Not quite sure why people say the SW ridge when it's mostly just a barrier to get onto the south side. Anyways, this peak had great views. I went up with a trekking pole/crampons, however some may want an ice axe. One should get Custer/Rham in the same day.
Climbed with Josh and John on a beautiful day. Incredible!
Climbed w/ Adam and co. Great trip to an awesome area.
Saw a massive avalanche on Custer Ridge right above our camp at Ouzel Lake. Got turned away from Rahm by angry goats. A wild place!
I was hoping to do the Mox Peaks and Redoubt as well, but ran out of motivation and took a 2-hour nap on Spickard instead. Kind of a wretched talus-fest, but what an amazing view! Trip report.
Easy climb up super soft snow, about 4 hours including breaks up to the summit, less than an hour down back to the lake. Perfect weather, little alpine-dragon fighting, and another victory for Cascadiastan!
Road drivable by 4WD to trailhead. Glacier climbable to the summit for us. Bring pickets for protection. Great area.
An easy but loose route
