Tiffany  8245'
Clark   7890'
Rock   7971'
M Tiffany  7967'

On Saturday, I was able to get out in to the mountains and chose the Winthrop area again.  The weather looked OK for the Tiffany Mtn area, so I headed for the Freezeout Ridge TH. 

I was hiking by 11am and ran into a couple other groups coming down.  It was cloudy and a bit cold but at least the clouds were higher than the peaks.  I reached the Tiffany summit to some good views across the valley where a couple of my other planned summits were.

Next, I headed over towards Clark Pk.  A trail traversed it's West side, then off trail for 500' gain to reach the summit.  I hiked back down the ridge and then was off towards Rock and Middle Tiffany.  I dropped into the basin on Tiffany's East side.  Many larches and fall colors as I made my way to the pass above Tiffany Lake.

I easily walked up Rock Mtn.  Big grassy slopes lead the way.  From there, I dropped to the saddle that lead to Middle Tiffany.  Another easy walk up with wide open views.  It was cold and breezy, so I didn't stop for too long.  I headed back to Whistle pass and back down Freezeout Ridge.  Along the way, I saw about 10 cows on the trail.  I've been thinking about a steak ever since.

That's a fun area, and the larches on Tiffany and around Upper Tiffany Lake are very good, and an interesting contrast to the thick but larchless forest on Middle T and the total lack of trees on Rock.

Nice wildlife sighting.

How is the road up to this area? Is there any need for 4 wheel drive?

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

once the pavement ends, it's a washboard.  however, any car can make it, just go slow.

Are there any roads closures in the area because I plan on going there with a couple people next week?
