Ascent Trip Report

Attempt on Lemah 3 with Peter, Larry, Ed, Brian, and Chris.

Hiked in from Pete Lake TH Saturday evening and camped a mile or so past Pete Lake at stream. Got up at 5am and started hiking at 5:45am. At 2nd bridge on PCT (currently washed out) take a right and follow flagging until it peters-out. Headed up Lemah valley, through beautiful and mosquito-infested Lemah Meadows and then up the valley onto the snow.

We were traveling on snow and scrambling steep, slick brush, rocks, moss and grass. Turned around at 6,750' due to lack of visibility and uncertainty re the route. Dinner at Old No. 3 in Ronald (super drunk guys yelling and dropping F-bombs made for an interesting meal).
