|Peak:||Mt. Wilson (14er)|
|Date of Information:||07/07/2011|
Summitted Mt. Wilson 07-07-11 via Northeast Ridge from Navajo Lake. Route is mostly clear of snow. You must cross a large snowfield in upper Navajo basin and must cross two steep couloirs. Crampons not necessary unless you are hiking VERY early in the morning. We crossed the couloirs around 9 AM and were able to get very good traction. Ice axe is highly recommended as a fall in either couloir could likely be fatal if you did not have the ability to self arrest. We did not need snowshoes or crampons on this climb, but ice axe is nescessary for safety's sake.
