From Cloudburst  Sucess!

Hike isn't too bad, coming down from Winston Peak to the ridge is steep and loose...better views from Winston Ridge.

Hiked from Cloudburst Summit  Sucess!

Hiked to the top from the use trail at Cloudburst Summit. Descended down to the Pacific Crest Trail, and hiked that back to Cloudburst Summit. According to the unreliable GPS on my iPhone, total distance was about 3 miles with about 1,400 feet elevation gain.

Cloudburst Summit  Sucess!

First time ever walking on snow (I'm originally from the southern US.) First time solo hiking. First time going off-trail. It was short but exciting for me. Not too difficult to find a path up.

went looking for snow  Sucess!

Took a trip up to the middle-high country the day after an early season storm to see if there was any snow. There wasn't. The cool air was very enjoyable though. With Winston Ridge and Mt. Waterman.

West Ridge  Sucess!

The Crest Highway was closed about 3 miles west of Cloudburst Summit. So we took the PCT east to the point where it crosses the highway again and from there we climbed the west ridge directly among beautiful boulders and under gorgeous pine trees to the summit area. Descended directly south to Cloudburst Summit and hiked on the PCT and highway back to the car. Overall 8 miles roundtrip with 1500 feet of elevation gain. Great day in that area.

Good bouldering and skiing!

Hiked and bouldered on this peak numerous times, and snowshoed with Melba^^
I can now add skiing to the various activities I've done on this peak. Very nice spring conditions on 3/26/11.
