Trip Report    

Alpine Scramble - Mount Price

Hardy group persevered despite challenging conditions and weather.

  • Road recommended for high clearance only
  • With melting snow, this winter route won't be in shape much longer without a lot of brush.  Consider avalanche risk in upper gully; we traveled over prior slide debris.

Snowshoes starting shortly after Pumpkinseed Creek.  Crossed Dingford Creek on log after Goat Creek, followed Price Creek up steep gully, with 2 steep steps on right to bypass waterfall areas being most technical part of scramble.  Took pleasant open snow gully SE above Price Lake to NW slope, no problems above this upper gully.  Some forded creek on way back.  Heavy wet snow, light rain in a.m., fog on summit, some rain on return.
