REPORT: MAY 25 (SATURDAY) OUSEL PEAK 7,157 feet Five people hiked to Ousel Peak on a cloudy day that threatened rain. They were met with deep snow a third of the way from the top and completed the hike on snowshoes. Instead of following the standard route around the west side of the peak, which seemed problematic given the snow and exposure, the group went straight up the ridge through the trees. On the way down, the skies opened to the sun and briefly presented a panorama of Glacier Peaks. After a warm, pleasant 5 1/2 hour hike, the rain finally started as everyone departed for home.
