Topped out  Sucess!

Climbed up directly to this through the talus on the way to Aix when we lost the trail in snow. Had skipped this when I first did Aix but glad I did it this time as this one really is a summit in its own right. Thick cornice on the back side. This would be a great spot to ski from if you wanted to carry skis up the climb. Big snow bowls on the back side of a lot of the peaks on this ridge.

Good Addition To Aix  Sucess!

I found the views from the highest point of Nelson Ridge to be better than those of the summit of Aix.

Nice Extra Peak  Sucess!

Gimpilator, his friend Greg, and I summited Mount Aix. The terrain above 6900' had fairly consistent snow, enough to enhance the scenery but not enough to impede our progress. As a result, after leaving Mount Aix we took the side-trip to the highest summit of Nelson Ridge. It is just a walk-up. Good views.

Via Mt. Aix trail  Sucess!

Summited the 7495 and 7537 points after summiting Mt. Aix. Pretty cool little ridge, especially when viewed from about 1/4 of the way up the Mt. Aix summit where Rainier in the background is visible and matches the heights of the Nelson Ridge peaks. Great panorama!

On a Mount Aix Trip

Made it to Point 7438 and will be back this year for 7537. Coming back from Aix I was thinking of doing it but the group wanted to head back so I didn't get 7537.
