27  Sucess!

Snow from the trail head all the way to the summit. Significant snow above the scree field. A creepy traverse over suspect snow slopes. Crampons and ice ax. A rare event for the Spring Mountains, but a snow storm the day before, and another about a week prior put a lot of snow on the mountain.

Spring Training  Sucess!

Spring conditions. Mud and melting snow. Seventeenth ascent in three years. Time to get some elevation in!

Scrambly Chute  Sucess!

Short scree and scramble but more fun than I expected. Great looking peak from any aspect.

With Charleston   Sucess!

Fun scramble up a chute to the summit. Interesting summit cliffs!!

Fletcher to Mummy  Sucess!

A challenging hike from the Fletcher Peak summit, up the steep south-facing scree to the crest, then northeast to Mummy's summit. A full day but a rewarding one. I admire this area.

Mummy Mountain  Sucess!

While making my ascent to Charleston Peak I debated making the detour to Mummy Mountain. I was very glad I did and it was well worth the extra effort. The route though the notch to the summit plateau was awesome with mixed snow and ice. Great views from up top in all directions.

First of many  Sucess!

A Spring Mountains monarch, with a couple of decent scrambling options once you ascend the scree slope from the North Loop trail. This is a great one to rope in as part of a three- or four-peak loop, along with Charleston, Griffith, Harris or Fletcher.

From Lee Canyon  Sucess!

Snow conditions in Lee Canyon in the morning weren't too bad (not too much postholing) but we sunk in up to our waists on the way down in the afternoon. Mummy Mountain was almost completely free of snow except for the area where you go through the cliffs to the summit plateau. There was some ice and snow there, but it did not make it any more difficult. No crampons needed.

North Loop/Trail Canyon  Sucess!

3rd signature in the summit registry for 2013.

No snow left on the south facing scree slope, one small patch up on the ridge.

Pics and commentary here.

One of my favorite peaks  Sucess!

This was the first of three ascents in 2012, each from a different route. I'm not sure why, but I have an affinity for Mummy Mountain, and will be doing it again.

I wanted my Mummy.  Sucess!

It was a very hot day in the valley but much cooler in the Spring Mountains. The route is pretty staight forward but you may be pulling out your map and questioning things along the way. The long scree slope up is a pain but it is not as bad coming down as you may think. I was up in less than 3 hours and that was just a steady pace, not fast. Great day and was back at the pool by afternoon.

Fourth time from North Loop  Sucess!

Startling that there was no snow, not even piled on the north side below the cliffs, so early in the season. Enjoyed seeing Harlan up top after a couple of decades. First time up was 9-27-08, with both Rusty and Abby; how Rusty made it up the chute is beyond me. Big heart in that dog. Storm clouds started to move in while we were up top and we hurried down in the rain. Other times have been with only Abby: 6-20-10, 7-15-11 and this one. Special place up there.

Third Peak of the Day  Sucess!

South loop to Griffith and Charleston. Took the North loop trail on the way down and went up Mummy Mountain. This was first ever real scrambling. Lots of fun, but tiring towards the end of my hike.

Trail Canyon - N. Loop - scree scramble  Sucess!

There were lots of people parked at Trail Canyon trailhead today, so I expected a crowd on top -- instead, I was surprised that I'm only the second person in 2012. It's early yet, though. Still quite a bit of hard, icy snow paths along the base of the cliffs, so route finding was a bit of a challenge at times. Beautiful on top, glad to have finally made it up.

Trail Canyon to North Loop, great hike  Sucess!

Took us 3 attempts but we finally reached the top. The North Loop trail is so scenic and from the scree slope forward the hike gets very interesting.

Again on 6/28/14.

Again on 9/27/14, after summitting Charleston.

Again on 5/28/16 with some snow and ice to detour around on the ridge to the chute.

Again on 9/3/17, up the scree slope, down the E chute, over to Mummy's Toe, then back around to Trail Canyon. GPS tracks

Again on 9/21/17, up the standard scree slope route with a friend. Down the same way. 50MPH gusts at the top, windiest hike I've ever been on. Beautiful fall colors.

2nd try was a charm :)  Sucess!

Tried once a long time ago but my friend gave up so I had to head down with him. This time I went up on the other side, it was much easier. This was the first peak of a 3-peak day with the LVMC training for Rainier.
