Beautiful hike to the north and then western side of East Beckwith. Flowers have not yet come out but incredibly green and beautiful views of now at Owens the castles and looking back at Ruby Mountain and not Owens. With Kim and Lily.
Ascent was actually over 2,200. Very rocky and technical on first part of 409.
Good moderate late spring hike with steep start. Flowers weren’t quite out yet, except for the Glacier Lilies. With Kim and Lily
Mostly uphill. Had lots of snow but it was kind of icy. Skis lost traction and I had to put skins on. Didn’t have nearly enough control even with cable bindings. Fell often and had to rely on my arms way too much. Wouldn’t do this again without heavier/duty gear. With Larry and Kim.
Don't ride again. Too long, steep and technical
