Blue Lake loop  Sucess!

Climbed Audubon via southeast ridge, then over to Paiute, and then down Paiute's steep south face past the incomparable Blue Lake and five other lakes. All with my daughter... a supreme day in the mountains.

Audubin-Paiute  Sucess!

Climbed with Shanahan96 and Jamie Nellis via Audubon. Fierce winds all morning had this one feeling more like early November! Luckily we were able to use some of the ridge bumps to shield us.

audubon-paiute traverse  Sucess!

scooted over to paiute via its traverse with audubon. there wasn't much scrambling but plenty of bumps along the ridge to hide on the south side from the wind. the better part of the climb.

aborted attempt

Had climbed up Audubon and started across the ridge to Paiute. Got as far as the saddle between Audubon and Paiute when the weather changed from just fluffy clouds to unbroken gray clouds. So down the loose rock and gravel chute to the unnamed lake above Blue Lake. It started to rain, hail and thunder before we got to Blue Lake. By the time we got to treeline the storm had passed and the sun tried to make a comeback. So I guess I'll have to try Paiute again on another day.

South Rib  Sucess!

7:15 round trip with GL and SG. GL and I also scrambled over to the N summit. Fun, easy romp in the park. Completely devoid of all snow.

From Audubon  Sucess!

I climbed Audubon with CharlesD and his wife Amy. They has already done Paiute so we parted ways there and I continued on the traverse. Nothing hard, just more or less rugged hiking. I descended the SE face which wasn't all that fun. In retropect I would have retraced my steps to Audubon.

S Rib  Sucess!

Fun easy ascent - snow, rock, willows, and a little bit of everything else. One of the finest views in the state.

Paiute via Mt. Audabon  Sucess!

Climbed Paiute Peak via the ridge after trail running Mt. Audabon with Chuck D (Charles D) and Heavy G (Chris Gerber). A damn good day in the mountains. Sprained ankle notwithstanding.

Route Climbed: From Audubon  Sucess!

After climbing Audubon our group of 8 traversed to the saddle between Audubon and Paiute. Bu only two of us, Brad McCullough, and myself decided to go on over to Paiute. When we reached the summit of Paiute we could tell that we best descend quickly because a strom was moving in. So we found a route down some blocky ledges on the south side.

Route Climbed: South Rib Date Climbed: July 2, 2005  Sucess!

The trail above Mitchell Lake had quite a bit of snow and running water on it...quite sloppy. Blue Lake still had a significant amount of ice covering the surface, but no signs of recent avalanch runs were apparent on the slopes in the upper portion of the valley. Several skiers descended varying routes on Toll and the far SW ridge of Paiute.

After summiting by the South Rib route, I dscended the shallow couloir next to it by plunge-stepping and a sitting glissade. An ice axe was necessary for safe descent of this route.
