00. Back to trailhead by 5:00.
better than I thought it'd be!
managed to ski from just below the summit to the car with only taking the skis off once to cross about 100 feet of talus
Climbed via Martha.
Great first climb, however we didn't achieve the actual summit. High on the mountain there was a saddle, and we made the mistake of climbing up to the south rather than the north lol. Great views regardless!
via martha with Jeff Lark, turned into an epic.
Lady, battle, storm
Fun scrambling and beautful views at the summit.
I didn't believe the stories about the wind...had to find out for myself. It truly is windy up on that ridge. Great views and NO other folks up there today :)
Climbed Martha to the summit. Fun day, almost 10 hours ctc, pretty mellow pace.
Finally topped out after dodging this one via the Boulderfield so many times.
An easy scramble from camp at the Boulderfield. Wicked awesome views of the Diamond!
started from the boulder field after setting up camp took the east ridge up to the summit.
After just hiked Twin Sisters and Mtn. earlier, I made the walk up to Battle Mountain which, was my goal. I taked on Lady Washington since I was up there and still felt good.
Took Jim's Grove down. Long but satisfying day.
With Emily and Tanya.
First time above treeline! Also hiked up Storm Peak and to the Keyhole.
