Anitracite Peak (Pk5002)
(click photo for larger image, then backup to the Thumbnail Sheet)
Anitracite Peak (Pk5002) left of the sharp peak. Drove the road as far as
I could, in one foot of snow. Walking the road to the Coal Lake TH.
At the Coal Lake TH, snow about 2 feet deep, as Ian found out. Beautiful Coal Lake.
Beyond the lake about 1/2 mile, headed straight up. Steep in places and deep snow.
Fay traversing on the ridge, with some ups & downs. Ian nearing the
summit. The group on the narrow summit block (fun route getting there).
Paul setting up for his group photo in the blowing snow. Snowy trees just before
the summit. Annette changing from snowshoes to boots on the steep decent.
