"Kicking of Day 1 of the first annual PEAK WEEK with a Cascade classic... Dave and I made it to the TH at Barlow Pass by 7am. A fog layer completely burned off by the time we emerged into Gothic Basin. Made it to Foggy Lake by 9:30 and then pushed up the standard South Gully Route. Only had to cross 1 patch of moderate angle snow that'd softened so crampons never made it out of pack. Exciting airy scramble up to one of the best summit views I've ever experienced. On the summit at 11:15. A marine layer shrouded all signs of civilization to the west... and so it was a pure 360 of dramatic rock" - scott, Aug 1, 2016
"We weren't the only ones with the idea to get out on a beautiful fall day. We were really surprised with the number of people camping up in Gothic Basin (47 signed in to camp overnight). Fortunately, the entire basin area is big enough to handle quite a few people. We ran into several people hiking out in the morning as we headed up, and ran into several more coming in to camp as we descended in the afternoon. We really like starting climbs on the old Monte Cristo Road, as it's a nice easy way to get going on flat ground - looks like Monte Cristo is finally closed for environmental clean up ac" - BryHong8, Oct 4, 2015
"There is a sign less than a mile down Monte Cristo Road/Trail that warns of damage to the road ahead due to mud slides, directing hikers instead to take a bypass trail. I learned on the way out that this is not necessary as the road seems to be repaired, despite the sign. At the outhouse I took the trail marked "Weeden Creek". The trail is well maintained although slightly overgrown in a few spots, and occasionally very steep. A half moon was visible over the mountain for my entire ascent to the lake. There are only 2 snow patches left on the South face of Del Campo Peak, 3-4 on Gothic Peak" - Jeb, Oct 7, 2012
