|2015-06-28||Route: West Ridge
Info: The road is clear to within a hundred feet of the London Mine. I used snowshoes for a short distance beyond the mine, but it was probably not necessary. There were a few short stretches of snow on the road, but they were no big deal. The ridge is almost entirely clear of snow, basically summer conditions.

Info: Follow Bill‘s route description and you will have no problems. Image 1 shows the summit register - I thought Bill Middlebrook might have been there. Image 2 - Damn You Bill Middlebrook - you WERE there!

Info: Hiked London Mtn & Pennsylvania Mtn today. Drove to turn-off for Mosquito Pass on CR 12/Mosquito Pass Rd with no issues. Current snow conditions did not impede on ascent of either peak. The wind was a different story! Routes: Hiked Mosquito Pass rd up to saddle of London & Repeater (13,548‘) in able to gain W ridge of London. Descended same way and crossed American Flats to saddle of Pennsylvania & Evans B, and hiked W ridge of Pennsylvania. Returned the same way we came. Surrounding peaks (Dyer, Evans B, "Repeater", Mosquito, Treasurevault, etc.) all look easily doable without much effort in snow.

Info: Hiked it in the afternoon. Dry, summer conditions. Came up Mosquito Pass Road from the east. Road was dry to London‘s ridge. Went up in a Ford Ranger with good clearance and tires. Could not have made it in my Jeep Liberty. Were a few small boulders on the road, but was able to squeeze by.
