Mummy Mountain

Route: Southeast slopes
Posted On: 2020-07-04, By: sc00badoug
Info: Only a few remaining small snow fields in the tree section, and one on the SE ridge. Many downed trees in the tree section, but the rock cairns help guide up or down through that section. Recommend going a little farther on the Black Canyon trail before headed in, compared to the route description. This is also where the rock cairns are. When heading down, you turn right at this rock formation at tree line. I think this formation should be named "sleeping dog rocks".

Info: I encountered a little snow on the trail after the Black Canyon Trail intersection, but it was negligible and easily navigable. Otherwise the entire route is snow free. 
 
Route: Southeast Slopes, Northwest Slopes (to Hauges)

Info: I traversed the full Mummy Range and thus did not climb down any route I climbed up. Keep that in mind when reading these Mummy Range conditions reports. Southeast Slopes: From Lawn Lake Trailhead the trail to Mummy Mountain's southwest slopes is fantastic. Easily one of the best trails I've ever been on. The turnoff for the Black Canyon Trail near Mummy Mountain is obvious and signed but the turn to make your way to Mummy is not obvious. I went a few tents of a mile down the trail and simply walked into the woods, towards a saddle. The photos on the route description show a big rock and I'm not sure it's 100% necessary to find, since I don't know if I did or didn't. In any case once you break through treeline the route is very obvious and turns into mild-then-steepening class 2 tundra and talus hopping to the summit. Northwest Slopes: Basically identical to the southeast slopes, just in the opposite direction. Hagues Peak is left on the ridge line across the saddle, which is a wonderful alpine meadow. This was an easy and enjoyable part of the climb. 
 
Route: SE slopes via Lawn Lake to Black Canyon
Posted On: 2013-05-27, By: krishcane
Info: Lawn Lake approach trail starts major post-holing at around mile 5 in the morning or mile 4 in the afternoon. Snow around Lawn Lake itself is messy and deep still, though snowshoes probably would make it fun again. Above treeline on Mummy‘s SE slopes, snow was all avoidable until the summit and well consolidated there.
