[TR] Mt Elinor- up summer route down winter rote 12/17/2005

Climb: Mt Elinor-up summer route down winter rote


Date of Climb: 12/17/2005


Trip Report:

This was my first solo climb. Thought I'd start out conservative. The road was snow covered about a mile before the lower trailhead. I took my front wheel drive van, chained up, and made it ok but was pushing it. I drove to within a hundred yards of the upper trailhead.


Once on the trail under the tree there was no snow till just about the fork for the summer and winter routes. I took the summer route up. Pretty icy. I was glad I had crampons. Pretty minimal snow. Came down the winter route. The top half was nice with plenty of snow but bottom half alternated rocks and snow.



Gear Notes:

Chains, crampons, ax
