I was with hgrapid.. and I will add that the descent to the Upper Truckee basin was also muddy.
Bagged Red Lake first, and then Stevens. Took about two hours to bag both peaks. The descents along the connecting ridge are pretty tricky. We signed the log book.
A straightforward hike from Red Lake Peak. A beautiful day with lots of wildflowers and great companionship.
snowshoed up stevens peak from hope valley, traversed over to red lake and skied back down to the car. conditions for snowshoeing were good, snow was wet wet wet by the time i finally got around to skiing. 3rd time on both peaks.
Started from a turnout on highway 88 and came up the east face. Clear, but cool and windy. Register needs a couple ziploc bags and a pen that works.
Traversed from Red Lk. Pk. Blowing snow and temperatures in the low-mid teens. No views at all. Had to dig the summit register pads out of the snow - previous visitor or nature had dumped the contents on the ground.
Great views with a storm rolling in. Kane and I hit this peak after hiking over from Red Lake Peak. Excellent hike that was well worth the effort.
a nice morning workout
Traversed from Red Lake Peak after spending the night at ~9900'. The views were amazing, temps were warm and what little wind we encountered was isolated to the evening.
No snow and good weather, made this climb seem like a summer hike. You got to love Calif.
Like Bob said. A cold, short, windy, but pretty fun spring outing.
Enjoyable spring day with Matthew. Trip Report
A snowy, wintry day in late April. Clouds invaded the summit prior to our arrival, so we barely had view from one summit point to the next.
Drove 4X4 Road off 88 and made short scramble to the summit. There are some interesting old mine shafts in the area.
Traversed over from Red Lake Peak with my bros Abi and Ryan and then climbed up a shoot on the south face. The ridge line had 50 mile and hour gusts.
Snowshoed up from the east with loopperu, and ascended via the east ridge, which had a nice short step of class 3. skiied down all the way to the car. PICS
Skinned up the south east bowl and dropped into the north west bowl.
