Date: September 26th, 2015

Approach Selected: Via Traverse

Participants: Jason Sayre, CPA (VA), MACIS

Approximate Route Specs:

I am feeling nostalgic and, thus, posting some additional mountaineering community beta. It qualifies as quite an excellent way of climbing two Rocky Mountain National Park gems via my indicated rejuvenating, relaxing line. I highly recommend the chosen path. It is another classic. Understand health-minded city-side training does certainly assist with completing this hike.

I never utilize, or rely upon, GPS. I humbly reflect on solo'ing these Ranked Front Range 13ers, too.

I did essentially the same hike some years back and your
pics document it nicely. Great views in a beautiful area
of RMNP. One apparent difference when I hiked it was
to descend Mummy toward the southeast until I picked
up the Black Canyon Trail, and then backtrack (generally
west) until I regained the Lawn Lake Trail. From your photos
it looks like you backtracked a bit along the Hagues/Mummy
saddle and then descended to regain the trail that extends
from Lawn Lake to the Hagues/Fairchild saddle. Obviously
that "went" OK for you but was there any difficulty in finding
a good point at which to descend?

BTW I really enjoy your reports.

Glad you got them done, also. Sounds like you made a solid route selection! Mummy Mtn. / Hagues Pk - favorite amongst so many pinnacles.

I found it to be manageable

Good. Perfect. Lots more ahead
