Nice scramble after Medicine Bow  Sucess!

It only took me an hour and twenty minutes from the summit of Medicine Bow to the summit of Sugarloaf, with some routefinding through the brush on the southwest side. I descended via the East Couloir picking up trash as I went.

September Snow  Sucess!

After a fierce early morning thunderstorm in Laramie, I guess I should not have been surprised to find the Snowy Range...Snowy. There was a half inch sprinkling of white on everything. Low clouds made me opt for Sugarloaf, which was a nice challenge and a beautiful platform to see the rest of the snowy Snowy range. And when the clouds lifted a bit, I continued to Medicine Bow.

from the Med Bow Saddle  Sucess!

Bagged Sugarloaf after coming off of Medicine Bow. Hiked up from the saddle, and down the coulior on the other side to Libby Lake. Weather started coming in on the summit of Sugarloaf.

Sugarloaf Mountain  Sucess!

Kessler, Shaylee, Kimberly, and I climbed Medicine Bow Peak in Wyoming today. It was very warm for October and I didn't even need a jacket on top. After enjoying the summit, we descended a bit and I wanted to climb Sugarloaf Mountain, but the others didn't. The others continued their descent while I climbed Sugarloaf Mountain. I didn't spend much time on top since clouds were gathering, so I descended as it started to thunder. There were some short lived snow pellets, but that was it. We saw several pikas on the hike and a fox in camp. It was a good climb.

Up the east slopes (nice scramble) and down the south slopes (nasty loose talus) after climbing Medicine Bow & Browns.

Lake Marie Loop  Sucess!

I climbed Medicine Bow with my friends Jaime & Oscar, then I split with them and climbed Sugarloaf from the Lewis Lake/Lakes Trail Junction. There was a little scrambling on mirror-smooth quartzite, but I reached the top faster than I expected. I descended the southwest ridge, and met up with Jaime and Oscar at Mirror Lake, then we headed back to Lake Marie trailhead.

Sugarloaf  Sucess!

Took a road trip to bag Medicine Bow. When we found it too snowcovered, decided to bag Sugarloaf instead. Beautiful park!

Route Climbed: Lake Marie TH via Medicine Bow Peak Date Climbed: June 11, 2005  Sucess!

A great addition to the summit of Medicine Bow Peak. This leg of the journey was fairly quick, but well worth it. A must-do for anyone day-hiking Medicine Bow Peak or camping in the area.
