Second trip up the mountain, and this time we approached via the west ridge by scrambling up west slopes.
This one has been on the back burner list for quite some some, put it off due to lack of views on yet another woodsy summit.
Alas, climbing season finally came to an end after four months of excellent weather
Salmon La Sac Road was clear up to the turnaround outside of Cayuse Campground.
Salmon La Sac Road was still under a sheet of ice from Roslyn to the pullout before the bridge/NF-46.
Three months shy of seven years since our initial visit (minus the yellow lab) back in 2009.
After waiting for weeks, we finally got a good weather window to get up this peak.
I had hoped to go up Mount Kent but changed my mind after realizing getting good views at the top wouldn’t have been possibility.
I wanted to climb The Louvre today, but road walk beyond gated Road 4315 looked unappealing.
Most of the approach was on trails, followed by a little over 1,000' of rock and scree scramble to the top.
Photos from this trip can be found here. It had been over a year since we last made an appearance in Salmon La Sac, so it was time to revisit.…
