Mt. Shakespere & Ickes

Postby RoguePhotonic » Thu May 17, 2012 7:16 pm

Once again taking a shot in the dark I thought I might see if anyone in this community has info on these peaks. The most you can get out of the Internet is that these mountains exist and that *Shakespare* is the proper way to spell this improperly named mountain due to an error in it's listing. Nice to know that someone in the government can just make a typo and that mistake will last hundreds of years and end up on official maps. :\

So anyway out of all the mountains I plan to summit this summer these are the only two that I know nothing about. I just plan to try and summit them. Mt. Ickes I am going to try and traverse from White Fork Pass up the ridge to the North and then cut across to a saddle and continue up to the summit.

Shakespere I have no plans other then to find my way up as I go from the West.

Anyone done these and are my approaches feasible?

Then with almost no chance in hell, has anyone ever been to or heard of anyone climbing to this small summit noted on this map:

I have been considering if it might be worth trying to get out and onto that spot. It has a direct view up Leconte Canyon and across to Devil's Crags along with everything up Palisade Creek. It might just be worth trying to get photos on.

I climbed the peak noted in the photo. Small cairn on top but no register. I left one in a small multi vitamin bottle. I could not leave anything to write with so if some day you make the climb bring something small for the bottle.
