|Peak:||McHenrys Peak (13er)|
|Route:||Stone Man Pass|
|Date of Information:||07/08/2012|
As previously reported the trail from Mills Lake to Black Lake has been cleared of downed trees. For the most part the "trail" from Black Lake to Stone Man Pass is clear (and beautiful) with the one exception being the gully that leads up to Stone Man Pass. The gully still has snow in it but you can skirt it on either side with only one part that I would consider dicey. No traction or ice axe necessary. From the pass to summit is one amazing climb on solid rock. On this day the weather was schizophrenic which made for slick slabs. Nevertheless, you can expect fairly wet conditions on the approach as the gorge and surrounding mountains are alive and the water is flowing.
