Just a tree covered bump on my way down after hiking Kataka.
On snowshoes, fluffy snow, a little bushwacking, interesting peak!
Perfect Weather, blue sky and no wind! I was able to ski the first three miles up to the drainage. Then I ditched the skis and walked up the rest of the way through about a foot of powder.
Looped Spearhead, Kataka, Logan and PT 10780 from the Threemile trail. Incredibly dry for this time of year, didn't even need gaitors as any snow I came across was usually only boot sole deep, and far between. Chilly and windy, so at least something felt "November Like" about this hike!
Broke in the new year with a nice combo of Spearhead and Kataka. Ascended NE slope to the summit of Spearhead. Great winter hike.

I started bushwhacking up the slopes earlier than what is described in the route description. The slopes might have been steeper but it was open going. I don't know what got into me that day, but I decided I needed more and so I headed back down and then up to Tahana Mountain which I am sure is rarely climbed because of its dimunitive prominence.
What a lovely day stomping through the powder. The Threemile Creek to Northeast Slopes route provides lovely rock outcroppings along the way. Partners: Phil's CMC group.
