Trip Summary

Overall, we could benefit from more snow on the mountain. Then it would’ve made getting to Spinnaker Peak more direct as we traversed the northeast ridge past Point 5261. But the snow quality was mostly decent.

We went onto the ridge without a hitch. But we needed to drop onto the south before returning to the crest through dry rocks. After that, Martin Peak was only ten minutes each way, much closer than I thought.

Summit Views

Views on Spinnaker were best to the north, but trees had covered most other directions. Martin Peak 5627 was even woodsier than I expected. We needed to move around the summit to see the views.

Despite minor mishaps, we had excellent weather throughout the day.
