Memorial Day Climb  Sucess!

Its a steep one! We took the shortest route up along the north side of the creek from the east and then up the south face to the west summit. Bushwack: more trees down than you were hoping for. The upper basin is gorgeous. South face: steeper and looser than you were hoping for. If we had brought ice axes it would have been much easier to go up one of the snow filled gullies. Goats on the east summit. Beautiful views from the top. Great spring climb!

Flawless Skies Reward Tiring Bushwhack  Sucess!

Climbed from the eastern approach and south ridge. The hike above the creek bed is a tiresome slog through deadfall and underbrush for the first mile and a half, but once we broke out of the trees the route ahead became pretty straightforward. The scree on the east summit's south ridge is nasty in places, but the summit views were amazing. Not a cloud in the sky, and Mt. St. Nicholas in Glacier Park was spectacular on the horizon. Great views 360˚.

S Ridge East Summit  Sucess!

Approached from the Our Lake / Headquarters Pass Trail Head via the unnamed creek that drains the south side of the mountain and climbed the SE / S Ridge of the east summit to the east summit then traversed over to the main summit. Nothing more than class 2.

South ridge from Our Lake  Sucess!

Fun route on a very windy day, descended via North Ridge and back to Cave Mountain TH, where my wife met me with the car.

Old Baldy  Sucess!

Lead for GMS from the Our Lake/HQ Pass trailhead. Reached the summit several times via this route in previous years.

From the south, Our Lake trailhead.  Sucess!

Early season climb with the GMS. Cool day, enough clouds that the west summit was completely socked in, but by the time we traversed to the east summit, had lifted enough to provide nice views! All in all a nice introduction to this portion of the Rocky Mountain Front, and the eastern border of the Bob. Wonderful country!
