Lane Peak: Zipper & Lovers Lane


Intermediate Alpine Climb - Lane Peak: Zipper & Lovers Lane

one-day, thin conditions

  • Intermediate Mountaineering Climb
  • Moderate
  • Mileage: 5.0 mi
  • Elevation Gain: 1,500 ft
  • Pace: Fast


We will pick the better day of the two closer to climb date, and we'll select the route (Zipper or Lover's Lane) on the spot depending on the conditions. This climb is usually done later when it's considerably easier and may not earn intermediate credit, so we're aiming for thin early season conditions instead to make it more challenging and interesting. With luck, there may be some mixed moves, and some thin ice at and above the chockstone.

Note that during the winter, climbs are often cancelled or rescheduled to a different date due to avy conditions and other factors. We will be climbing a terrain trap, so we'll be making conservative decisions. Please be flexible.

Also note that we'll most likely be breaking trail in deep powder all the way, we can't start until after the Longmire gate opening, and we need to be back before the gate closing. We'll need to motor ahead at a good pace to make it work.
