Five peak traverse with Stefan. East, Middle, West Camas Peaks, Camas and Lion Points. Beautiful early fall day, with a tiny skiff of snow on the north facing rock, made for some careful hand/foot placement!
Climbed with The Rocky Mountaineers (Dell, Gail, Jim, & Cathy). Beautiful views from the summit.
Hiked over here along the ridge from West Camas. Last peak of the day on this traverse I finally got around to doing. Not heading up Ward for this one (already been up that route to Ward from Camas on a different trip, also short October days) This is another fine summit.
Final thoughts on the Camas Traverse: Nothing particularly difficult, although lots of rock hopping involved. Would be better without wet, snowy rocks. West Camas is especially fun. Doesn't take too long (casual 8 hours?) Beautiful lake basin that I don't visit often enough. Yeah- I say go for it.
Mike and I got to this one just before the fun scramble up Ward, out last summit on the day.
30jun09 - Climbed 5 summits today - East, Middle, & West Camas Peaks plus Camas and Lion Point. A great early season outing.
19jun09 - And the third time was with Jim Greenfield and my wife, Linda. The weather threatened all day, but never did give us a problem.
12jul08 - Bob Sihler and I made this one of the five summits we climbed during a point-to-point outing which began at the Camas Lakes Trailhead and finished at the standard trailhead for Ward Mountain.
25jun08 - Climbed to the summit of this peak for the first time. Did so on well-consolidated snow.
