 Irwin M. Fletcher Mountain  

Climbed Fletch on July 1st with the sounds of Harold Flatmeyer's Fletch theme song on repeat in my head.....along with Fletch movie quotes.

Left at 6:30 AM and strolled up and down in about 4.5 hours. There were six snowfields I had to cross, but the snow is melting quickly. Harder snow in the early AM, and then slushy by 10ish. Microspikes were needed, but if I had brought my crampons, I'd have used them. Much more snow than I expected, so hopefully the pics help. Perfect weather. 10 out of 10. I enjoyed the snow "knife" edge near the top, and was careful not to be climbing on the corniced side. Enjoy! Great 13er! (Skipped Drift)
