A long approach from Long Lake trail head and a fun steep tundra and talus scramble at the end! I met no one above tree line and had a wonderful mountain ascent in complete solitude.
Was going to try curse of the mummy (Mummy Mania ++), but we didn't have it that day.
Would have been 6 of 6 on this long day. Lightning forced a hastey retreat just 20-30 feet from summit...I feel robbed.
Very windy day, but a great mountain.
With Eric Holle. Final summit of Mummy Mania trek. We were in a big hurry at this point to get to treeline before threatening clouds closed in. The aches of 14 miles completed and 6000 vertical feet began to set in. Reached the trees about the time hail began to fall. Long hike out to Lawn Lake TH was made easier with use of Advil. Chapin Pass to Lawn Lake Trailhead (6 summits) in 11.5 hours. Thanks to G. Roach for imagining and publishing this traverse idea. What a day!
One of the best weather days Ive had in the Colorado mountains. Lots of talus.
Last remaining peak in the area without snow. Last time up there before winter set in. It was great.
Last (sixth) peak on the Mummy Mania tour. We summited at 3:50, ten hours after leaving Chapin Pass, and got back to the car just before sunset at 8:20.
Total Ascents = 3. Twice on "Mummy Mania" type traverses, once from camp at Lawn Lake.
Peak #6... sixth and final one... of our Mummy Mania traverse. Did this with pksander. Long, but fun day. The descent off of Mummy seemed especially brutal for some reason. This is a great trip, I'd definately do it again...
Part of the Mummy Mania traverse completed with Chris Gerber. A very, very long day. See my trip report for more...
Started from lawn lake via Black Canyon trail. Awfuly long route, finished by summitting Hagues as well.
Mummy is something of a butt-kicker five summits into Mummy Mania. The traverse from Hagues is slow with lots of rock-hopping, and the 500' climb to Mummy feels twice as long!
An awesome finish to a long hike. Almost all down hill from here. Lots of Bighorn Sheep near the top.
Hiked Mummy Mania with Erin, Ryan, Andy, and John yesterday. We had beautiful weather and a great hike.
Peak 6 in a 6 peak day. We were happy to get there. As our hike leader said - No one loves you like your mummy. Nice traverse from Hagues. It's also nice because you can see the trail back to the Lawn Lake Trailhead from the top. We were happy to see that.
After a few failed attemps because of weather, I finally mad eit to the summit. Great mountain and incredible views in all directions.
