No snow on Old Snowy  Sucess!

Which was a good thing; rumor had it there was 2 feet of snow a week or two before we climbed.

From the PCT  Sucess!

If you're on the PCT, you might as well scramble up to this peak; it only takes a few minutes

Ski trip  Sucess!

Approached from the south, up the snowed-in road to Chambers Lake area, then up Goat Creek onto Snowgrass Flat. Thought I’d died and gone to heaven, the Goat Rocks range must have been designed and constructed by a mountain god who was wanting a place to ski.

With my daugther  Sucess!

Climbed with my daughter at age 8. It was her first and last mountaineering experience. Met Paul Baugher and had a very nice chat. On the way out ExcitableGirl charmed a man with a horse into letting her ride his horse for the entire hike out.

Ives/Snowy Traverse  Sucess!

My wife had school work to take care of, so at the last minute I decided to return to the Goat Rocks. This time, my dog Cammie came along for the climb. We ascended to the col just left of Ives from the PCT/Snowgrass junction. The view from here may be the best in the wilderness. We then continued along the ridge crest for a Snowy summit bivy. The hikers on Snowy were surprised to see us coming from that direction! The wind and rain picked up into the night and we made a rapid retreat the next morning. A beautiful area.

As a scout for Old Snowy  Sucess!

Remember doing Old Snowy as a boy scout, thought we were pretty cool until we reached the summit to find two 7 year olds with their own ice axes. Years later did Ives Peak on a different trip..shown at http://www.willhiteweb.com/washington/goat_rocks_climbing/ives_hawkeye_227.htm

Old Snowy  Sucess!

Hiked up this one from the PCT. Nice views. My first trip to Goat Rocks. I'll be back... Sun set while on top, so any thoughts of scrambling to Ives were erased! Neat to see Adams and Rainier under light of the full moon.

Trail / Traverse  Sucess!

Simple trail to top of Old Snowy, and a fun alpine traverse over to Ives. Red red wine make me feel so fine.

Nice backpacking trip  Sucess!

We have been meaning to do some backpacking in this area for years and finally made it. After checking with the local ranger station, we decided to carry crampons in. NOT NECESSARY AT ALL! Plenty of water in the upper meadows this time of year. Enjoyed a nice chat on the summit with some guys from Seattle and also two Forest Service Rangers.
