Winter Scramble - Florence Peak (winter)

A rainy scramble of Florence and Sweet Peak that was much more fun than staying inside!

  • Road suitable for all vehicles
  • Road and trail in good condition. Light snow encountered at around 3,500'. No traction necessary. 

Left TH at 8:15 am with light rain. Gained summit of Sweet Peak at 10:30 am. Ran ridge to false summit of Florence, arrived at 12:15. Windy but had some views. Team opted to not attempt true summit due to lack of snow on ridge traverse and potential for slippery rock.Took standard route on descent. Arrived at TH at 3:30 pm. Encountered rain showers on descent. Carried snowshoes and crampons but did not use. Snow was slightly icy in some locations. Snow level started at +/-3,500 ft.
