"Anderson Peak"  
Condition Updates  
Route: Tellurium Rd
Posted On: 2022-07-05, By: B_2
Info: Combo with Petroleum: loop from Enterprise Mine “road” then bushwhack back from Petroleum. It is not worth it to drive up Tellurium Rd for more than a couple hundred yards. You can walk faster and 4WD would be supremely ew on the loose smooth baseball-y to basketball-y rocks. Someone with a high level OCD dug pits/mounds on the entire mine road. This is mildly annoying to walk up but still a pretty easy and pleasant approach. Scree is level 10 gross to gain the ridge if you go to the very top of the mine road. Save yourselves and leave the road a few switchbacks before the top and hop on the obvious easier grassy slope to the east. 
Route: Anderson/Petroleum TH

Route: Anderson Couloir

Info: Couloir was in, snow was perfect for climbing. Totally stable. I think it will be in for a while longer. Then we took the ridge over to Petroleum peak. 
Route: From Tellurium Creek
Posted On: 2021-07-28, By: CoHi591
Info: Parked at the junction of 742 and Tellurium Creek road, which is 6 miles past the Dinner Station CG. Parking for a few vehicles and good camping just a little ways down the road before it gets rough. I completely blew by the turn off from Tellurium Creek road onto the "road" that you're supposed to take up the peaks. I'll post a picture below of the turn off. It's very shortly after you pass a nice meadow on your right. The way is easy to follow, but it really isn't much of a road. Came down the same way I went up. Would probably approach these from the other side next time. Everything above treeline was pretty hazy. 
Route: via Lincoln Creek

Info: All snow is avoidable from Anderson Lake to Pt 13,105. From there, the ridge is snow free all the way to the summit. The traverse to Petroleum is also dry, as is the descent directly off the Petroleum summit to Petroleum Lake. The gate at Portal Campground was open and I was able to drive all the way to a campsite near Truro Creek (about 1.5 miles past the CG). I could have easily driven all the way to the Anderson/Petroleum TH in our Subaru Outback, but we elected to use the campsite by Truro Creek as our base camp. 
Route: N Couloir
Posted On: 2019-07-28, By: KJMc
Info: Climb/skied a North facing couloir from Anderson lake. I was at the base of the couloir at about 5:00 am. Temps stayed above freezing overnight and stayed cloudy most of the night, yet the snow was still very supportive before dawn and continuous from the bottom of the couloir at 12,200' up to the col at 13,400'. A large overhanging cornice waits for you at the top, I exited to the left. Once up to the summit ridge, a nice grass/scree ramp will take you to the summit without any snow. Sketchy drop in around the cornice at 7:15 am, snow quality was good, but lower half is a maze of rock debris to navigate. Great snow route for July, should stay in for a little while...
