August 9-10, 2008 (Sat-Sun) - Desolation forest - Jacks Peak - Half Moon Lake

[ Index/photos | Map | Signite.com]

This was a 2-day backpacking trip starting at the Fallen Leaf (Lily Lake) trailhead on August 9, at about 9am. On the first day we hiked past Glen Alping spring to Susie and Heather lakes. A little after Heather Lake and before getting to Aloha Lake, we went off trail in search of Jacks Peak. Instead of following a creek up to south ridge (or east ridge), we veered left too early and ended up scramling up some chutes which had loose rocks or were too steep/technical to climb with heavy backpacks on. We found a ledge to climb down slightly and then followed the creek up some more to what we thought was the peak, but turned out to only be the beginning of the south ridge. From there, we followed the ridge to Jacks Peak. By the time we got to Jacks Peak, it was past 4pm already. We forgoed climbing Dicks Peak and instead scrambled down to Half Moon Lake where we camped for the night. On Aug 10, we simply hiked out to Fallen Leaf, without bagging any more peaks.
