Got off work early, drove a few hours to the north Lake Como trailhead, then hiked up to the wilderness boundary where I bivvied. Continued up the trail until I was below the south ridge of the east summit then made my way up through brush and talus to the neat basin southeast of the summit. Easy going from there, good outing.
Hiked into Lost Horse Lake for the night. Hit the summit the next morning before heading out. The larch in the high basin were in top autumn form. It was a sea of gold up there. Gorgeous.
Camped at Hackney Lake. One of the hottest, buggiest trips ever- but still a great climb! While we were sitting at the summit plaque munching sandwiches and swatting 'skeetos, a group of goats kept peering up the north ridge at us, anticipating our departure so that they could come up and enjoy!
Climbed this with my 7 year old son via the west face, as part of a 4 day backpack trip.
