Alone on the mountain. No need for crampons. An axe might be useful for another week yet, if you prefer kicking steps over skating on rubble.
Got a late start to the TH (9am). Up top by 1:30pm via an 'interesting' albeit far more technical than necessary route that did stick to the 'southwest ridge' and 'pick your own gully' mantra. Took the cairned off easy route down the first major gully you pass (definitely recommend this route for both ascent and descent). Car to car in ~7hrs. 85deg in Glacier ... intense sunny and a pretty smoking hot day even up top, but bluebird skies
A great scramble with some awesome views!
A fun climb on what sounded like a pile of dinner plates. 6 and a half hours car to car.
for my B birthday I thought it would be fun to compleate a climb I have been looking forword to for many years so I struck off solo to make my way up I was nearly hit in the face by a piece of rock I could do nothing but stand there and watch it because i was caught in one of the small rock shutes it flew by missing my face just by an inch I held on with one hand and tried to protect my face with the other arm expecting to be hit I was okay and I latter made the summit and decended safley what an amazing climb with amazing views this is a climb I will continue every season.
Saw UFO (?) on approach at 5AM. Bright light, but no sound? What's going on up near those border peaks?
Yes, have seen lights up there as well in '88 and '89 that were not planes. One did an 90 deg. and went over our heads with no sound and no running lights. Anyone else?
What a neat mountain!!! I climbed this with Gimpilator after viewing it from Winchester the night before. Lots of loose rock and exposure. Wear a helmet for sure. Views are amazing.
Climbed Larrabee with Beau today and this is the 4th peak for me this weekend. Larrabee has been at the top of my wish list for several years now. I'm sure my hiking friends are sick of hearing about it. It had a lot more loose rock than I expected but I was not disappointed. What a peak!!!
It was nice to be alone in the loose gully, and the summit was very peaceful; although some spontaneous rockfall from the Pleiades makes you think when your toes are dangling. I camped at Twin Lakes the night before and was back tot he car by early afternoon for a well-earned dip in the lake.
Fun little mountain with long hike in. At base of mountain traverse left a long ways and pick a gulley and go straight up. Pretty loose rock but just a scramble.
A beautiful and occasionally exciting late summer hike with Travis. Wear a helmet or go alone in the gullies, and try to make it to Twin Lakes in your car, it would make the trip out a whole lot more pleasant.
A great day climbing Larrabee via the southwest ridge and Winchester via the north ridge from Low Pass. A little snow and a little rock fall coming down Larrabee, but still a super day.
This pile of rubble does afford some great views. Just pick a gully and your on your way up. I'm glad I scrambled alone though. I sent a lot of rock down.
Second time up for us. Completely different weather and time of year. We left a register this trip. Hope to hear from others about their climb. Great views on a clear day. Could only see 100 feet most of the day this time.
Extremely loose mountain of rusty rock! A little more solid climbing on the grey dike though. Mounain angle is moderate too so the trash is manageable. Great views of American Border peak, Slesse, B.C. ranges, and extreme north end of North Cascades.
