Summit Peak  
Condition Updates  
Route: Via Treasure Creek
Posted On: 2020-06-21, By: bangerth
Info: Only a few snow fields left, and all but one easy to bypass. The one remaining one is at the cliffs that one has to go around on the right and it would have been nice to go up one of the slopes directly to the shallower area above. Either way, 0.1 miles of a detour at most. Go get it while you can. About 90% of the forest is dead from beetles, and will eventually fall -- creating a giant maze for the part of the "trail" that goes through the forest. 
Route: South and North Ridges

Info: I went over the summit of Summit south to north, as part of the three-bagger with Unicorn and Montezuma. The north ridge of Summit does "go" but that‘s the only nice thing I have to say about it. Expect occasional scrambling with lose rock and scree fields at the angle of repose, and for your route to deviate 100-200‘ from the ridge proper. Test every hand and foothold. The south ridge is all grass and much more agreeable.
