JasonG Posted December 3, 2015 Share Posted December 3, 2015 Trip: Little Devil Peak - Standard Date: 11/29/2015 Trip Report: An inversion is always a good excuse to hike up to a high ridge and escape the gloom, ice, and fog of the lowlands. Even more so when you have to work off Thanksgiving Dinner. And work it off we did- it is close to 6k from the cars to where we camped on a scenic knob overlooking Marble Creek Cirque. The night was long, but not too cold when infused with enough Hunter and we were close enough to the peak that we could get a lazy start the next day, letting the sun warm us as we ate a leisurely breakfast. It was good to catch up with friends and talk of future adventures. The climb itself would be of little interest to most of you- Little Devil is a straightforward walk up, but has fine views. You could probably do it in a day with an alpine start, even in the wintertime, but that would mean you would miss out on spending time in the lonely high country of Teebone Ridge. Given the forecast for the next few weeks I thought a few of you might enjoy some photos with that golden orb in the sky and some fierce peaks of the North Cascades in wintry conditions: Gear Notes: Crampons, ice axe Approach Notes: Monogram Lake Trail Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
