Finnegan Peak

Postby RobertPetrowsky » Tue Jun 26, 2012 10:35 am

Has anyone climbed Finnegan Peak from Gold Dust Peak? My girlfriend wants me to take her camping in that area and I'm looking for information about how feasable it is. I was thinking we woud climb New York Mountain from the W Lake Creek trail and climb the ridge south to Gold Dust. From there I was curious if it was safe to climb the ridge north over Finnegan and down into the lake creek area again? If anyone has any info on this I would appreciate it!

"Athletes express themselves physically, this is their art. As an athlete, exhausting oneself on the field or or on the track or on the trail or on the mountain brings calm and satisfaction. Thrashing about… our expression." - Steve Gleason

Looks like a lot of fun! I think I'll save that one for hiking with a more experienced friend. My girlfriend is a bit too afraid of exposure. I guess I can still make NY and Gold Dust with her. Thanks for the link!
