Re: 5 peak day

Good one! I was attempting this very thing on Monday, but had to drop Rose due to deep snow most of the way. 3/5 was good enough!

Via East Ridge from Mt Rose Trail with Relay Peak and Mount Houghton  Sucess!

Climbed by East Ridge as part of a triple summit day with Relay Peak and Mount Houghton. There was too much snow on the ground to tell if there was a decent use trail but the ridge was easy to follow. Nice views of Reno and Lake Tahoe.

Lost BD Guide Gloves  Sucess!

My wife and I lost 2 pairs of Black Diamond Guide Gloves at the parking lot (left them on the roof)... on my birthday no less. Hoping someone found them - they're $160/ea! They're black with tan leather, sizes M and L. Happy to pay a reward.

Please email if you found them at stephen.golebiewski@gmail.com

5 peak day  Sucess!

Fun day of hiking, from Mt. Rose summit took the Relay Road, cross country from due south of Tamarack, up and over the peak, back down to Relay Road, up to Relay Peak where I scrambled up the last 300 feet rather than walking the road, then took the new trail to Mt. Houghton, then cross country down from Houghton to the saddle with Mt. Rose, picked up the Mt. Rose trail here, took that until it was time for the easy cross country to Church Peak, then rejoined the Mt. Rose trail to the summit of Mt. Rose. Took the Mt. Rose trail all the way back down. TR will be posted HERE.

East Ridge  Sucess!

Parked at summit parking lot. Crossed the highway and did the snow climb up Slide Mountain. Then back to the pass and hit the rim trail. Got about a half mile in before snow took over. Just followed the ridge all the way up, occasionally looking over the edge at the beautiful bowl below. Saw two pairs of backcountry skiers and turned envious.
