Hiked up SE ridge of Peak 10155 to its summit. Then hiked ridge to Vienna and Abe's Chair. Headed down east ridge of Abe's to road. Hiked road back to car at Mill Gulch. Great day.
Snowshoed up Sawmill Canyon. Not a fast pace with all the extra gear we carried, but a beautiful and memorable day. Trip Report
The only other sig on the summit register was from Sean when he climbed this in Jun 2009 (and when he placed the register) so pretty light traffic. Was up on a family vacation staying at a cabin on smiley creek so hiked this peak, but my approach was from one gulch past sawmill on smiley creek road (not sure what its called). It was steep class 2 hiking (no trail) up to the ridge and then a nice scenic walk along the ridge with a view down climber right into sawmill gulch and across to Abe's arm chair, then class 2/3 scrambling up the summit block. Brought my dog so able to skirt most of the more difficult class 3 stuff. Left the road at 6:40 - summited at 9, spent 20 min on summit and back at my car just after 11 AM.
Still tons of snow, but a great day on an interesting ridgeline and basin
