Steep hike up to Golden Lake, then great views from up high. With Splattski or would have been tough to find the way. Beautiful day, cold and super clear. Trip Report
#2 of a double bag(two mountains in one day) and quite an amazing hike. Scrambled up the northwest ridge and there's quite a bit of exposure up there. Class 4 scrambles all the way but the rock is granite so the grips are sure. So many lady bugs at the peak. I've never seen so many in one spot my whole life. I think we had the best glissading experience to date coming down the northwest ridge. Great hike. Bagged it!
Josh and I climbed via the NE ridge on the way down from Sawtooth. That NE ridge sure is a blast, and a great little scramble! We descended the NW ridge and had fun glissading down the snow.
Good fun with the family!
It was a cloudy wet day with lots of snow. Didn't get much of a view at the top because of the weather but on the way down the blue sky opened up and began to mock me. This is a really beautiful area!
