Dirty Harry's Peak 5.1.06

With an unusual gap between trips I was eager to get out a give my legs a bit of a stretch. I was hoping for something a bit more exotic than the logging road approach to Dirty Harry's summit. I felt a bit disconnected with the current conditions in the mountains so I felt something safe and familiar would be better. I also wanted something shortish is both time and location from home. I parked near the start of the logging road that summits this peak. I was happy that the snow started higher up than I expected and when I hit consolidated snow it was the best climbing snow I have ever seen. It was hard but super grippy making the slog much less tedious. The weather was a bit unstable with long periods of very heavy hail showers. I only stayed for a moment I am always nervous with the steep drop off to the north which I am sure is heavily corniced. I made good time back to the truck and was treated to some sunny weather for my drive home.

Thanks Mom!
