Early Summer Hike  Sucess!

Started just north of Stergen Meadows at the head of Arizona Creek. Hiked a road, then climbed open country from Ten Cent Meadow up through a notch. Traversed north around the west side of the ridge line to the summit block. Climbed a short third class pitch to reach the top of the block. Cumulus clouds and a breeze kept the temperature pleasant. Descended further west to avoid the exposed third class descent.

Stonehouse Route  Sucess!

Heidi and I started from Stonehouse Creek at 0900, but went up ridge on right instead of left. Knowledge gained is that ravine is crossable to left ridge at 7,000 ft. Reached summit at 1:30 and were joined by Bighorn ewe and lamb. Use care at 2nd stream crossing as there is a big rock you could get high-centered on.

Killer Summit  Sucess!

Climbed from "Arizona Creek" road. Stopped car at 6100' which added 8 miles to the round trip (4 miles to the base of the West Pueblo face). Hike up the east face just to the left of the non-summit cliffs. Traversed half mile on the west-back side of the cliffs to get to the summit block. Scrambled summit block from the south. Didn't like summit, goat crap everywhere left tons of bugs. Made the stay unpleasant. Then again...that is southeast Oregon for you.

A Gem of a Peak  Sucess!

Camped above Ten Cent Meadow and made an early morning ascent. Very cool peak and the views were amazing!

Great early spring peak  Sucess!

Great time of year to be in the high desert. Found one of the ten junipers in the Pueblos on this route, its kind of amusing that such a common tree could be so rare in this area.
