Soloed Palisades and Marcus
During the summer 2014 we climbed the Palisades and wanted to continue to Marcus and Dege Peak. Tons of treacherous snow crossed our plans. But we had a tremendous day in the wilderniss with no people at all. You can find some pictures on my website (written is in German, sry).
Hidden Lake is a gem too.
You can avoid a lot of bushwhacking if you keep a little left on the saddle between Marcus and Palisades. I'll upload GPX sometime. Peak register showed lots of climbs in September. Very good location.
