Details

From the Mayflower Gulch parking area, head east along the road toward Mayflower Gulch. Leave the road at approx 11,370 ft and cross Mayflower creek to the base of Atlantic’s west ridge. Snowshoes probably necessary for this crossing. Switch to boot crampons at around 11,800 ft. Follow the ridge to Atlantic’s summit.

From the summit, descend the same route back to the parking area.

We will consider making this a D hike by adding an out-and-back to Pacific Peak (13,950 ft). Trip total would be 6.8 miles 4,060 ft.

All participants must leave both Saturday and Sunday (June 1 & 2) open. We'll plan to go on Saturday but use Sunday as a backup if weather and snow conditions dictate.

This will be a long day with an early start. We will leave Mayflower Gulch trailhead at 6 am.
