Good Fun  Sucess!

Fun ridge traversing and great views. Good alternative for getting higher compared to Sawtooths that are still snowbound at higher elevations.

Beautiful Country  Sucess!

From the Fourth of July Trailhead, we ascended Patterson and Blackmon in conjunction. It was a beautiful day and this is beautiful country!! The views of Castle Peak are phenomenal!

Tristan beats Dad to the top  Sucess!

A fun Class 2 with my son. Patterson gave him a few route finding lessons to consider for his next peak. Overcast with a touch of snow but the view of Castle, shrouded in a cloud, was stellar. We chose to take the shortcut near the pond at 9800 ft. to save time given the weather.

From trail on West Ridgeline  Sucess!

Dropped the backpack at Ants Pass on the way into Born Lakes. Memorable for the easy walk over to the summit, the myriad little blue flowers, and stunning views from a very comfy sitting spot on the summit.

West ridge from 4th of July  Sucess!

See splattski log and note the long, steep scree descent part that I do not recommend.

Route Climbed: North East Ridge from Born Lakes: July/2004  Sucess!

An overcast day with occasional rain on my way through Ant's Basin to the Born Lakes cleared up just in time for a scramble up to Patterson. My climbing buddy and I made our way up to the saddle between the Born Lakes and Four Lakes Basin and took the NE ridge up to the summit. I pushed myself so hard to beat him to the summit (he always wins!) that I was exausted when I got there, but just edged him out. :) We continued hiking the ridge to the south and curved around to Peak 10960, found a route down to Glacier Lake and side-hilled it back to the saddle and back to camp.

Double Peaked with Blackman, Climbed June of 2000  Sucess!

Three of us made the trek from Fourth of July TH to Blackman Peak and then hiked the ridge up to Patterson. Good views of Sawtooths and Castle. Easy route to summit both peaks.

Route Climbed: XC from 4th of July lake - traversed ridge to other pks Date Climbed: July 2005  Sucess!

went up trail a little from 4th of July lake, then XC up to ridgeline. From summit scrambled down S ridge which changed from granite to limestone. Went over to PK. 10,900 and then SW on ridgeline to Pk 10,707. Went down trashy SW face of Pk 10,707 back to trail and 4th of July TH. Very enjoyable, light day with fun scrambling and magnificent views the whole time.

NE ridge via Four Lakes Basin  Sucess!

Beautiful capstone to a five day backpacking trip in the White Clouds. Angled up the NW ridge from Four Lakes Basin, and reached the summit just as the sun came out from behind the clouds.
