Route: Eider Creek TH, over Campbell
Posted On: 2019-08-24, By: CarpeDM
Info: More of a route description than conditions report. But I didn't want to do a full trip report. This route is much like the one described in trip reports by Chicago Transplant and Doug62. I just happened to find the 4wd road which cut out the bushwhacking section that they did, but put me a bit further from the ridge crest. First, conditions were great: no snow, no avy debris, no logs to step over. I just want to plug starting at the Eider Creek TH, which is a signed, beautiful class 1 trail starting at the 1st switchback up the Mill Creek road. Room for a few cars. Several good campsites here as well. Follow the trail until it intersects the Deep Creek trail, where you hang a left. Keep going on that (also awesome) class 1 trail until you come to a 4wd road and you can look right to see Campbell. (It'll take longer than you think it should, but it's obvious.) Follow the 4wd road up until it ends. You'll quickly see a short little slabby cliffband. I went left to skirt it and kept going up steep grass and dirt steps to make my way to the ridge to Campbell on climber's right. You may be able to find some game trails to help with this. It does get a little junky as you cross some loose rock, but I think this is probably the best way to do T0. It minimizes bushwhacking and minimizes gain on the way down. At the cliffband, you _may_ be able to circle around the trees to the right (in pic2) to get on the ridge directly and avoid some of the loose rock. The ridges are mainly dinner plates, but well stacked - footing is generally good. The scrambling section is about 150 feet of class 3+/easy 4. It's _fairly_ solid. All in all, this was much more pleasant than many bicents I've done, and definitely better than I expected given the nightmare accounts I've heard from others who took other routes. Pic1: the old 4wd road as it crosses the Deep Creek trail Pic2: looking up from near the end of the 4wd road (that slope is steeper than it looks!) Pic3: looking back at where the road comes out of the trees and ends Pic4: looking up Campbell's ridge Pic5: close to the scrambling section (it's easy to unlock the route) Pic6: looking up T0 itself Pic7: map of my approximate route

Route: Fromp Campbell

Info: Other than a quick 20 min bushwack and a very brief 2+ section this route is actually just a straight forward walk up. The standard route looks like the ultimate scree buffet. Done... Does anyone know the meaning or how it got the unoffical name "T0" ?
