Static + Richthofen  Sucess!

Started just before 3PM at American Lakes TH. Climbed up East Ridge of Static Peak first. Followed connecting ridge to Mount Richthofen. Idea was to descend to Lake Agnes. Wasn't sure if it was from the North Saddle or South Saddle of Richthofen. Ended up choosing the more southern one (way worse) and got myself into the worst terrain I have ever been on. Easily class 5 with rotten and loose rock. Highly suggest NEVER going down or up that way. It was dark by the time I got down to Lake Agnes. While I could have hiked the final 7 mi back, some folks that were camping were nice enough to offer me a ride back to the TH after hearing about my bad experience. Back at 9PM.

Late start, baby, and hail storm. Fun day though...

Lake Agnes  Sucess!

My kind of climb. Only 2 miles each way! Really beautiful, although views were obscured by forest fires.

Lake Agnes/West Ridge  Sucess!

Meetup.com hike. We climbed up to the Richthofen/Mahler saddle from Lake Agnes, then up the west ridge to the summit. Great weather and nice views that day.

Lonely day in the winter  Sucess!

NW ridge was icy and the summit gully was fairly serious with a dusting of snow and a lot of rime ice. Very fun, great ski down from Agnes Lake to highway.
