Squaw, Chief, and Papoose  Sucess!

Combo with Chief and Squaw. Easy round trip hike on a sunny May morning. Just a little bit of snow on the Chief Mountain Trail. Easy to avoid snow heading up to Papoose from the saddle with Chief.

From Chief Mountain  Sucess!

With Maria. We summited Chief first, then went over to Papoose and Lobdellized the summit. Lots and lots of people on Chief, no one at all on Papoose.

From Chief Mtn  Sucess!

CMC Trip. We got chief first, then Papoose. We Lobdellized the summit, then headed over to Squaw Mountain. There's still a lot of snow up there, but snowshoes are not required. - Nov 20, 2013 6:13 pm Date Climbed: Nov 20, 2013

From Chief  Sucess!

My wife and I hit Papoose after Chief. This was our third peak for the weekend. We had fun navigating through sugar snow up to the summit.

Side trip from Chief  Sucess!

I've been up Chief at least a dozen times but had never made the short bushwhack over to Papoose. Did it today in about 20 minutes roundtrip (from the saddle on the Chief Mtn. Trail). Worth it for the view of Chief from the summit and the solitude. Heavy graupel on the descent.

Squaw/Papoose/Chief  Sucess!

Papoose is definitely the nicest of the three in my opinion. Trees, but more seclusion feel to it.

With Squaw  Sucess!

Wasn't sure which was the high point, so I went to all of them. Nice day, love the sun!

With Chief & Squaw  Sucess!

Not much of a summit but a logical place to visit if you're combining Chief & Squaw... gotta keep the family complete.

Chief/Papoose Saddle  Sucess!

I snowshoed Chief first, then tagged Papoose from the saddle. Now I have the entire Chief Group.

Via saddle with Chief  Sucess!

Needed a nice, quiet day that wouldn't "kill" the husband. Trips up Warrior and Papoose met the need. Nice powder from the saddle up to the Papoose summit.

Papoose and Squaw  Sucess!

Hiked these two with the wife and the dog. Papoose required some snowshoeing.
