We climbed the Lackawanna Gulch snow route. There was postholing, snow climbing, wind and loose talus. A good time was had. The end.
I must say I am glad I didn't go up the south slopes! Combined Lackawanna with the French group via a car shuttle. Descended directly down the south ridge to our car and got into some nasty bushwacking. We probably should have countoured s.w. into the avy gully.
En route to UN 13,660B. 4:50 roundtrip.
Had this one all to myself on a beautiful fall day, also made a stop on the summit of UN 13660B on the way back down.
Climbed the NW ridge route via Lackawanna gulch. Enjoyed the snow climb on stable snow at the head of the little-traveled basin. Had a great climb and experienced my first ever Ptarmagin attack, guess I was close to a nest!
Great outing with Brad Snider. The weather prevented us from seeing alot but what we did see was spectacular.
Perhaps the longest 1.6 miles I've ever been on.
Fun, cloudy/snowy/windy day with miztflip. Steep and sometimes slippery slope with fresh 2"+ layer of snow. Lots of avalanche debris in the gulch. No summit view today, but definitely a good workout for the legs and lungs--don't be fooled by the short distance!
This was one STEEP climb. I left my capilene shirt on a lower shoulder so if you find it, enjoy! Good weather, good conditions. Good early season climb as well
My plan that weekend was to attempt Ice Mountain but the weather ended up a bit unstable. So I went for an easier hike on "Lackawanna Peak" that went really well. Easy access and pristine alpine tundra made this mountain a lot of fun.
