from Pica Trailhead  Sucess!

very windy day. The first summit had register, the 2nd summit - the higher one I did not find one, but there was a lot of snow covering the cairn.
I was able to drive all the way to Pica TH in my subaru.

Southeast Slopes  Sucess!

Started from the Pika trailhead (public access on Prunes Ct), plowed to trailhead but drifted at the parking lot. Deep snow in the trees, needed snowshoes, but wind scoured up high and able to go without flotation or traction. Windy day!

Pennsylvania Mtn with Evans-B and Dyer Mtn  Sucess!

Really came to do the scramble from Evans-B to Dyer Mtn, but saw Pennsylvania Mtn beckoning. Was a lightning fast side trip. Used Sacramento Creek trail head.

Shuttle hike with Evans B  Sucess!

I hiked up Pennsylvania Mtn via its standard SE ridge route (after taking a long time to find the TH), then down its west ridge and up Evans B. Was going to add London with Shawn (who was doing the ridge from Tweto to Repeater) and down to his car on Mosquito Pass Rd, but he skipped Arkansas which put him way ahead of schedule.

Warm winter day  Sucess!

Short hike, weather was amazing for january, sunny in mid 30ies, no wind. I needed short hike after fighting cold, Pennsylvania was perfect!

Mosquito continues!  Sucess!

Great holidays that I spent in the mountains. First day, I hiked Jacque Peak and Pennsylvania Mountain. It was very smoky that day, first glimpse on the fire season. View of Tenmiles are great.

Nice Warm-up for Sherman!  Sucess!

Staying on public lands makes this easy hike a bit of a lung-burner! Great conditions on Tuesday, but smoky haze obstructed some of the long-distance views. Easy access from the end of Mountain View Drive and really convenient if you need to stretch out prior to Sherman.

starting with plan E  Sucess!

hiked pennsylvania to kickoff winter 2011. snow levels in the mosquitoes were much higher than i've ever seen, and that led to an absurd amount of wallowing all the way to the ridge at 12,300'. ridge was much easier until the plateau 12,800'-12,950' where lots of snow had collected forcing me to posthole a majority of the way to the summit.

Evans, Pennsylvania  Sucess!

Parking below London Mountain the wife, pup and I hiked Evans and Pennsylvania. Holy hell crossing the snowy willows, sans snowshoes, from Pennsylvania back to the road was miserable!!

a little problem...  Sucess!

One of our group had a problem and ended up getting injured, so our day finished a little more negative than it began, but it was still a fun day(see mtnhiker13's report from that day).

SE Ridge  Sucess!

We were mostly able to avoid the snow today or just suffer through short bouts of postholing, though right around timber line / willow death line we needed our snow shoes for a few minutes to get past deep drifts. Elk were all over the place on this mountain, and we saw a small herd, themselves postholing, through the snowfields. Cloudy day, so the views were limited but the views we enjoyed were dramatic thanks to the cloud cover. Hiking partner: Deb.

NW Slopes  Sucess!

Contoured above the mines and took a loose slope up to the summit ridge, almost deposited me right on the summit. Very windy day. Descended more of the west ridge route to avoid the loose rock from my ascent.

SE Ridge  Sucess!

For some reason the appeal of this peak was that it was only 6 feet above the magic 13,000 foot status. Lots of mining activity and it seemed that I had the whole mountain to myself. Most of the hike for me was cross country because I had no beta on the route.

W Ridge Ski Descent  Sucess!

Following a ski descent of Mt Evans B, I made a creative skin of the W Ridge and SW face, with one 100ft bootpack just below the summit plateau. From there, creative patch-hopping allowed me to skin to just short of the summit. The ski back down required me to carry my skis twice, but actually yielded a few good turns dropping off the summit plateau.

Southeast Ridge  Sucess!

Great get in shape hike. We had an interesting experience on this mountain. One of our hikers who has been recovering from a bike crash - ended up breaking a bone in his ankle on some snow we went down on the descent. Luckily we ran into some graduate students who had a cart for their peat moss and we were able to wheel him down the rest of the mountain in the cart. What an adventure!! The first injury of any significance we have had in the mountains.
