Dyer Mt from Mosquito Pass

Postby thatguy » Thu Sep 06, 2012 11:34 am

Hi, anyone have any info on hiking to Dyer from Mosquito Pass/London Mine? Seems like a pretty straight-forward ridge hike but trying to get a sense of the terrain. Bringing someone relatively new to 13er/14er hiking so would like to avoid miles of talus hopping.

thanks,
dave

It's a pretty straightforward ridge walk from Mosquito Pass, and you would get to hike a ranked 13er (Evans) along the way.

If you are doing it soon, it should be fine. We did it early in the season and the snow on the eastside of the notch (between Evans and Dyer) was crappy. The Notch had some easy class 3, but you might be able to find a better line.

We couldn't find a better line on the west side of the notch, so on the return we dropped down into the basin and bushwacked the willows and then joined one of the 4WD roads.

It's not just a nonchalant ridge walk, and I wouldn't call it a "notch." While most of it is pretty gentle terrain, there is a stretch of a tenth to quarter mile that will require some scrambling and navigating around / across some towers and sidehilling on some scree.

Great info, thanks everyone. I'll have to save this route for myself for a later date and head to Grays/Torreys so my friend doesn't feel that she's in over her head.
