|Peak:||Mt. Bancroft (13er)|
|Date of Info:||06/12/2020|
Climbed Bancroft SE Ridge from Loch Lomond. Road is still closed at the second gate about a mile below the lake. Road is pretty rough above the first gate and most people parked down there. Very limited parking at the second gate but was able to get a spot around 6:15am. A few easy snow crossings approaching the lake and then a lengthy crossing on the way up to the ridge from the lake. Spikes were very nice to have on this crossing. The ridge itself is easy, straightforward, and almost entirely dry. There is a steep ski line in from the summit to Lake Caroline but I didn't feel comfortable doing it without a partner.
