Nice view, long slog, especially with absolutely no snow above Red Lake. The little catwalk was cool. I originally intended to knock out Tinemaha and Bolton Brown, but had no energy.
Day 5 of the Sierra Challenge 2013. Most of us settled for Split and Prater while a few hardy people made it to the Challenge Peak. Pictures & Story
On a loop trip with Laura (Moosetracks).
First Split Mountain and then Mt Prater.
With a large group of 7. Excellent conditions. Favorite part was the snow climb before reaching Prater-Split saddle. First hiked Split and then Prater.
An easy ascent with a short and exposed traverse near the summit. Great views!
After climbing Split, from the saddle between the two. Outstanding views from the summit.
Long day with Chad. Traversed Tinemaha, Split, Prater, Bolton Brown and Birch.
Birch -> Bolton Brown -> Prater -> Tinemaha, long day. Trip Report
Nice narrow ledge crossing on the way to summit
Enjoyed the little walkway just before the summit from the south. Definitely gets your attention!
Easy climb from the Split/Prater saddle, but a long way to get to that point. Nice views from the top.
