2014-09-20  West ridge via Elliots Ridge  Dry route for the most part. Some class 3, but more "difficult class 2". Some marshy areas to cross in the valley that I can imagine would be a pain in early summer, but were easy this time of year. Some "fun" bushwhacking in the willows as seen in 3rd pic. awilbur77   2014-09-21 4  1      
2012-06-17  South ridge via Piney Creek  Great climb! Trail up to basin below Kneeknocker Pass is snow free but muddy in spots. Beautiful camping in that basin! Basin itself snow free and the way up to Game Pass is also snow free. Descent off other side of Game Pass has some remaining snow but can be avoided. The west slopes (you must pick the correct gully as said in Scotts‘ SP description) is snow free and the south ridge is snow free. Traverse to Powell looked snow free. Windy but beautiful day. Cliff Lake (below Eagles Nest) was still frozen. Bubble Lake was 100% thawed. Backside of Kneeknocker Pass (Black Creek side) was still snow covered requiring axe/traction. Piney side of Kneeknocker was snow free. PM me for any more details. Matt Lemke   2012-06-17  0
