Zephyr and I decide to try out this Teanaway Classic. We did the approach from Longs Pass and hit snow around 5500 feet. We put on our microspikes at 6000 feet and continued off-trail from Longs Pass. The ridge traverse from Longs Pass is mostly a walkup with one small rock obstacle along the way. We started to go down to Ingalls Pass but with the fresh new snow we realized this was going to be quiet hazardous. So we came back the way we came. Lots of people at Ingalls Pass and Lake but no one other than us on Not Hinkhouse Peak. Snow conditions were not bad but everyone should be using heavy caution if they are going Class 3 plus above 5500. Killer views today and a great summit.

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

I hope to do some summits and waterfalls this year with my husband EastKing.

I wondered what it might be like taking a left at Longs Pass and running the ridge.

Beautiful images.  Larch on snow is always a winner.

Some interesting background on the peak's odd name, courtesy of EastKing's SummitPost page:

Quote:
The most recent edition of Beckey's Cascade Alpine Guide: Columbia River to Stevens Pass erroneously identifies as Hinkhouse Peak the highest point on the ridge between Longs Pass and Ingalls Pass in the Teanaway/Mt. Stuart area. The effort to have a peak officially named to commemorate Jim Hinkhouse originally applied for that peak to be so named. However that application was withdrawn at the request of the Washington State Board on Geographic Names.
