Little Kachess Peak  Loop.    1/29/2021

Went up the south ridge to the summit then west down forested slopes to the lake.   1-2 feet of powder on the upper slopes.  Low clouds filled the valley and obscured views down to  the lake.

The slope down is heavily forested. Steep but still doable. Used snowshoes up higher in the deeper snow and micro spikes on lower section where the thin snow was icy. Did frequent checks with gps to stay on planned route. I would recommend the loop if okay with backcountry navigation. Note: the upper ridge does have one steep down section (ice axe recommended) just north of Point 4884.

Parking (good for any car)  is 1.5 miles before the summer trailhead.   The loop  was 9.5 miles with 3150 feet gain.
