Get it before the snow comes  Sucess!

Wanted to get a peak in before the snow came. This was a fun and challenging hike with an interesting scramble to get up to the summit. Windy as hell, but a super fun day.

Snowshoe Double  Sucess!

Started just north of Carsons Pass at 4 am. No trail so simply headed north. Beautiful sunrise from Red Lake Peak. Obvious traverse north to Stevens. Filtered down into basin to the west of Stevens to snow-covered PCT and back to Carsons Pass

2X with Stevens  Sucess!

From Carson Pass, with my brother. Wound up not needing the snowshoes, but the microspikes helped for traction on the steep exposed slopes just under the summit of Red Lake. Continued on to Stevens for the OGUL double.

Winter, Red Lake Peak  Sucess!

Warm winter day, plenty of snow to walk on, sun, and next to no wind anywhere along the route. Brought snowshoes, wore them up to first ridge but ditched 'em there and hoofed it the rest of the way. Enjoyed company on the upper half with a couple of back-country folks who took the quick way down on board and skis.

Crater Lake loop with Stevens from Hope Valley  Sucess!

Hiked up with my dogs in the snow from the pullout near Road 91/Alhambra Mine Road/Alpine Mine Road along HWY 88 in Hope Valley to the outlet on the east shore of Crater Lake. We then headed northwest up the melted out ridge north of the lake to join the partially snowy normal south ridge route from Red Lake Peak to Stevens. I thoroughly enjoyed traversing the ridge south to Red Lake Peak with partial snow coverage after tagging Stevens. We looped down the northeast slopes of Red Lake Peak, waving at Crater Lake to our left on the way back to the parking area along HWY 88. We saw no other visitors on a Monday, but lots of ski tracks and a few snowshoe tracks in the bowls and gullies of both peaks from the weekend.

With Stevens  Sucess!

Christmas hike of Red Lake followed by Stevens starting from the Carson Pass Sno Park. Somewhat tricky summit block on Red Lake, went up the false summit blocks first only to have redo the climb on the correct blocks. Could not locate register on Red Lake, but found one on Stevens. Tried to hook up with the TRT and PCT off of Stevens but wound up in snowshoe hell for 3 hours trying to get back to the Sno Park. Trip report is HERE.

Fall Colors  Sucess!

Returning from a weekend of camping, I did a quick hike up from Carson Pass/PCT. Took me a little while to figure out the best route up the summit rocks.

Cloudless Sky  Sucess!

Started at 6:30am for Red Lake and then Steven's. A fun summit block, no clouds and views were fantastic. And the Summit register is gone.

Register Gone  Sucess!

We got faked out by the "peak" on the first ridge, before realizing we still had 700' up to go. Would not have found our way up without researching the "easy" route first. The wooden summit marker and summit register I have seen in other trip reports is gone...and yes, I was on the "true" peak :)

From Carson w/ Stevens  Sucess!

Easy climb up from the pass, snow was mostly firm and a bit blown off the ridges. Summit block is easy if you pass it to the right and climb a short chute on the far side (north) to an easy ledge on the back (west side).

NE Ridge  Sucess!

Planned to start at Crater Lake, but couldnt quite get my car all the way up Alpine Mine Rd. Little extra hiking but eventually made it to the NE ridge and proceded to climb it. Climbed the false summit first cause it looked higher, but eventually made it over to the right one and found the register. Snapped a few picture then headed for Stevens.
