Free solo scramble up the southeast face, mostly Class 3-4, with some small sections that might be Class 5.2 at the most difficult. Took me 57 minutes, return trip back down the north face involved sliding in snow and bushwhacking, ~1 hour and 40 minutes to the road.
After ascending Mt. Angeles I headed over to Steeple Rock. Climbed a ways up the north ridge, then traversed to the east side and went up the rocks to the top. It took 30 minutes from car to summit.
Sunny, warm and no snow yet. It was the best November hike from Hurricane Ridge to Observation Point. The climb up Steeple was good too:)
Started at 10:00 AM. Due to the temperature inversion, the temps got up near 60. It had dropped well below freezing the previous night. The NW side was too icy to climb without protection and I had not brought any gear. Hopefully I will have better weather next time.
Over the years I have climbed Steeple Peak with my Father-in-Law and husband, up the East Ridge, North Side, Voile Normale, Direct Finish and other creative options. We have climbed in all seasons.
