Indianhouse May 2006

Joe Stock and I headed out for Indianhouse Mnt (4350 feet) in the Chugach Mountains on a gorgeous May 27, 2006. Joe had a wedding to attend in the afternoon, so we had to make it pretty quick. The conditions were quite good and we did the whole climb roundtrip in 3:45.

Breaking out on the ridge above the alders and bushwhacking we were met by great grass slopes up to the point were we had to traverse over to the main gully.

At the first Y, take a right.
At the second Y, also take a right. Very loose scree in this part of the gully.
