Unnamed 13232 B  
Condition Updates  
Route: From North Fork Clear Creek TH
Posted On: 2022-07-16, By: hr011242
Info: Just adding some more pics of the notch along the ridge from 13232B > 13295. The direct descent looked wild so I opted for a nearby loose gully, but it looked like a somewhat reasonable climb up from the other side? Doesn't matter I guess, didn't go that direction. Anyhoo, everything else was very straightforward (and steep!) especially considering that the better part of the first mile from the TH is pretty dang flat. Stats for 232b & 295 starting from NFCC TH: 7.3 miles, 3300', and 4.5 hrs elapsed RT at an easy pace for a mountain chicken. Speaking of, I came across an exceptionally pissed off ptarmigan just ahead of Alan Lake. It actually came at me, bro. Beware angry mountain chicken.

Route: Alan Lake
Posted On: 2022-06-15, By: tjf242424
Info: Totally dry. I was able to drive all the way to the North Fork Clear Creek TH in a Subaru Outback. Following the creek that drains Alan Lake is straightforward travel up open slopes. It gets steep above Alan Lake, but the preferred route is obvious and it's mostly grass. Took about 2 hours each way.

Info: Stayed ridge proper and have to say the route is much more obvious going West to East. I gained the bump in the middle coming from 13,295, but the downclimb towards Notch was pretty obvious at loose C2. The notch is actually pretty fun and short! Instead of the direct line, I took a sloping ramp on the right that took me to the ridge and class2 from there. The annoying part was multiple false summit bumps on the way to 13,232B. The summit still has a tiny jar for register from Alyson Kirk. Register on 13,295 is in sad shape, half eaten by marmots and soaking wet. Register on Lake Fork pk placed by Valerie couple years ago is in excellent condition.

Route: From North Fork Clear Creek

Info: I parked at Winfield cemetery which adds about 3.3 miles and 400 vert round trip on the road. Once off the trail heading towards Alan Lake the route is unrelentingly steep. Mostly dirt and grass. Some avoidable snow near treeline and most snow on the upper slopes is also avoidable. On the ridge one snowfield forced me into 1-2 moves of Class 3 with little exposure on solid rock. The entire rest of the route is Class 2, and this is a good example of how steep a route can get while remaining C2.

Info: Mostly summer conditions. One significant, and steep, snowfield on the ridge, but can get around it on climber's left as one ascends towards the summit.
