Trip: TR: Mt Prophet - SE ridge up, SW rib down

Date: 6/19/2017

Trip Report:
Mt Prophet has long been on our to-do list. 3 feet of new snow last Thursday changed our original volcano plan to let us tackle this rarely visited summit.

We enjoyed 12 miles of hike into 39 mile creek camp. day 2, we headed up the southeast ridge. a little bit of brush in the bottom but got better once we reach the 5000ft notch. snow started around the 5000ft level which made traveling easier.

we followed the ridge up and found tracks of some company.

with the exception of one spot, it was a simple and straightforward scramble. Here is a shot of the little spice we got

a low cloud ceiling all day, we see the foothills of the pickets and got a few glimpse of some peaks from our tent during the evening. a few sparse rain drop as we got into the tent and call it a night.

the next day, we woke up to beautiful weather with the entire pickets range in clear view.

we also see the first view of our objective for the first time [img]https://www.amazon.com/photos/share/GkUqpPZQXnEJ3CAwnYT2365oq8qpXg6qqWP2c3NtmG9[/img]

we cross the magnificent valley for the last 1000ft to the summit

we love finding the summit register placed here by Fay Pullen in 2014. the summit register indicates that the peak gets about one visit a year. we're still signing in on page 1.

The big beaver trail was wonderful with big old growth cedars.

Gear Notes:
Crampons, Ice Axe

Approach Notes:
bug juice is a must at this time. approach shoes were very nice for the 12 miles from hwy 20 to 39 mile creek camp. exit was 16 miles from Luna camp back to hwy 20. if you want to splurge, you can get a boat ride and save yourself 6 miles of hiking each way
