My last PP Marathon. We doubled that year...
Got my October grid slot and new route, taking Barr/Bottomless Pit/Rumdoodle Ridge/NW ridge. See TR. Cool route!
Same as Wawa below me. Magnificent, challenging northeastern-ish approach. Perhaps as high as 50 degrees (temperature, not slope) at the summit.
I took the Barr Trail in and then scrambled up some ridiculously dangerous and seemingly discarded Northeastern Class 3 route above treeline. There were some old cairns, not many. Not recommended in winter. Came down the much safer Barr Trail.
What we climbed might have been part of the Rumdoodle approach.
Took the easy way up. Was cold and windy.
Never, NEVER before had I climbed a peak before and bought a souvenier on the summit at the gift shop! : ) WTF?

First summit of the year. Great clear day. Only hiker on the mountain.
Twice was not as nice. Windy winter ascent!
Fun, easy day. Was a bit long-winded though!
Unusual storm came through. Lightning, freezing rain and snow. My hands have never been so cold. Completed the ascent in 3:18.
Great snow route. Camped at Barr and went up through bottomless pit, Y coulior route. Had a hamburger on top and glisaded down the trail side back to Barr. Was an awesome day aside from some blisters on the way out from Barr.
Ran most of the way. Long......
Beautiful hike with perfect weather. Over 7,000 gain, but well worth the effort. Hiked with Steve, Hootie, and HM. Cheated and took the train down.
We took the Tahoe method. We also tagged Devil's Playground.
After reaching the top on car and train this was my first time hiking up. Took the Crags trail up, no issues along the way. Unique look along the way - only bikes were allowed on the road today.
Hiked up from the Crags with an 81-years young friend. Beautiful blue skies.
Climbed up the east slope, it was great and i could do it again
Great views from the top.
