West Ridge from Steelhead Lake  Sucess!

Bad weather almost all day. Super stormy on top, almost impossible to sign the summit register. Nice ridge though. Wanted to climb Mt Morgan as well but the rain and thunderstorms made me change plans.

Nice dayhike  Sucess!

A fun, and somewhat long, dayhike from Rock Creek Rd. Nothing terribly treacherous or challenging, just a nice day out.

SW Slope from Pioneer Basin - traverse to Morgan  Sucess!

This was our exit route from a backpacking trip, so we climbed it with full packs. The route goes at Class 2 with numerous options, though we occasionally opted for harder moves on more solid rock. Pretty fun scramble.

East Slope from Lake 10,353  Sucess!

A nice late season dayhike. This was a nice climb, and one can even spice it up with some class 3 just below the summit ridge. Contrary to what Secor says, it is perfectly reasonable (class 2) to head for the low point of the saddle just before the small tarn at the base of the East Slope. Trip report.

Day Hike from Pine Grove  Sucess!

Up the switch backed short cut across from Pine Grove Campground. Climb came in at 16 miles, even with the short cut (and I contoured around the place where the trail dropped down and came back up near Patricia Peak's north ridge). Beautiful day.

From camp at Hilton Lake #5. Very scenic through the upper drainage area.

Day hike from McGee Creek  Sucess!

Easy scramble from Stanford Col. Large boulder field must be crossed above Steelhead Lake, but not too bad. Stanford Col is very loose. Solo.

From Rock Creek Road...  Sucess!

...via Hilton Lakes. Complicated route finding. Climbed, by mistake, peak T-12931 first, then to (lower) Mt. Stanford. Very few visitors per year. A whole day affair. Trip report.

From Rock Creek  Sucess!

Tried using all short-cuts from trail at Pine Cove Campground. Too many f'ing trees!! Enjoyed all the rock once over tree line; stayed high over the lakes and traversed on boukders, no trail. Cold windy summit!

Ran up there with the dog one morning. The register was gone, so I replaced it with one that Barbara Lilley donated.
