"Bumps Pond + Erebus Mountain s Sleeping Beauty December 26th, 2018 Bumps Pond 10:31a We started our journey at 9:30 this morning and decided to stop for a rest about half way up Sleeping Beauty going towards Bumps Pond. Looking up you can see the top of Sleeping Beauty and the ice that is forming down the side of it. When we sat down we started talking and all of the sudden a tree that was lying down on a rock above me shifted and fell almost hitting me. Francis said it was because the tree was on ice then he tried to shift it around a little bit but it didn’t move. 10:57a We have " - devenmosher24, Dec 26, 2018
"Sleeping Beauty November 8th, 2018 12:11p We started our hike at 11:55a today and parked right at the trailhead.He didn’t carry anything but a light sweatshirt and I decided to bring a heavy coat and a 50 lbs backpack.

Continued on the trail down to Bump's Pond. From there I took Erebus trail towards the north slope before quickly making my way off " - LGH-Tom, May 12, 2018
"Still a few inches of snow with some ice on top. The backside of the mountain going from the summit down to Bumps Pond only had icy sections in the steepest spots. Could have used micro spikes, but managed without them. Just took a little longer. " - cmarion1979, Apr 21, 2018
"Sunny and pretty warm mid-April hike. The trail was pretty busy with people taking advantage of the weather. Trail conditions were pretty wet with all the melting snow and rain from earlier in the week. Nice views of the lake and Bumps Pond is a gorgeous spot. " - Gregrog, Apr 14, 2017
