Info: Clear & very nice enjoyable trip w/ reaching summits. Great, beautiful 13er mountains. This quality, classic route is a unique undertaking & lightly traveled. Prime, excellent, & bluebird summer conditions up high for navigating slopes & ridge line extremely well. Trail runners & light pack were good. Climb safely / swiftly in the hills folks.

2015-04-21  Route: North Ridge

Info: Ive skied the northern trees of Red several times and had some great days there, so after hearing the recent storm caked Red with snow, I decided to yet again ski a peak in my backyard. Drove to 10,300 and parked at the snow closure on the Pennsylvania Creek FS road. Started at 6:15am and skinned into Penn Creek on the snow-covered 4WD road. After about 1.2 miles of easy skinning, I turned right, crossed the creek and followed a 2-day old skin track south, up through the trees. The track had 6-8 inches of fresh powder but the entire area had about 15+ inches of skiable powder. The wind erased the track near treeline so I picked my usual line up the ridge. I sas able to skin all the way to the summit but on the last 600 I was getting blasted by wind and blowing snow. I had plans on getting a 360-degree pano from the summit but the 40mph winds and cold temps kept my camera in the holster. The storm and wind had created some serious wind-load on leeward slopes (as you can see in photo #6) so I skied down along the ridge/cornices and back down to the powder-laden ridge. Once in the trees, it turned out to be the best bc powder day of the year. Approx. 7.75mi RT and 2,900‘ of gain
