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