Mount Noyes | 2013-07-07
This peak is not difficult and many websites cover this peak, though I don't think still this peak haven't gained too much popularity.
We parked at the overflow campground. From the parking, we immediately started bushwhacking towards a chimney we could see from the parking which gave us an easy route to avoid the cliffs (see page 2 & 4).
Right about where rock terrain started, we could see most of the way up to the summit. The first obstacle was a rockband which you can see in page 6. We used a ledge (top of Kristen's head in page 6) to go over it.
Everyone (even my grandma) talks about this small but icy chimney (page 15). I can see this chimney can be a problem when ice is exposed in late season (I'm guessing). Certainly bringing ice axe and crampons, or heater to melt the ice would be a good idea. For us though, there was still enough soft snow we only needed ice axe.
