Grabbed number 100 with Don Brooks on Friday. We left the car at 0745 and and took 2 hours to get to Nada Lakes.

Between the two lakes we drifted to the right up into the drainage north of Mount Temple. Great terrain through here.

We headed south towards the summit eventually reaching the snow gully leading to the final bit of rock climbing.

From the top of the snow we scrambled up class 3 blocks to a notch in the ridge. We scrambled up the first pitch (30' of 5.0) and then set up a belay at the crux slab.

Once on top, I brought Don up and we enjoyed a good hour on the summit. Haze dominated the scene, but Mount Temple proved to be a great way to finish the list in just about every way.

Two rappels got us back down close to the packs and gear we had left near the top of the snow.

Back down the snow, through the cool larch glades, and on to finding dicey and fwb who were repeating a trip Don and I had done last August to The Mole and Three Musketeers.

Had a relaxed hike out trying to see if I could name all 100 peaks in the Back Court. Of course I couldn't do it, but here they are:


Many thanks to the friends who not only made it possible, but fun as well. Now, lets go ski them all!

Way to go Randy, I knew you were close. I am glad to see that I am not the only one with the list printed out and hanging. Hopefully some day I can do the same.

I am addicted to summits! I can't eat, drink or breath without them. Life without mountains would really suck.

Congratulations on finishing this list. We have climbed more than a few of the Backcourt peaks together and I am enriched by all of those memories.
