This was a great way to climb Mt. Webster short technical ice section and general mountaineering all with the classic alpine feel
great views of the notch on this cliff type of a mountain
My wife, dog, and I climbed this as part of a four peak dayhike. Great views, nice and windy.
Huge clouds were flowing like a river through the notch. Mt. Webster also had streamers of clouds stretched over the summit. Hiking along was tough. The wind kept knocking me around and my hair and loose straps whipped my face, chest, and arms. The wind did dry me and my shorts off though.
Down W-J from Jackson, hitched ride back
Second summit of the day after doing Jackson. This short loop with 2 quality summits is real easy, we did it in 3.5 hours.
can't remember it to well
When you do the loop with Jackson and Pierce it's a good mountain to start because is easy to do the summit.
I think this was the climb I did... might have been a completely different mountain. I know it started across the street from Frankenstein (across from the Willey House on 302 and then you walk over the bridge and hike up into a little gully... follow that up quite a ways until you get to some grade 3 ice, solo that and then move on up to 3 fingers - i chose the middle gully which had a few ice bulges on it and then went up to the summit... let me know if this sounds like a different route on a nearby mountain, I'd like to know.
Mid-20s, breezy, and icy. Beautifully clear day with unlimited visibility.
Whee that was a stiff ascent. Fantastic views, good weather. On to Mizpah tonight.
