Climbed it with my dog this morning. One hour fifty minutes to summit from trailhead. One hour twenty minutes to descend. Lots of snow & ice along the north slopes. We parked downtown next to the bridge and hiked up. Added 1.8 miles roundtrip. As a side note, there is no parking lot at the new trailhead so it worked it out perfectly for us.
Had some time to kill on ice climbing trip. Worth the views
Great hike and views from summit block.
Climbed (hiked) to E Summit. We attempted to scramble to the "true" W Summit, but were thwarted by a steep, loose and exposed gully. We would have been happy with our E summit if it weren't for the visible summit register on the W summit. Indeed, it appears that the W is higher. Gonna have to go back with more cojones and maybe a rope and some gear??????
Had to carry Duchess across the creek, great views, visit to Hot Springs afterwards was the best!
Nice hike with my son and Duchess, Oak Creek running very high, had to wade through it - about knees high
Climbed up to the top with my mom and sisters, then got chased by the weather back down.
