"Anderson Peak"  
Condition Updates  
Route: via Lincoln Creek
Posted On: 2020-06-30, By: tjf242424
Info: All snow is avoidable from Anderson Lake to Pt 13,105. From there, the ridge is snow free all the way to the summit. The traverse to Petroleum is also dry, as is the descent directly off the Petroleum summit to Petroleum Lake. The gate at Portal Campground was open and I was able to drive all the way to a campsite near Truro Creek (about 1.5 miles past the CG). I could have easily driven all the way to the Anderson/Petroleum TH in our Subaru Outback, but we elected to use the campsite by Truro Creek as our base camp. 
Route: N Couloir

Info: Climb/skied a North facing couloir from Anderson lake. I was at the base of the couloir at about 5:00 am. Temps stayed above freezing overnight and stayed cloudy most of the night, yet the snow was still very supportive before dawn and continuous from the bottom of the couloir at 12,200' up to the col at 13,400'. A large overhanging cornice waits for you at the top, I exited to the left. Once up to the summit ridge, a nice grass/scree ramp will take you to the summit without any snow. Sketchy drop in around the cornice at 7:15 am, snow quality was good, but lower half is a maze of rock debris to navigate. Great snow route for July, should stay in for a little while...
