June 12, 2017, Esmeralda Peak
« on: 06/13/17, 10:18 PM »

3 of us, 2nd Day Adventists, gathered to worship up the N Fork Teanaway yesterday.  Parked at the totally unnecessary road closure at the Iron Peak trail head(Forest Service - tear down this wall!).  Hiked the road and up the Fortune Pass trail to ~5000' before turning west and skiing up to the 6640'+ Esmeralda Peak.  Great skiing up and down but otherwise looking done for S-facing Longs/Ingalls Pass routes.  More skiing lingers over those divides for folks willing to hike to the snow.

My buddies do but they don't post.  It wasn't a good day for views and then we climbed up into a cloud.  I can forward you a slideshow from last year's tour.   Carl Simpson(Freebird) posted a Teanaway video with some Esmeralda footage last year in late May.
