The last bump on a nice loop from Alice to Chiefshead to Orton and back out. Super hike!
Great views of wild basin. Pretty steep bushwhacked from Sandbeach lake with lots of brush and boulders
Its a nice mountain in its own way, but choose your route carefully if coming from Sandbeach Lake
On the way to Chiefs Head topped out on the rocky outcrop. Nice views of the surrounding area, but the pale in comparison to what was to come from the top of Chiefs Head, but it is still worthy of a visit on its own.
On the way to Chief's Head, stopped here and enjoyed the view of Wild Basin / Mt. Alice profile
Hiked both beaks after a camp at Sandbeach Lake. I was amazed at the number of columbines near the summit.
Climbed this enroute to Chief's Head with CharlesD. It was easier than's the main objective.
Climbed as part of a dayhike above treeline from Sandbeach while backpacking. Nice hike with great views.
We ended up on Mount Orton on the way up Longs. If you want to get into the basin from the North Ridge stay on it almost until Chief's Head then drop down.
The little mountain with a big summit view.
Total ascents = 4.
en route on a failed attempt of Chiefs Head. Great views, but the wind nearly blew me to Kansas.
Saw this peak while trudging up Chiefs Head. Found myself less than 100 yards from the summit and thought "what the heck?". Spectacular views.
