Camped out and got an early start. Went up the East ridge to the summit. Awesome hike. Total stats were about 10.86 miles and 4,000 gain.
Came up from Birch Creek below the small 10000 saddle halfway up the east ridge. Gaining the ridge proved to be a bit of a slog but aside from that it was an excellent hike.
MtnEar and I started skinning out from the bridge about a mile and a half before the Dinner Station campground around noon. We climbed the east ridge and dropped our packs at a flat spot around 8500 feet. Originally we were going to camp and then summit in the morning, but worries about weather the next day caused us to continue to the summit that night. We arrived at the top to witness a beautiful winter sunset!(And some fiercely cold wind!) We then took our time enjoying the descent back to our camp on the ridge with headlamps on and bright stars shining overhead. I had to sit down for a while before going below treeline just to soak it all in. A great trip on a great mountain! (I only wish I had brought snowshoes instead of skis for this trip- the skiing conditions were horrible!)
An amazing day and a great early season scramble. My dog and i started from birch creek TH at 8 and reached the summit at noon. Still a fair amount of snow. Bushwhacking was pretty straightforward.
Climbed the east ridge solo. Saw no one else that day.
Double summited Tweedy and Torrey from Torrey Lake. Great day for my first time in the Pioneers. Storm moved in and we woke up to six inches of snow on Labor Day!
snowshoed it alone from the bridge (about a mile before Dinner Station). Got going at 6:45, followed Birch creek road past the "primitive road" sign for about 1.5 miles and cut straight up the hill. Summited in blizzard conditions at 11:45, weather got worse after about 10 minutes on summit, had to come down in total whiteouts, it was pretty fun, loved my nice white view from the top.
Climbed from Tweedy Lake via east ridge on beautiful July Day. Getting to east ridge was class 2-3 and fairly simplebut BOY are the rocks loose on the north side of that ridge! Helmets and careful footing for groups!
ATV's on the trail up to the lake were a pain in the ass!
I have climbed this one 2 times. The second time my sister and I were almost stuck by lightening! Our hair was standing on end. Talk about feeling helpless.
An excellent day. Kept it on the down low and really enjoyed the ascent. As with most peaks, the views just kept getting better and better on the ascent. Spotted three others on Tweedy's summit and some campers at Torrey Lake.
