Details

Climb starts at Urad Mine. Hike steeply up the west ridge. Snowshoes possible but hope to get by without them.  This is an exploratory trip and actual route is dependant on snow pack.



 



This is a Bobcat trip. The Bobcats mission is to ensure a variety of challenging CMC trips, especially “B Difficult” and “C” hikes and Difficult Snowshoes, for our mostly age-50+ constituents.  We may sponsor other activities of interest to our members, everything from bike rides to camping.  Although we have members, our trips are non-exclusive.  We welcome all CMC members to sign up for any Bobcats trip regardless of age or Bobcats membership. To join our mailing list, write the Bobcats at cmcbobcats@gmail.com.



 



 



 




Notes

The  trip was fun for all.  Due to deep snow we followed the Ruby Gulch trail to roughly 11000' before attempting to gain the ridge.  The hope was to follow thick trees on a SW aspect to tree line where the wind had swept the mountain bare.  Unfortunately the trees were to sparse to provide avalanche protection and the snow was deep enough to pose a threat so we turned around.  Still had a fun day out.  Hope to try again later this year.




Sorry it is past the registration deadline for this event.
