Skiing in low snow year  Sucess!

Some intermittent dry patches between so-so skiing. But still a great outing in perfect weather

fowl weather adventure  Sucess!

What started out as a pretty casual morning scramble turned into an early afternoon full speed fleeing of a storm

From Francis Lake  Sucess!

A straightforward route from the lake. Lots of bugs at the lake and the trail was more of a creek after the big winter. Fantastic views from the summit though! Some of the best around.

Race against (t-storm) time from Rock Creek  Sucess!

Day hike via Francis Lake from Rock Creek. I was almost back at the Lake when thunder started rumbling. Not too long after that the flood gates opened and all hell broke loose. Luckily I was back in the trees; I did get soaked but no biggie on a warm August day :)

Traverse from Little Lakes Peak  Sucess!

Not the adventure I was expecting after reading up on it. Took a wide, loose chute directly from the summit to just north of Chickenfoot Lake.

Via Francis Lake  Sucess!

Fun, pretty easy hike for such a tall peak. Went over to 12 Flags after but turned around just short of the summit at a really loose section, wasn't sure if it would get any better, should have researched better first...trip report is HERE

From LLP  Sucess!

A long trek via the ridge for my altitude-inept self. Was so happy to finally get to Morgan, only to find out that what you see from the ridge the whole time is a false summit.

Outstanding views on a clear day. Going down the west face (about a 3rd of a way down the ridge) was just awful though.

via Francis Lake  Sucess!

via Francisc Lake  Sucess!

maintained a nice pace up and didn't get sick, was very happy with that. Great views from the summit. Added in Twelve Flags after, then busted my ankle on the way down :(

What a view!  Sucess!

Hiked this with Ambret. Stunning views of Little Lakes Valley and the many peaks that line it.

Via Francis Lake  Sucess!

I missed the use trail up the sandy slopes near Francis Lake, thus was subject to needless boulder hopping. Cool summit.

Via Francis Lake  Sucess!

Summitted with Ruvicha. Great trail to Francis Lake. From there, some trail but lots of boulder-hopping to and up the northwest ridge. Nice views of Little Lakes Valley, Starr, Dade, Abbott and Mills plus countless others. A long day for us but definitely worth it.

From Francis Lake via NW Ridge  Sucess!

Took standard approach from Rock Creek Lake. Good trail to Francis Lake, then fairly easy cross-country to the main ridge. Class 1 boulder-hop from there, class 2 scramble right below summit. Great views across Little Lakes Valley and beyond. Smoke from Aspen Fire was drifting in from the west, so we didn't linger too long. Decided to tag nearby Twelve Flags (did not know name at the time) on the way back.
