I was thinking of doing a spring climb up Breitenbach this weekend and was wondering if anyone has any experience with this mountain this time of year? I did Lost River two years ago about this time and the climb was great.

Brad-
We did Breitenbach in spring-like conditions in March 07. Here's my TR:

Thanks for the information. It should be fun. Hope the weather cooperates this weekend.

Lots of people seem to be going for LRP and Mt. B. I have a trip scheduled the first of June to do both. I wonder what all the buzz is about these two peaks?

Best way to answer that question is to get after it and find out for yourself! Unfortunately, this season the first of June is going to be past prime climbing time. These are really sweet peaks to climb and ski while the snow lasts.

But don't let that turn you off. These are really fun to do in summer conditions as well.

It's all good, I'm still going. Not planning / wanting a ski descent, but hoping for just enough crampon snow up LRP and enough snow melt to make it up Pete Creek without too much water flowing through it.
