The long march  Sucess!

After doing King's, South King's, and Painter Peaks all in a row and finishing off with this one, it's one heck of a hike back to the trailhead. Roughly 32 miles altogether, over 5500 feet of climbing, and just over 17 hours of clock time

Kings Peak - 13,528
South Kings Peak -13,512
Painter Peak - 13,387
Trail Rider - 13,247

One of Five 13ers in a dy  Sucess!

August 13 I backpacked into the Chain Lakes, and camped. Next day I backpacked to Lake Beard above Lake Atwood. August 15 I backpacked over 5 peaks, namely Trail Rider Peak (aka Ramp Peak) at 13247 ft, Roberts Peak (aka Pyramid Peak) at 13287 ft, North Emmons (aka Pinnacle Peak) at 13068 ft, South Emmons (aka Glacier Peak) at 13170 ft, and Mt Emmons at 13440 ft.

From Emmons I dropped down to Oke Doke Lake and camp above the 4th Chain Lake.

Kings-Emmons Ridge Run  Sucess!

#1 8-15-13 With Brent as part of "the northern 4 (5). # 2 7-25-16 With Signe as part of the Kings-Emmons Ridge Run. Either one of these "jaunts" will test your determination and ability to boulder hop.

from Timothy Lakes Basin  Sucess!

I hiked this one and Painter Peak with my brother Eric on a very windy day. We were attempting Kings Peak from a southern approach but got turned back by the wind and the fact that it was taking much longer than we planned.
