In Conjunction with Thompson  Sucess!

From South Lake, a quick, easy and fun climb, then traversed north ridge of Thompson. Great day even though we got stormed on pretty good as soon as we descended Thompson.

"Consolation Peak"  Sucess!

Long before I'd heard that this peak was unofficially called, 'Ski Mountaineers Peak', I arrogantly named it, 'Consolation Peak' in my personal trip notes. I'd just failed to solo climb the north ridge of Thompson due to excessive ice on the route, so I climbed this peak as a 'consolation'. I thought my name was kinda clever due to the view of the nearby 'Inconsolable' range from the summit.
But if you all would rather call it, 'Ski Mountaineers Peak', well then... okay. :-)

Grand Loop  Sucess!

Day 3 of the alt Sierra Challenge 2013. While the hard core Challenge nuts crossed the crest at Echo Col and head for bad weather on the Black Divide, seven of us (Laura, Joan, Tommey, Carol, Jeff, Jim, and I) headed for Ski Mountaineers peak first followed by Mt Thompson via its tricky but highly satisfying north ridge. Once on top, Tommey continued on to Pt Powell while the others returned the way they came. I continued the grand loop by dropping down Thompson's horrible SE chute and climbing the only weakness (a class 2 chute) on Mt Gilbert's west side. Bypassing the summit due to bad weather (and having climbed it before), I climbed over Mt Johnson (with thunderstorms both north and south of me) before returning via the Treasure Lakes basin.

With the Sierra Challenge Crew  Sucess!

Beautiful day in an awesome basin - well worth the stroll to see all the streams and lakes.
